Snooker & Billiards Shield Menus

Grant Schubert

Newcastle Snooker Website

Over the last 12 months the website theme that Newcastle Snooker used has become more problematic on mobile devices. As such the Committee has requested I investigate a better solution. Over the next couple of weeks I will be trialling different website themes in an attempted to find the best mobile friendly option. I will attempt to keep all data accessible for player during this transition, however the look and responsiveness may be affected whilst differing options are explored.

Regards,

Grant Schubert

Wangi Workers Club No.1 – 2019 Tony Tamplin Winners.

The Tony Tamplin Grand Final was won by Wangi Workers No.1 team in a hard fought close match over Tennis Club.

Kenny Plows and Ray Loveridge got Wangi away to a great start with hard fought wins over Ramsey Vong and Mark Toward
Tennis fought back with a strong win by Jake Davis over Greg King with Jake showing a lot of skill with a break of 27

John Duchatel and Ben Cooper on table 2 and Neil Fatania and Kevin Parry on Table 3 battled to 1 frame all and a comeback by Tennis looked possible
John Duchatel broke Tennis hearts potting the double black after the third frame was tied.

The match was played in excellent spirits and at a high standard
