Are you curious to know who stands out among the top players in women's pool?

As a health and fitness coach, I've noticed that even in sports like billiards, where top-notch fitness isn't a primary requirement, many female competitors maintain impressive physiques.

At Total Shape, we spent nearly a week discussing and selecting the most attractive billiards players. To ensure fairness, we turned to our readers to vote for their favorites.

Delve into a world where skill meets charm, and uncover how these remarkable women redefine the tables of billiards.

The Hottest Female Billiards Players

We’ll start the list from the bottom and work our way up to everyone's favorite.

Let’s begin.

11. Jasmin Ouschan

Jasmin Ouschan isn't just a master of the cue stick; she's a knock-out, turning heads every time she enters the room.

Hailing from Austria, she broke into the professional scene in 2002, and it wasn't long before she became an official member of the Women's Professional Billiards Association in 2007.

10. Emily Duddy

She pursued her career through the Amsterdam straight pool championship, and in 2010, at the age of 26, she started her professional career.

She reminds me of several of my clients who began their fitness journeys later in life but achieved remarkable success.

Today, Emilly (a.k.a. ‘The Butterfly Effect’) is one of the top 10 best female billiard players in the USA, representing the country in seven world championships.

She earned her place on 2015’s TruTv reality show "The Hustlers" and fully deserves her place among the most attractive billiards players.

9. Mary Avina

Mary Avina's dedication to billiards since the age of 14 echoes the commitment I've seen in clients who fall in love with their fitness journey and dedicate themselves to mastering it.

Meanwhile, she also became a martial arts instructor and an impressive painter.

8. Jeanette Lee

She is a former number one and one of the most influential sportspersons (recognized by “Billiards Digest” and “Billiards Magazine”), with more than 30 international and local tournaments conquered.

Declared several times Player of the Year and a gold-decorated medalist at the World Games in Akita, she was finally introduced into the Women’s Professional Billiards Association Hall of Fame in 2012.

“Passion and hard work make a great player, but the courage to get up every time you fall is what makes a champion.”

7. Neslihan Gurel

In my career as a fitness coach, I've seen how a well-rounded athletic background can enhance one's presence in any sport. Neslihan Gurel, better known for her striking appearance than her billiards skills, is a prime example of this.

Today, at the age of 37, she works in the fashion industry, involved in shoe design.

6. Ewa Mataya Laurance

Playing billiards since the age of 14, Ewa is considered one of the players with the longest career in the pool world. This professional pool player’s net worth is estimated to be around $2 million.

Becoming a household name, “Striking Viking” also built up a career as a sports commentator for ESPN and TV host for several billiard shows.

From my experience in writing for health publications, I appreciate Ewa Mataya Laurance's contribution to literature with her book 'The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Pool & Billiards.'

Borana Andoni, or “Queen Bee,” is one of the proofs that beauty and the brain can go together. This Tri-State Tour Championship and Amsterdam Straight Pool Championship winner is a woman of many hats and titles.

She holds a Master’s degree in statistics, a Bachelor in finance, and a minor in mathematics, all earned at Fordham University.

Besides science, Borana Andoni studied violin for four years and piano for 12 years, reaching the top 5% of her class at LaGuardia Performing Arts High School. Regardless, she spends most of her free time today at Castle Billiards Lounge.

4. Angelina Paglia

Angelina, being a violinist, is another female pool player involved in music.

Her exceptional billiard skills brought her many titles: Dufferin State Champion, Arizona State 8-Ball Champion, Arizona State 9-Ball Champion, All-American Tour Champion, and NY Tri-State Champion.

3. Jennifer Barretta

Rising to fame in ESPN’s “25 Sexiest Female Athletes of All Time” and “The Top 16 Sexiest Female Athletes,” this billiard player's journey from tennis and fitness pageants to the Professional Women’s Billiards Association is remarkable.

A standout among the world’s top 10 female 9-ball players until 2003, her movie-star looks and fit physique earned her features in Playboy Magazine, several TV shows, and international magazines, securing her the third spot on our list of the hottest women pool players.

2. Anastasia Luppova

Two times European champion in the Russian pyramid, champion of Moscow in the dynamic pyramid, and Master of Sports of Russia, Anastasia Vladimirovna Luppova is the most famous Russian pool player.

An athletic body, cute face, brown eyes, and brown hair stunned the jury in 2009 when she won the Miss Billiards competition.

1. Shanelle Loraine

Shanelle Loraine commenced a billiards career in 2000 and quickly showed off her potential, recognized by the Central Florida pool team.

She was a part of the team for four years and built a reputation as a rising pool star.

Shanelle Loraine was born in Japan and raised in Guam, and that mixture of genes and environment contributed to her exotic look. Golden-brown eyes, dark brown hair, and a curvy body placed her among today’s most beautiful female sportspeople.
