NAUSORI Club player Jiten Prasad maintained his number one ranking after winning the Fiji Bitter National Snooker Rankings Championship in Suva last Sunday.

Prasad defeated Mosese Nawaqakuta 4-1 in the final.

In the semi-final Prasad downed club mate Deepak Jai Ram 3-1 while Nawaqakuta beat Nadi's Mahen Deo by the same score.

Billiards and Snooker Association of Fiji secretary Praneel Singh made the highest break with 56 points.

The highest break record of 94 points is held by New Zealand-based Deepak Lal Bala.

Singh said the focus would now shift to the inter-club championship which would be played at the Tavua Club on March 22.

"We are anticipating more than ten teams to participate in the inter-club championship," he said.

"The teams will play two singles matches, two doubles and one billiards match. The inter-club championship is being revived after many years.

"Also the Tavua Club will be hosting a national event after a long time."

Nausori Club, Merchants Club, Fiji Club, Defence Club, Viren's Kava, Bilolevu Club, Sigatoka Club, Nadi Sports Club, South Seas Club, Lautoka Club, Ba Central Club and Tavua Club will participate in the event.
