Season 2 Pennant Teams

Team Registration is now CLOSED for Season 2 of 2022.  Entries can be viewed HERE

The Season will commence on Monday 25th July.  Note that the season length will be determined by team numbers in each grade with the overriding focus being on having an even allotment of games i.e. having all teams play each other the same number of times.

Fixtures for both Monday and Wednesday Pennant have now been uploaded.  Every effort has been made to have equitable draws, but that is not always possible.

And a special mention to our new Club, Rack-Em-Up from Lilydale in C Willis North.  Their Villagers team used to play out of Masters.

Please contact the Score Registrar, Mark Dunn, on 0422 304 052 or e-mail scores@vbsa.org.au for any queries.

Message from the President

All VBSA Members should be aware that we are hosting the 2022 Lance Pannell Snooker (followed by the 2 Billiards Events & the State Snooker), commencing on Saturday 11/6. Entries for the first 2 Events close this Friday 3/6.

Your Board, and the Assistants, have applied themselves assiduously, to be able to host this First Ranking Tournament in Victoria for more than 2 years. It may seem intimidating to return to Tournament play after such a hiatus, however, the Lance Pannell Snooker provides the best possible format for this occasion.

Players who are Ranked in the top 64 on the Australian Rankings have an Entry Fee of $125, however, for the rest of us - Adult $60 - Women, Juniors and Pensioners (only) $35. This is the greatest “value for money” you could ever have in a Ranking Snooker Tournament.

With a full Field of 96 Entrants, every player is allocated into a Group of 6 players. You are then able to play 5 (Best of 3) Matches in your Round-Robin Group on Saturday 11/6. The 16 Groups are allocated to 5 different Venues on the Saturday, and the top 2 Group Qualifiers will play in a knockout format on the Sunday, and beyond.

Accordingly, every VBSA Member should utilize the opportunity, this week, to Enter the 2022 Lance Pannell Snooker. If you are a Member of a Snooker Team this week, ensure that every Member of your Team, who is able to attend on Saturday 11/6, has recognized this opportunity, and determined their Entry possibility.

Saturday (11/6) will provide a wealth of enjoyment for everyone. Thank you.

Regards

Paul Cosgriff, President

Great final between James Mifsud & Paul Thomerson

James came out the winner 4 / 2 James made breaks of 105 / 91 / 57 / 69 in the final

It was very difficult for Paul to win frames against such a high standard of play.

Well done to both players in getting to the final.

Thank you to Larry Eforgan and his referees over the weekend, did a great job as usual
