ALL office bearers of the Southern Division Billiard and Snooker Association (SDBSA) retained their positions at the annual general meeting yesterday.
Ravi Narayan was re-elected president while Praneel Singh and Rohit Nand retained their seats as the secretary and treasurer at the meeting at Merchant's Club in Suva.
Committee members Viliame Umu, Deepak J Ram, Mohammed Shameem, Ravi Naidu and Francis Ram also retained their positions.
Narayan said they had a good turnout at the meeting and managed to discuss some good ideas. "One thing that was agreed on was that this year's winner of the SDBSA Player of the Year award would have to compete at all ranking tournaments of the association," he said.
"We have had instances in the past where players who win the award don't compete in all the events but end up being the top player at the end of the year.
"We have five open singles ranking tournaments this year and the player who competes in all and is the number one player in the association by the end of the year, would win the award."
He said they were also keen on starting a league competition.
"The SDBSA League would run for about 20 weeks and in this competition each player would have to play every other player in the association.
"So if I was to compete in the league, I would have to play a round-robin match with every player in the competition.
"It's not like the other league competitions which are played in a tournament style concept."
Meanwhile, the association hosted a fun two-player tournament as a buildup to the East versus West Championship which will be played next weekend in Lautoka.
Competition was in progresswhen this edition went to press.
