Thelma's obituary read "Thelma Carpenter's two great professional rivals were Joyce Gardner and Ruth Harrison, and she had to wait until 1940 to win her first women's professional billiards championship. Though Ruth Harrison was the better snooker player, Thelma Carpenter came to dominate women's billiards, and eventually retired for lack of rivals. In 1953 she was still good enough to make a break of 328. After winning the women's amateur billiards championship in 1932, Thelma Carpenter was much in demand to visit clubs and take on the local champion. In 1934 she played an exhibition match against Sydney Lee, the men's amateur champion... according to contemporary report. The run of 41 close cannons which she made in the course of a break of 99 was really a high accomplishment, as very few men amateur players could do the same. Nevertheless, Lee emerged victorious by 10,258 points to 8,709."
