Posted on Thursday, July 12th, 2012

It was a busy 15 days at the ACBS Clubrooms from Friday 29 June through to Saturday 14 July.  We hosted the NZPA National Men’s and Women’s 9-Ball Championships, the NZBSA National B-Grade Snooker, NZBSA National Snooker, NZBSA National B-Grade Billiards and the NZBSA National Billiards Championships in that order.

Notable results were 14-year-old Camelia Cook being top qualifier in the Women’s 9-Ball event; A Kumar beat top seed Lee Rudolph in the Last 16 of the National B-Grade Snooker.  Kumar needed a snooker with the pink and black left in the third frame.  He got the snooker then went on to win the match on the black.  Kevin Zhang won the NZPA National Men’s 9-Ball title beating Nick Pera 11/9.  Vanny Ry beat Tony Van Wijk 3/0 to take out the NZBSA National B-Grade Snooker title.
