Chand back to winning ways, eyes top 10

FORMER Fiji number three Nitesh Chand is eyeing a return to the top 10 after winning the Fiji Gas North West Snooker Championship at the Lautoka Club last Saturday.

Chand defeated Simon Reddy 3-0 in the final. In the semi-final, Chand beat Isireli Kaci while Reddy overcame last year's champion Mahen Deo. Chand said it was good to get back to winning ways and that his next target was the National Rankings Championship.

"My form wasn't up to par in the last two seasons," the South Seas Club player said.

"I slipped out of the top 10 but this win is a morale-booster. I have set out my training schedule and hope to lift my standard with the national tournament coming up."

Meanwhile, the North West Billiards and Snooker Association will revive the inter club league competition after a lapse of several years.

The competition will be played on a home and away basis.

The teams will consist of five players who will participate in the three snooker events, two doubles matches, one six reds match and a billiards fixture during each round.

The association will subsidise the teams' travelling allowances.

Tavua Club, Ba Central Club, Lautoka Club, South Seas Club, Nadi Sports Club and Sigatoka Club are eligible to participate in the competition.
