Rental company boosts NorthWest campaign

Maciu Malo
Thursday, January 23, 2014

COASTAL Rental has boosted the NorthWest Billiards and Snooker Association campaign this year for reviving the "to and fro" five single snooker, one billiards and two double snooker competitions.

Association president Suresh Chauhan said the competition suffered a slow death after the government legislation to stop cigarette companies sponsoring sporting teams and tournaments few years ago.

He said the tournament which was once sponsored by Rothmans would be relived with the sponsorship of Coastal Rental.

"This competition will start next month and this is a good development ground for our players," said Chauhan.

"This competition will enhance skills and will also introduce new players.

"We are grateful to our new sponsor for their commitment in the development of the sport."

Chauhan said he was impressed with the performance of the West team against the East in last weekend's annual Shop and Save snooker clash.

"We have now forgotten about the win and are focusing on another season, improving from where we left off last year.

"We will also work on various development proposals to further promote the game at the grassroots."

The snooker league tournament will kick off next month.
