The Thunder is back

Join us for a unique evening with Neil Robertson, World Champion, and Triple Crown Winner — the finest snooker talent ever produced by Australia. Witness the elite play that has placed Neil at the top of the game for over 15 years.


Beyond the green baize, there's plenty to enjoy. A variety of food and drinks available throughout the evening as well as raffle prizes, and opportunities to meet Neil in person for valid ticket holders.


Act quickly to secure your spot for a chance to challenge Neil — a rare opportunity to share the table with one of the sport's greats. With only six playing experience draw spots to be claimed, it’s an opportunity as rare as a maximum break. Purchase your playing experience draw with your tickets at the VBSA store  


Time is ticking, and availability is limited. Don’t miss your chance to spend an evening with our Melbourne-grown snooker champion.


Buy tickets at the VBSA shop here

Vale Geoff Druce

Australian Billiards has lost an unsung servant of billiards and snooker with the death in Melbourne of RACV Club billiard room manager Geoff Druce at the age of 71. Geoff joined the RACV Club in his twenties and clocked up nearly 50 years service to that Club, the great majority of that time as supervisor or manager of the billiard room and bar.

Geoff took great pride in maintaining the eight tables at the RACV Club, firstly at their 123 Queen St premises and since 2005 at the Club's 501 Bourke St premises. During his career he brushed, padded and ironed well over 10,000 billiard tables, always at an unhurried pace, never rushing. His secret sauce was to iron one side of a table, then re-heat the iron so that it was equally hot for both sides of the table. While the iron re-heated he would start brushing and padding the next table. During major tournaments including the 1998 and 2019 World Billiards Championships, Geoff ensured that the tables were prepared to the highest standard before each day's play.

Geoff knew all the regular members and visitors to the billiard room, and greeted them by name, in the early days as "Mr. So-and-so" and more recently by their first name. Always courteous and considerate, it was always a great pleasure to see Geoff's smiling face behind the bar or in the billiard room. He will be greatly missed.

Geoffrey Francis Druce, billiard room manager, born 15/02/1952, died 3/10/2023
