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

It is with great sadness that we announce the untimely death of Mick Ashton from Nelson Bay Community Club. Mick passed unexpectedly Wednesday after a heart attack and will be sadly missed by the close Nelson Bay Community and the Newcastle Snooker membership of which he was a long time and well respected member. He was a fine competitor and always made time to have a chat and a laugh with everyone in the room after a match. Mick currently holds the highest break in the Over-50s competition – an impressive 62. The Committee will post funeral details here on the website as soon as they are known.
The NDBSA is pleased to announce the new Committee for 2019. After a bumpy start at the AGM where a Committee was unable to be formed the members dug deep and came up with a Committee at a subsequent meeting. The new Committee are keen to not only build on the work of the previous Committee but also contribute with new ideas and enthusiasm. The new members are:
President: Richard Evans (Kahibah Sports Club)
Vice President: Andrew Clarke (Wangi Workers Club)
Secretary/Treasurer: Bill Marshall (Nelson Bay Community Club)
