Inaugural snooker clubs tournament

THE Billiards and Snooker Association of Fiji will host the country's first ever Inter- Club Championship this weekend.

The competition is something similar to soccer's Inter-District Championship.

Association vice president Ravi Narayan said the event, which would be played at Tavua Club, is sponsored by Goundars Rentals.

He said the idea behind the tournament was to increase the participation of clubs and their players.

"We have 20 registered clubs and we are hoping they all turn up to this inaugural Inter-Club Championship," Narayan said.

"We want to bring all clubs together in a social event to compete and to enjoy."

He said the each club would have a team of seven players.

"We will have two singles games and two doubles games and one billiards match.

"Also the total prize pool for the tournament is $1200 which is one of the biggest amounts to compete for."

Narayan hopes all clubs will enter the competition.

"In the past when we had major tournaments, some clubs would come but the clubs from the North rarely did.

"We are hoping the Northern clubs will come down and compete in the tournament."

He said the format of the tournament made it easier for more players to participate.

"Usually, when we have singles competitions or snooker competitions, the players who are suited to playing doubles or billiards are left out.

"So, this time, we hope to increase partnership by allowing those players to have a chance to compete."
