David Collins Snooker & Billiards open

David Collins championship was a great event.

 

Congratulations to Aaron Mahoney for coming up with these events, the ever present and helpful. George Hoy, Bassam Elbelli (the photographer and with his lovely wife as the Master Chef???? duo), David Collins offering hours of billiards tuition for free and the rest of the team who helped make this event happen. 

Special mention to Kevin Stone who  was kind enough to sponsor it.

 It was a real community effort.

 Without this collective effort these events would not happen.

 Let's encourage the players who took part to give back by helping with the next one ????

 If you guys ever need help let me know.

 I might be suggesting this particular event at Hampton. ????

Thank You

Alec Spyrou

2023 Victorian State Snooker Championship

2023 Victorian State Snooker Championship

Congratulations James Mifsud

He has won his 4th Victorian State Championship in a row to become only the second person to do it

he has now got 6 in total he had to overcome his champion Brother Steve to achaive it, it was a great match again

he came from behind 2-3 down as he had done in his previous two matches against Sumit Kapoor  2-1 down

to win when he needed 2 snookers with only one red left then again against Steve Hanna in the semi who is the inform player this season 

he was 2-3 down he went on to show that he will never give up, he has without a doubt  become a legend of our sport.

The final was a great potting match with Steve making the top break of the tournament

with a 100 clearance to go 3-2 up then James came back with a 85 clearance in the next frame to level the scores 

The last frame was very close with James making a 41 to take the match  

We are very lucky to be able to watch such high class snooker over the years from James and his Brother Steve and I am sure there will be more to come.

Ruby Roberts Victorian Women’s Billiards C/ship

The Victorian women gave a heartwarmiing response to the call to enter this tournament and competition was that much improved because of it. Nine talented players with another unfortunately forced to exclude herself due to illness, came together at the Cheltenham Billiards and Snooker Club, now the home of women's competition in Victoria, for what proved to be an enjoyable as well as competitive day. All four tables at the club were at competion standard and thanks must go to Jon Loughron for the care and attention he gave both to the tables and the running of the day, this also included lunch for all the contestants and the referees. Julie Watson proved unstoppable in retaining her title but the form of Shelly Ames, appropriately mentioned by Julie in her victory speech, is something to watch for in future tournaments. Mention must also be made of Mia Newman who at 14 is showing some real promise and certainly deserved her place in the semi finals. Referees in attendance were Jon Moss, John van Zanden, Balraj Dhaliwal and Paul Cosgriff who took charge of the final. This was timed at 75 minutes with a score to Julie of 211 to Shelly's 105.
