2018 VICTORIAN BILLIARDS & SNOOKER JUNIOR TITLES

The Titles were held at the Reventon Snooker Academy on 24th & 25th November, 2018.

Marc Fridman won back-to-back U18 snooker titles with the tournaments high break of 43. He recently returned from the World U18 titles in China and hopes to win back-to-back U18 Australian title in Albury and represent Australia at the 2019 Worlds.

At only 8 years old, Mia Macheda from the famous Ridley family, was the youngest competitor who showed amazing cueing skills.  Her determination to win was proof that she is a future champion. Mia is 2019 U12 Snooker runner up.

14-year-old Damian Thorp was a new face who had played 8-ball but not much snooker. Well he potted some great balls and provided some tough competition in the U15 section.

In U15, Sean Dempsey proved too strong winning 2019 U15 Snooker with some good solid play and tactics.  His brother, Ciaran, was runner up in the Snooker but showed great ability and skill to win the 2019 Vic U15 Billiards.

VBSA Junior Coordinator and Tournament Director, Tony Fridman, said he had never seen so much eagerness and determination to win by all competitors.  They all turned up 60 mins prior to start and were practicing. All parents should be very proud of the dedication shown, which some families travelling by train over 4 hours to get there and “motelled” it overnight. These children are our future champions

A big thank you to Reventon Snooker Academy for providing a fantastic venue and great quality tournament tables for this event.

The certified referees, Denis Coghlan and Jon Moss, who gave their time and professionalism, looked after all matches and deserve a big thankyou

Australian Juniors will be in Albury NSW in January 2019. We wish you all well.

See attached images of the players.
