The YBSC Lance Pannell Club Snooker Championships were held on March 25th, 2018

A field of 24 players was allocated into 4 groups of 6 players.

Each group played a round robin format following “147 format rules”.

This meant each frame went for a maximum of 21 minutes, there were no points for fouls, white ball could be placed anywhere on table after a foul, and group placings were based on total accumulative points.

All groups were very competitive with most players a chance of obtaining one of the 4 qualifying spots per group going into the final rounds.

The last 16 was a straight knockout best of 3 and followed “Matchplay rules” (automatic foul and miss, no miss after 3rd attempt, frame over if more than 4 points in fouls are required).

The knockout stages had many highlights including Don Delamotte making it through to his first quarter finals as well as high breaks of 129, and 104 by Aaron and Ben.

Ben Foster finished the tournament the overall champion after convincing wins over James Mifsud and Aaron Mahoney in the final. Congratulations to Ben on his first YBSC Snooker club championship.

Thank you to all club members who supported this event, as well as those who assisted with the running of the tournament
