State of Origin Night 2015


Games on State of Origin nights 2015

With a late start to the Snooker season this year, it was necessary to schedule a game every Wednesday night.

Unfortunately this meant games on State of Origin night. No team will be forced to play on these nights however if it can be achieved it would be very helpful. Clubs unable to play on State of Origin nights should make other arrangements, there will be no penalty.

If there are issues making alternate arrangements, please contact the QB&SA by email, This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

Snooker Pennant


Apologies all, the file I updated was not the latest draw, the home and away draw is correct, the dates for the finals/presentation dinner were incorrect, new file is available below, cheers JohnO

Please note that the Snooker Pennant season is reverting to a full season, A Grade 21 Matches, B & C Grades 20 matches. The A Grade fixtures are correct as the data entry system shows with the exception that round 21 is to be played on the 16th Jul 2015 not the 15th PLEASE NOTE THIS MEANS 2 GAMES IN THE WEEK. While B & C Grades show 20 rounds, 1 is a bye and the round 20 of the draw was removed when the season was reduced by one round. Confusing as it may seem, simply put, for B Grade, round 10 will be replicated

into round 15 and for C Grade, round 10 will be replicated into round 13. Round 15 for B Grade and round 13 for C Grade are currently listed as BYES. The revised draw is available HERE

Chee, yet another grand tournament, well run and supported by the Matchroom patrons. Once again we had referees from north and south of Brisbane, a job well done, Des does it again. Thanks to Treston who was there refereeing every day of the tournament including the final, maybe he doesn't really have a home.

2015 QLD Under 15 Champion - Hayden Goode

It was a pleasure to turn up to Q Masters this morning to see 10 of QLD's young snooker players battle it out for the Under 15 Championship. 

When I left the Semi-Finals were getting underway with Defending champion Hayden Goode playing Jayden Dinga, while the other semi was between Bernie Buck and Kyle Thomson.

The experience for these young kids is invaluable, all dressed up in their vests and bow ties, with referees dressed in uniform and with 20 or so onlookers cheering them on.  Great signs for the future of this sport in QLD.

Congratulations to Bob Turpin, Phil Haycock, Pete Williams and others for the coaching and encouragement to get these young kids (one of them 8 years old) to line up today!  And the sportsmanship was excellent.  Well done Andrew at Q Masters for donating his venue as well as a few pool tables while the players were waiting to play. 

Thanks Paul, sorry to hijack your article but there are some more photos below......Congratulations to Hayden Goode winning his fourth consecutive U15 Qld Snooker Championships!! It was a great day and the future of snooker in Qld looks bright! Cheers Ed Dinga.
