THE postponed inter-club snooker championship will be played at the Tavua Club on Saturday.

The tournament was supposed to be held last month but had to be deferred after objections were raised about the format.

Billiards and Snooker Association secretary Raymond Reddy said the inter-club championship was being revived after a lapse of several years.

Raymond said each club would need to register five players.

"The entry fee is $100 per club," he said.

"A player must be a member of the club he represents. The number of teams will determine the format which could either be pool play or knockout basis.

"Repeats will only be allowed for doubles. That means if a player has competed in a billiards event then he may repeat only in doubles game and not in singles.

"It is compulsory to give the players one game."

Veteran Suresh Chauhan will spearhead Lautoka Club's campaign while in-form Nitesh Chand will guide the South Seas Club.

Mahendra Deo and Rimal Narayan will lead Nadi Sports Club.

Fiji Six Reds champion Viliame Umu will captain his Bilolevu Club.

Fiji number one Jiten Prasad will guide Nausori Club while Praneel Singh will lead Merchants Club.

Simla Snooker Club with Philip Gock will be no pushover.

Hosts Tavua will have the services of Salen Raju while Ismail Wali will guide Ba Central.

The winning team will receive $500.
