BUSINESSMAN Riffat Bhatti is keen to continue as president of the Billiards and Snooker Association of Fiji.

The Carz & Carz managing director took over the leadership role last year after Philip Gock resigned because of his ailing health despite having one more year in his term.

The three-year term of the current executives will end before the annual general meeting at the Lautoka Club today.

Bhatti said the nominations for the positions would be done from the floor.

He said they had achieved a lot last year.

"The number of tournaments has increased," Bhatti said.

"The league competitions were held in both the Western and Southern Divisions. Many new players were introduced to the sport.

"For me personally I want to serve the association better. That means getting a solid structure in place so that we can do better in the Oceania region.

"The sport needs more development work. We will be seeking the assistance of the Fiji Sports Commission to help us."

The positions that will be contested for during the annual general meeting include the president, three vice presidents, a secretary/treasurer and ten committee members.

Fiji number one Jiten Prasad and number two Praneel Singh will participate in the Oceania Snooker Championship at the Commercial Club Albury in New South Wales, Australia from March 29 to April 6.

Meanwhile the East versus West clash will start after the AGM.
