Im sure they do but there is just no professional event/competition available to them. If someone host a world women one pocket championship I m sure more women will begin practicing the game.

Lack of exposure. Also lack of interest, and appeal.

Kind of like asking why aren't there more men who like crochet?

The time window for bearing children is only so long.

In my city there are 8-ball, 9-ball, 14.1 and scotch doubles league. I don't see any one pocket leagues or tournaments.

Because they are smarter than men and realize it's a boring waste of time.

Because one pocket is 100% a gambling game. While some women gamble its a smaller % than men. It takes lots and lots and lots of one pocket gambling sessions to get good at the game. The one exception, and that's cause she gambles a lot, is Jeanette Lee.

This is all my opinion.

For some reason, women and 1 Pocket go together about as well as a surfboard and space travel.

For the same reason women don't participate in as many extreme sports as men do. They're just not quite as stupid as we are.

Clueless. Thanks for sharing though.

Why the hate?
If you don't like 1P, there's no need for the bad vibes....why make a comment like that?
If you don't like 9ball/10ball, there's no need for the negative comments....

then don't watch. the game of billiards/pool is facing a very low point in its history. there's no need to add negativity.

Interesting question.

The usual question is why don't women play as well as men, and I think the answer to that is simply that far fewer girls play pool. But even among pro women pool players there's relatively little one pocket action (that I know of).

Maybe it's that they don't gamble as much, as somebody else said. Maybe it's also that one pocket is a very demanding game and they don't play as well as the men.

Because it requires deep thought, not irrational outbursts that require getting SLA......... Specialized appreciation. Jk of course. There must be a scientific reason no?

+1, I believe this is the primary answer. It is truly a gambling game, how often do you see people playing one pocket for fun?

As far as the original question .... Your post look far more like an ad for product than it does anything else.

I think the reason more women don't play one pocket is because you thought up the question to display your ad..... but, that's just me.

Me. I played one pocket yesterday with a friend. Oh my gosh! We didn't even gamble! It's a great experience. You do things in one pocket that you don't do in any other game.

Prob the same reason LOTS and LOTS of men don't play it. Not that many folks that play it around their neck of the woods, and there are NOT any 1P leagues, thus nobody learned the game.

Prob same reason I don't play Cricket ;)
