It is with great sadness that we learn about the closure of Cessnock Ex-Services Club. The Cessnock Ex-Services Snooker Club has been a fixture of Newcastle Snooker Billiards and Snooker competitions since 1963 winning their first of many shields in 1964 and the then President, Bert Agland described the Cessnock Ex-Services Snooker team as “one of the stronger teams”.
Since I first played in NDBSA Competitions in 1989 the Cessnock Ex-Services Club has continued to field consistently dominant snooker teams.
The NDBSA sends its’ deepest condolences to those effected by the closure, not only snooker players but staff and patrons.
The 2017 Newcastle Open has switched it’s venue to Belmont 16′ Sailing Club 18th November and Wangi Worker’s Club 18th & 19th November. Apologies for the very short notice.
