Mayfield Bowling No.1 to meet Cessnock Comets in 6-Red Grand Final

Mayfield Bowling Club No.1 withstood a late fightback from the Kahibah Sports Cannons to book a place in the Grand Final. At one point Mayfield looked like they may secure a 3-0 result but Kahibah dug deep to take it to a decider. In the final game Kahibah can count themselves unlucky with the balls cruelly favouring Mayfield but at the end of the night the result reflected a strong performance by Mayfield who seemed to cope with the pressure a little better than Kahibah. Due to the NDBSA AGM being held at Kahibah Sports next week the Grand Final will be held on the 7th of March at a venue to be determined. Good luck to both finalists.

6-Red finals update

Last night Minor Premiers Cessnock Comets defeated Mayfield Bowling Club No.1 without their in-form No.1 Michael North, to advance to the Grand Final. In  the minor semi Kahibah Sports Canons defeated the Mayfield Bowling Club No.2 in a hard fought battle.

 

Next Wednesday Mayfield Bowling Club No.1 will play Kahibah Sports Club Cannons to see who will progress to the Grand Final and meet the Cessnock Comets.

6-Red final 4 placings

The 4-way play-off for third position in the 6-Red Summer Competition was determined on Wednesday night with Mayfield Bowling Club No.2 defeating the Tennis Club and Kahibah Sports Cannons defeating Kahibah Sports Kings. Both matches went to the 5th game and all matches were of the highest standard on Wangi Workers Club’s beautiful tables. Thank you to Ian Callaghan for attending as Committee rep and marking.

This result means that next Wednesday the 14th February will be the following matches

Mayfield No.1 vs Cessnock – Wangi 7pm Winner through to Grand Final

Mayfield No.2 vs Kahibah Sports Cannons – Belmont 7pm Winner plays loser of above match

Good Luck to all teams

NSW State Billiards Minors at CC Leagues & $0 entry!

The 2018 Minor Billiards will be played at Central Coast Leagues club on Saturday 17 and Sunday 18 February.

This year you are playing for the honour and glory of a state title rather than for prize money and consequently entry cost is $0. You will still be required to join the State Association to play in a state title event.

We encourage all Billiards players, those of whom are eligable to play the State Minors and hope to get a big turn out on the beautiful Central Coast…if you lose you can still go for a swim!

The format is round robin so you are guaranteed at least 3 and possibly 4 matches regardless of the results. It’s a fun day of competition with other ladies and gentlemen of billiards. As with all Billiards events it is a welcoming crowd who enjoy each others company.

Attached is the BSANSW Calendar for 2018, simply click the event details for the entry form.

While you are looking at the Calendar you will notice 2 brand new State titles in the latter half of the year. These are short format frames of 150 up and we will be offering both a Majors and Minors event. If you have previously won any State Billiards title you will be ineligible to enter a Minor event, but can of course contest the Major billiards in either or both formats.

Dates for Lightning Billiards events at Hornsby are now also posted to the BSANSW calendar.

For Billiards aficionados please also note the dates for the Ron Shepherd Billiards in the Illawarra on the 19th and 29th of May 2018. This is an open non-ranking handicapped event run by Sandy Batellic and has proven to be very popular over the years. Many of the Sydney based players make a road trip of this event annually and rave about it.

Finally we are pleased to announce that we have confirmed dates and venue for the Sydney Open Billiards, the World Ranking premier event on the NSW Calendar.

This year the Club Marconi Sydney Open Billiards will be played at, Club Marconi on Friday Saturday and Sunday 6th 7th and 8th April. The field will include World Number 1 Peter Gilchrist and a number of other overseas superstars. This event is open to players from anywhere in the world regardless of affiliations and is a unique opportunity to see and play against the best in the sport right in your own backyard.
