Congratulations to Belmont 16′ Sailing Club No.2 who defeated Wangi Worker’s Club in winning their first Tony Tamplin Shield. The final was on a knifes edge before Jay Firth sealed the win for the Belmont side. A big thanks to Belmont 16′ Sailing Club for hosting the Grand Final, the Committee for providing markers and both sides for playing the game while upholding the great sportsmanship that is synonymous with snooker. Well done to both teams and all the teams that participated throughout the year.

Congratulations to Wangi Worker’s Club and Belmont 16′ Sailing Club No.2 who are through to the 2017 Tony Tamplin Grand Final. Wangi Worker’s Club defeated Belmont 16′ Sailing Club No.1 and Belmont 16′ Sailing Club No.2 defeated the Minor Premiers – Mayfield Bowling Club in a cliff-hanger. The Grand Final will be held at Belmont 16′ Sailing Club 7pm on Wednesday the 8th November. Spectators welcome and good luck to both teams.
Both Belmont 16′ Sailing Club sides were successful this week over Kahibah Cannons and Cessnock Ex-Services Club No.1. That means that the top 4 teams have been decided with Minor Premiers Mayfield Bowling Club hosting Belmont 16′ Sailing Club No.2 and Wangi Worker’s Club hosting Belmont 16′ Sailing Club No1. Good luck to all teams.
Week 3 of the Tony Tamplin Finals see the Tennis Club Titans and the Toronto Worker’s No. 2 bow out after both having good seasons. Unfortunately the Draw has given the only 2 teams left in the final from the one club both with homes games. Belmont 16′ Sailing Club No.1 has graciously agreed to forego their home game advantage and play at Wangi so the finals can progress without delay. Good luck to all teams next week.
Due to some disagreements over the last couple of seasons the NDBSA Committee has determined that the order of play for the finals will be draw out of the hat and each match goes on as soon as any table becomes available just as in the group stages. As always home teams get the right to choose which tables the first 2 home side players play on. Home teams mark matches except when it’s a 3 table venue and in that instance the away player/s not playing should assist with marking. All five players from each team need to be in attendance at start times unless approval obtained from both captains. Player cigarette breaks are not to be taken mid-match.
Congratulations to Mayfield Bowling Club No.2 who have taken out the 2017 Tony Tamplin Minor Premiership after defeating Belmont 16′ Sailing Club No.2 in a play-off. That now finalises the top 8 positions and the finals campaign will begin for all 8 teams on Wednesday the 19th October.
