2019 VBSA Pennant

As discussed at the AGM, there will be some changes to VBSA pennant in 2019.

  • Season 1 round robin will be 14 weeks (making that season 19 to 20 weeks with essential byes and finals). Season 2 round-robin will be 18 weeks (making that season also 20 weeks with finals – there are no byes in the second half of the year).
  • In season 1 A & B Premier Snooker will revert to 6-player teams. This is being done to satisfy requests from a number of players – but the VBSA expects the snooker community to respond by entering eight 6-player teams in each grade.
  • We will not continue with the 4th frame for the number 1 players in some grades (except in finals).
  • Season 1 Teams need to be submitted by 21st January. The forms will be available on the VBSA web site soon.
  • Monday night billiards (A & B) will commence on the 11th February. Monday night snooker will commence on the 18th February.
  • All Wednesday night grades will commence on the 20th February.

Expressions of Interest - Tournament Director

During each year the VBSA runs a number of state and national tournaments, and we appoint a Tournament Director (TD) for most of these events. The TD usually receives a modest payment in recognition of their time and effort.

The VBSA is now calling for expressions of interest from members who may wish to apply for this role for tournaments during 2019 and beyond. You would need moderate computer skills (data entry into online scoring systems), to be highly organised, to be punctual, to be well presented, to be prepared to make on-the-spot decisions in unforeseen circumstances, and to be comfortable speaking to a room full of players and referees.

Members who are interested should email the secretary at info@vbsa.org.au with full contact details and a brief outline of your skills and any relevant experience.
