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

Help the Juniors

George Spiteri ran a raffle for a framed piece of the Goldfields winners. Thanks George a great cause!


A nice bloke from Qld by the name of Dan Johnston won the raffle. He was landing at Gold Coast airport when we actually drew the raffle. Will be getting the piece to his son who is based in Melbourne.

Exactly $1200 was raised, selling tickets to punters from as far as New Zealand!

2015 Vic Junior Championship

2015 Victorian Junior Championship was held at  Brunswick on Saturday 16th of May.

First of all I wish to thank all of the attending parents, for assisting with refereeing duties and a special thanks to our National coach Paul Thomerson.

Paul refereed from kick off through to 2:00pm and when not at the table he assisted the juniors’ with some very encouraging and thoughtful advice.

Thankyou must also go to the Brunswick Club for the use of their facilities.

Tania Ahmet did a great job as Tournament Director, the day ran very smoothly and the draw was very well organized. The round robin was best of 3 and the finals best of 5. It also was also greatly appreciated that Tania refereed during the day when required. Tania well done on a great job !!!

I wish to congratulate all of the junior participants on their behavior and was impressed by their shot selection, skill level and sportsmanship.

The future looks good for Victorian Snooker, although we still need to increase the numbers in our junior ranks.  

Jack Green deserves a special mention as he was the only Under 12 participant and stepped up to compete in the under 15 Tournament, he played vey well. For such a young man his long potting was impressive, he also has a very good demeanor and attitude while at the table. The same can be said of the older brother Cameron Green, they both look to become very talented senior players.

 2015 Victorian Junior Tournament Entrants:

 Matthew Curwood, Arthur Lin, Jake Thompson, Devlin Praeger, Marc Fridman, Cameron Green & Jack Green


 The U15 Finalist were Marc Fridman & Jake Thompson. The first frame went down to the wire being decided on the pink and black. Marc then stepped his game up in the second frame, with a break of 32, and went onto win the final 3 - 0.


 Congratulations Marc Fridamn - 2015 U15 Victorian State Champion  


 The U18 Finalist were Matthew Curwood & Arthur Lin. The first frame was a closely fought battle, until Arthur knocked in a solid 27 break to ensure the frame win. Arthur then stepped up his game to an awesome level, with a break of 100 in the second frame and to ensure the final win of 3 - 0 a very impressive break of 111 in the third frame. Well done Arthur. 


 Congratulations Arthur Lin - 2015 U18 Victorian State Champion


The Junior National Championship will be held in Albury in July  6th - 10th. Our Junior Victorian State Snooker side, depending upon availability, will consist of the following players. 

U12 Snooker - Jack Green  U15 Snooker - Marc Fridman U18 Snooker - Arthur Lin

Once again congratulations to all of the participants.
