About VBSA Snooker & Billiards Competitions

The VB&SA (the Victorian Snooker & Billiards Association Incorporated), was established in 1927. Its charter is to run the Sport of Snooker & Billiards in Victoria. To run Tournaments and events as per our Calendar of Events, to operate week to week inter club competition in Billiards and Snooker.

Our week to week competition consists of:

The "Pennant Snooker" season is run over 18 weeks in the first half of the year on Monday and Wednesday nights. It starts around mid February and finals in July. The competition is graded from "A Premier" through to "D State".

The "Billiards and Willis Snooker" season is run over 14 weeks in the second half of the year on Monday and Wednesday nights. It starts around mid August and finals finish early December. There are two competitions run over this period - Premier Billiards A & B Grades and a snooker competition is graded from "A Willis" through to "D State".

Premier Teams consist of 6 players and 3 tables are required, Willis and Reserve grades have 4 players and 2 tables are required All matches are played off scratch, Snooker matches consist of 3 frames and Billiards matches are of 80 minutes duration.
