Plans for two six reds tournament in 2014 calender

THE North West Billiards and Snooker Association will hold two six reds league competitions this year.

This is after the success of the inaugural competition last year.

Tony Cen, a wild card entrant pulled off a surprise by winning the title.

The first tournament will be held in early June while the second will be held at the end of November.

Association president Suresh Chauhan said players interested in participating in the tournaments would have to register in the weekly club league competition.

Chauhan said the top six players from the club competition would qualify for the final tournament.

"We have scrapped the wild card entry this year," he said.

"This is because it is unfair on the players who participate in the weekly competitions to earn the ranking points to qualify for the main event.

"We will also cater for interested players in the Southern Division.

"A tournament co-ordinator will be appointed to hold the weekly competitions at the Fiji Club.

Chauhan said a player would need to choose which club he wanted to represent and pay their affiliation fees to the club before the second week of March.

"A player cannot qualify from two clubs," he said.

"Any player who has not paid the affiliation fee will be disqualified.

" A minimum of 10 rounds of the weekly competition has to be played," Chauhan said.

The winner will receive a trophy, gold medal and $300.
