Season 2 Pennant Team Entries
Team Entries for Season 2 of 2023 are now open and close on Sunday 25th June.  Please follow this LINK to access the online submission form. ALL entries must be lodged via the online form. 
The VBSA is developing a Mobile Scoring Application (APP) to augment and possibly replace the current paper-based scoresheet. The APP was trialed in Season 1 with two grades and will now proceed to Stage 2 in Season 2 and involve ALL grades and teams.  Scoresheets will still be required during the trial phase.  Captains will be contacted and provided with Instruction material ASAP before the season starts.  Your co-operation and patience in trialing the APP is appreciated.
The VBSA Board has determined that the provision of suppers will be compulsory unless exceptional circumstances are provided.  Please contact to advise any exceptional circumstances. 
If agreeable to ALL teams nominated in a C Snooker grade (CWS or CVS2), a 147 format will be played instead of the standard Pennant format.  Frames will be 21 minutes or frame completed (whichever comes first) with fouls resulting in no penalty points but ball in hand anywhere on the table.  All players will play each of their opponents one frame.  Overall result will be total points scored for your team to determine winner with a win to receive 2 matchpoints, a draw 1 point & loss 0 points.  Ladder position based on matchpoints then percentage of points for/against.  There is no guarantee that this format will proceed as it is based on responses from ALL teams.

AGM August 2023. Date TBC

To all members

On the back of Paul’s recent announcement, the VBSA wishes to advise our membership that at the 2023 AGM we will be seeking nominations for the following positions which will be coming vacant;

  •          President
  •          Vice President
  •          Secretary

It is imperative that these positions are filled as they will all be vacant as from the AGM and the VBSA cannot continue to function without people in these roles. Anyone wishing to nominate for these positions is invited to contact us with any questions you might have.

Please note that should only one person nominate for a position, they will be elected unopposed. Should multiple people nominate then subject to S54 of the VBSA Rules, each candidate will be given an opportunity to make a short speech in support of their nomination before a secret ballot is conducted.

We wish to take this opportunity to thank our office bearers and all our Board Members for their tireless work and dedication to our sport and look forward to welcoming some new faces to lead the VBSA forward into 2024 and beyond.

Thank you to everyone who has been so supportive during my years as VBSA President.

For personal reasons, I am advising the VBSA Membership that I will Not be standing for President at this year’s Annual General Meeting.

The VBSA has performed very well as the State Sporting Organisation, and the future provides great opportunities for all VBSA Members.

With gratitude, Paul Cosgriff

Ruby Roberts Victorian Women’s Billiards C/ship

. Venue - Cheltenham Billiards and Snooker Club. Starts - Sat 1st Jul

Hi all

I know that most people will know the name Walter Lindrum but does everyone actually 'know' the game that he mastered?

Whether you are a billiards enthusiast or casual observer please share this to your page or group you are involved in.

Billiards is my personal favourite cuesport and if you play snooker, 8 ball, blackball,  9 ball or any variation off those I can guarantee your game will only get better by learning billiards.

Thank you to the Cheltenham billiards and snooker club for hosting this year's state titles and thank you to the Brunswick club for hosting the 'Billiards for Women' workshop

Please help me promote the sport by sharing my post but also come along and support either or both of these events

Victorian Womens Snooker Championship 2023


The Victorian Women’s state titles were held last weekend at the North Brighton Club with a small but quality field. Julie Watson proved to be the standout player in retaining the title she first won last year. New Victorian Joey Tohme pushed her all the way and will no doubt prove to be an asset to the state in all forms of table sports. Shelly Ames and Kathy Howden made the event very competitive and thanks must also go to John van Zanden as the main referee and the very competent grand final official.

Message from the President

The VBSA Board and Members are very much saddened that Alec Spyrou has had to resign from the position of VBSA Secretary.

Alec has been a tireless worker for both the Board and Members, and his indefatigable energy, and considerable innovative ideas, are sorely missed.

All VBSA Members owe Alec a considerable vote of thanks, and all of us wish Alec every possible success with all of his endeavours, without holding a VBSA Board position.

Congratulations on all your achievements within our Sports, Alec. Very sincere gratitude from all VBSA Members, and all Board Members.
