I'm a bit confused about the meaning of "dick" in the following context. Girl comes to pub and wants to participate in a pool tournament. She is told, that "it's men only".
Everyone is looking now. I can’t back down, and now that I’m being challenged, I want to prove myself. I take a cue from the rack. There are some balls scattered on the table, a few reds, and all the colours. I drop down and aim for a red near the cushion. It rattles the jaw of the pocket, and there’s a collective holding of breath as it drops. I pot the black ball and straighten up. ‘So what do I need to show?’ I say. ‘A dick, or a minimum level of competency?

I guess, she asks if "a dick" is the only "ticket" to this tournament, but what does "minimum level of competency" mean then? Google directs me to Dick Lane and Dick Jaspers as pool players, but, suppose, they have nothing to do with this situation :D Absolutely confused about this sentence :(:(
