Michaela Tabb (born 11 December 1967, in Bath, England) is a Scottish professional snooker and pool referee who has established significant milestones for female officials in cue sports. In 2002, Tabb became the first woman to referee at a professional ranking snooker tournament. In 2007, she became the first female referee to take charge of a world-ranking snooker final, and in May 2009 was the first woman to referee the World Snooker Championship final — the sport's highest refereeing honour. She oversaw the World Championship final for a second time in 2012. Tabb formerly played on the women's eight-ball pool circuit, winning a number of titles as a solo competitor and as a member, and later captain, of the Scottish ladies' pool team. Introduced to the game by a boyfriend, Tabb started playing competitive pool in 1991, at the age of 23. The following year, she was selected to play on the Scottish Ladies' Pool Team. She went on to captain the team to two consecutive "Grand Slams" in 1997 and 1998, accomplished by winning the Nations Cup, European Championships, and World Championships in the same season. She remained on the team until 2003.
