Ten-time ladies' world champion Reanne Evans has entered the Q School qualifying event in May in a bid to earn a World Snooker tour card.
A second female player, Heather Clare from Leicester, has applied too.
Scotland's Marcus Campbell, who won a Players Tour Championship minor-ranking event in 2010, is also in the draw.
The Q School runs from 14-25 May at the Meadowside Leisure Centre in Burton and the four semi-finalists in each of the two tournaments will earn a two-year card for the World Snooker tour.
A record 166 players have entered this year, compared to last year's 145, from 22 different nations.
