Star of Screen & Table

12 year old Queensland sensation, Jayden Dinga, is proving a big hit not just on the table but also on the little screen. 

Jayden is the current U12 national snooker champ, U12 national 8 ball champ, U12 QLD snooker champ, U15 QLD snooker champ, U15 QLD billiards champ and U18 QLD billiards runner up.  That's impressive in anyone's book.

A new TV Show "Little Big Shots" is coming to Channel 7 soon and Jayden is filming a segment for the show this week. He'll be doing some pool trick shots and talking about his snooker. What an amazing opportunity for this young man.  See https://vimeo.com/213039946 for a preview of the show.

I'm sure we'll be hearing a lot more from Jayden in the years ahead.

PS  And well done to our very own Kim Ivett for facilitating the above.  She's always on the lookout for a good story that will promote our game.  Great work Kim.

John McKay Australian U/21 Snooker and Billiards

The John McKay Australian U/21 Snooker and Billiards Championships held at the Brunswick club over the past few days, although spoiled by the very low number of entrants, left us in no doubt of who are the outstanding players of their generation. Cale Barratt must now be considered the leading light as the best Snooker and all round player with Josh Burns as the stand out Billiards player.

Neil Brown was on hand to referee the final of the Billiards, inevitably contested by Josh and Cale. The game was in the hands of Cale, the defending champion of 2016, until a timely 102 break by Josh got him over the line by 1 point.

Saturday was the time for the final stages of the Snooker tournament with the semi-finals won by Cale by 4 frames to 1 over Ivan Li from Queensland and Jayme White getting up by the same score line at the expense of Josh Burns.

The final was supervised by Jon Moss getting a final very early in his career as a referee and proving by his very good performance that the confidence shown in him is not misplaced.

The form shown by Cale throughout the tournament did not let him down for the final and although Jayme put up a valiant fight and is certainly a name for the future, it was Cale who ran out an easy winner taking the final by 5 frames to 1 and recording breaks of 46, 76 and 61 along the way.

Vic Junior C'ships Under 12, 15 and 18


Were held at the Brunswick club and was a great success. I was impressed with the quality of snooker and performance by all age groups showing that they will be our future stars. Jordy peart was the only female entrant, her ability in long potting won her frames and the Dempsey brothers were always potting balls even though they could hardly see over the table

Jon  it was your input that helped make it successful. Thanks to Tania for getting us up & going. Cheers to Dennis & Jon for being officials and keeping all In order
