Neil's (almost) Success!

NEIL ROBERTSON has played superbly over the last 3 months, and has been extremely unlucky not to have snared a Major Title.

NEIL lost 8-10 in the Final of the World Snooker International Championship to JUDD TRUMP, and then lost in the Final of The Masters 6-10 to MARK SELBY after having played brilliantly earlier in the week.

In the UK Championship, NEIL lost 4-6 to the eventual Winner, MARK SELBY, in the Quarter-Finals. In the German Masters, NEIL lost 2-6 to the eventual Winner, ALLISTER CARTER, in the Semi-Final.

Making Finals, or losing to the Eventual Winner earlier, can only reinforce the great form that NEIL is showing. NEIL is up to Number 3 in the provisional World Rankings and will undoubtedly snare a Title very soon.

New Scoring system in 2013

A new scoring system will be introduced in 2013 (decided at the 2012 AGM by a majority vote). The new sytem will be very similar to the AFL with a winning team recieving 4 points, a draw will recieve 2 points to each team, and a losing team 0 points. Frames for and against will decide percentage. Matches will still be the same with each player playing 3 frames. How it works

2013 Pennant Snooker season

Team Entries for the 2013 Pennant Snooker season  ARE CLOSED

Please check that your team entry has been received and your team details are correct current team entries, please contact the Score Registrar if your team has not been entered or details are incorrect.

Unfortunately, there will be no A Reserve Snooker competition this season, it became a mathematical impossibility to create fair and reasonable fixtures for all grades. Have spent the last 48 hours in a vain attempt to create a set of fixtures that would work for the Monday night grades - A Reserve, B Premier, C Reserve and D Premier. In all the years I have been doing this I have never come across a more complex problem.
With A reserve only having 4 teams, it became the most logical solution to not run this grade. All nominated captains for these teams will be notified.
Alan Croft - VBSA Score Registrar.


The VBSA would like to thank everyone for their support, over 60 teams have been entered.

Fixtures are now available

First 100 break achievement

Congratulations to Vic Junior, Arthur Lin who conquered his first 100 snooker break on 29th Dec 2012 against Kathy Howden at Brunswick Club, no doubt influenced by 3yrs of great coaching by Bruce McPhee since Arthur was 11yrs old. Just the start of Arthur's bright snooker future.
