MORE than 40 players are expected to compete in the Southern Division Billiards and Snooker Association open tournament today and tomorrow at the Nausori Club.

Association president Riffat Bhatti said response from the players had been overwhelming and they were looking forward the competition.

"The top ranked players in the country are confirmed to compete and some former stars are also confirmed," he said.

"The upcoming players would be given a chance to play against the top ranked players so that they can get some exposure."

Bhatti thanked David Ratnam for stepping up to sponsor the tournament and said the winner would walk away with $200 prizemoney.

"There are also cash prizes for the runner up and the semi-finalists thanks to David Ratnam."

Carz and Carz would also provide special entertainment during the competition.

Meanwhile, Bhatti said the association would have a special general meeting to elect new officials of the association.

"The president stepped down a few months ago and I took over and I want to have elections so that a new committee can run the association and work towards progress."

Competition starts today at 10am at the Nausori Club.
