Reventon Final

Chris Christofi and his Reventon Group dropped a huge bombshell on snooker this weekend with his announcements at the conclusion of the Reventon Finals held at the Academy. 

Huge increases in the prizes on offer, brand new tournaments with brand new concepts with huge benefits for the elite of our game right down to the grass roots at junior and new player levels.

The potential to attract overseas players next year is central to the concepts with the real possibility of reciprocal invitations for our players in their tournaments.

All this after a sensational weekend with the 10 best players nationwide competing for a $12,000 winner take all prize as well as two excellent and fun filled OneforSeven tournaments held concurrently just before the grand final on Sunday. In the words of Caroline Ruscitti, winner of the women's OneforSeven, "What a great time to be playing snooker". Johl Younger who won the men's event aslo commentated on the exciting things ahead in his thanks to Chris after the main event.

That event was of course the Grand Final between perrenial champion and V.B.S.A. life member, Steve Mifsud and young upstart and joker Ryan Thomerson.

It must be said that although Ryan seemed to get the rub of the green in more situations than Steve, his break building and especially his long potting was a joy to see and were the main contributors to his 6 frames to 3 victory.

He has grown into a fine young man and gentleman and will be an excellent Australian snooker ambassador as he takes up the challenge of a stint in England.

CONGRATULATIONS RYAN THOMERSON - 2017 REVENTON WINNER.
