Female pool players’ first step to UK’s first legal case over transgender rules about-turn – Yahoo Sports

Women pool players have taken the first step towards launching a landmark lawsuit over rules forcing them to play against transgender women.

Telegraph Sport can disclose that lawyers acting for four complainants have submitted a “letter before claim” to the World Eightball Pool Federation and Ultimate Pool Group, accusing the governing bodies of subjecting those born female to “direct sex discrimination and harassment on the grounds of sex”.
