FORMER Fiji number three Nitesh Chand took out the snooker league round one competition at the Lautoka Club on Friday.

Chand defeated Navneil Maharaj 1-0 in the final. In the semi-final, Chand downed Vinesh Prasad 2-0 while Maharaj beat veteran Suresh Chauhan 2-1

North West Billiards and Snooker Association tournament co-ordinator Raymond Reddy said only the registered club players would gain the ranking points.

Reddy said the league competition would be played at the South Seas Club in Lautoka every Wednesday.

"The competition will start at the Sigatoka Club, Nadi Sports Club, Tavua Club and Ba Central Club soon," he said.

"Ten rounds of competition are mandatory to select the top six players for the grand final event in June.

"The winner Nitesh and runner-up Navneil are not entitled for any points from the Lautoka Club competition because they have registered to represent the South Seas Club."

Chauhan collected three points in the competition. Prasad claimed two points while Reddy and Mohammed Aneez collected one point each.

A total of 12 players competed in the event.
