Neil Robertson now ranked 2 in World

Congratulations to Victoria's very own World Champion Neil Robertson winning the Bank of Beijing China Open defeating Mark Selby 10-6 on 31st March. It's Robertson's first ranking title since the 2010 World Open and he's the tenth different winner in ten ranking events so far this season. Excellent work by Neil and we wish him well in the coming World Championship at the Crucible.

Victorian Under 21 Snooker
the Victorian Under 21's was played on sunday at the AK8 Billiards lounge. Thankyou to Kevin Xu and his staff, a great venue.
After the round robin matches 4 players progressed to the Semis seeded as follows 
1. Charlie Chafe
2. Ryan Thomerson 
3. Adam Bleumink
4. Arthur Lin
Ryan Played Adam & quickly went into a 2 frame lead ,Adam won the 3rd frame to go 2/1 the fourth frame was a scrappy game which Ryan managed to win on the colours. to win the match 3/1 & go into the final
on the other table Charlie was off to a shaky start which gave young Arthur Lin confidence , And saw Arthur making breaks of 40 , 30 to go into a 2/0 lead 
though Charlie thought hard in the 3rd frame Arthur was not missing many shots & ended up taking the frame & match with a good 50 break & progressing into his first u21s Vic final 
 
The final was a one sided affair with Arthur finding the AK8 Star table very different to the tables played on earlier ,Ryan on the other hand quickly got into his stride with a 70 break in the first 43 in the second & anther 45 in the third frame to take the Title 3/0
 

Ryan Thomerson Has now won all Victorian titles u12.s, u15,s u18,s u21,s & he now has his sights on the mens to complete all the Victorian titles !

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
