THE Billiard and Snooker Association of Fiji (BSAF) has launched its website in a bid to "cue" sports development in the country.

The initiative, headed by newly-elected BSAF president Riffat Bhatti, will allow the members to access information regarding the sport in Fiji more easily.

Bhatti said this was an initiative taken by them to move towards professionalism as the sport was trying to get away from its minor status.

"The website will contain the necessary information needed by the supporters and members of BSAF," he said.

"It would have the latest results, competition dates, rules and regulations and other necessary updates."

Bhatti said the website would help them reach out to the public and raise awareness of the sport.

He said they were keen to upload videos and documents to help interested parties learn and improve their skills.

"People can access information on BSAF by following the link http://www.fijisnooker.com/. We are thankful to Fiji Bitter, Coca-Cola and Carz and Carz Limited for their support.

"We are very excited with this initiative and we hope this will help us increase the popularity and improve the standard of billiard and snooker in the country."

Meanwhile father and son Yogen and Sahil Prasad won the A and B-grades respectively in the 2nd Fiji Bitter Nationals tournament yesterday.

Nadi's Yogen defeated Jiten Prasad of Nausori 4-3 while Sahil overcame Hazel Naidu of Labasa 3-0 to win the respective titles.

"This is the third time the father and son has won a tournament together and it's a double celebration for them as well after Nadi's win in the Fiji FACT," BSAF media liaison officer Vineel Nand said.
