Victorian Billiards Championship

At the half-way mark of the 2022 Victorian State Billiards final (after a 2-hour session), Steve Mifsud (36 unf) 528 (75, 191, 151) leads David Cosgriff 417 (53, 77, 80).  After David’s 80 break, he led by over 60 but Steve compiled his 151 to regain the lead

The 2nd Session of the Victorian State Billiards had Steve Mifsud showing the benefit of his dedicated practice, by compiling 5 centuries in the 2 hours, and holding the table for the vast majority of the time.  Final score Steve 1494 (75 101 151 148 183 105 118 77 170) defeated David 671 (53 77 80).

Congratulations Steve! 2022 Victorian State Billiards Champion.

David Cosgriff has performed very well all week and made Steve feel pressure in the 1st session. Very well done, David.

Many thanks to Larry Eforgan for all his efforts all week, and all the Referees who contributed last weekend.  We are especially grateful to Anuj Rathee, who Refereed extremely well in the Final (after a heavy workload all week), and came in tonight on very short notice, after Neil Brown became unwell.  We hope that Neil has recovered full health by the weekend.

Vale Trevor Lowther


There will be a memorial service (which we believe has been organised by his friends) and everyone is welcome to attend. 

Date: Friday, 8 July 2022

Time: 2pm

Place: Chapel, Old Cheese Factory, 34 Homestead Road, Berwick.


The VBSA Board and members are saddened to hear of the sudden passing of Trevor Lowther from North Brighton Club.  Trevor passed away on 24th June, only one day shy of his 58th birthday.

Ken Sincock commented "Despite being unwell and with only an hour or so notice Trevor gladly played for Crown Jewells in our last game against Hit 3 weeks ago after 2 late cancellations. That was typical of Trevor, he would do anything to help the team and loved cue sports like no-one else"

Our thoughts are with the Lowther family.  Funeral details will be provided as they come to hand.

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 for any queries.

2022 Australian National Billiards

Victoria’s STEVE MIFSUD is the 2022 Australian National Billiards Champion after defeating MICHAEL PEARSON in the Final, at the Yarraville Academy, today.

STEVE won the Final by 1545-832, and is a deserving Winner of the “Oswald Sealy Perpetual Trophy”. 

Over the course of the Championship, STEVE made breaks of 255, 249, 237, 231, 229, 216, 207, 202 and made 13 more century breaks.

Fellow century-break makers were (Runner-Up) Michael Pearson (from NSW), (Semi-Finalist) Rodney Nelson, James Mifsud, John Schenck and (Semi-Finalist) Joshua Burns (from Tasmania).

The VBSA and the ABSC are extremely grateful to all the players, especially those who travelled from Interstate.

The Yarraville Club provided magnificent facilities, and tremendous support for our Sports over these last 11 days.

We are extremely appreciative of all our Sponsors, and the manner in which they ensure that our Sports continue to grow, and expand into our Communities.

The “live-stream” of the Final is still available on CueballTV on YouTube.

2022 Pacific International Billiards

The Final of this year’s Pacific International Billiards, at the Yarraville Club’s Academy, provided one of the most amazing matches in living memory!

Presented in the photograph: Sourav Kothari (L), from India, was playing Rob Hall (R), from England, and the Final was Refereed by Garvin Gray (C), from Queensland.

The Final required the Winner to amass 1500 points, and there was a significant interval when the “leading player” had passed 750 total points, and concluded their “visit” to the table.

In this Championship Final, having amassed 4 century breaks by the Interval, Sourav was leading by 780 points to 223! In most sports, this would be considered an insurmountable lead, but with World-Class Billiards players  “No Lead Is Safe”!

After the interval, Rob Hall produced breaks of 177, 78 and 391 (Highest Break of the Championship!) to not only catch Sourav, but to “storm” to a slender lead!

 Not to be outdone, Sourav provided his 5th Century-break of the Final, and was able to regain the lead, with the finishing line in sight.

With Rob trailing 1321 to 1422, Sourav was able to produce a break of “78 unfinished” to achieve the win, and be crowned “Champion”!

Rob Hall displayed tremendous fighting qualities to reach the lead in the latter stages of the contest. And Sourav showed incredible steadiness under pressure to finish out with a break of 78!

 All who were fortunate to witness this “Titanic Struggle”, will long remember an enthralling contest between two Great Champions!

Congratulations to Sourav Kothari

Replay of the Final is still available on CueballTV on YouTube

After the round robin stages, we were left with:-

The U18’s final contested between Sean Dempsey and Ciaran Dempsey which saw Sean the eventual winner.

The U16’s final contested between Ciaran Dempsey and Dion Romanos with Ciaran lifting the trophy.

The U12’s final where Advay Joshi defeated Mia Macheda.

It was a long day for all of the competitors but they all remained enthusiastic throughout the day and displayed excellent sporting qualities.


Congratulations to: -

Sean Dempsey (2022 Victorian Under 18 Champion)

Ciaran Dempsey (2022 Victorian Under 16 Champion)

Advay Joshi (2022 Victorian Under 12 Champion)


Well done to all competitors on the day. We hope to see you all back next year.

The tournament director was Tony Fridman who was ably assisted by Lynda and Marc Fridman – a real family affair.

Thanks Tony for an excellent tournament and also for all the work you did to get so many entries at short notice.
