Club Mulwala Snooker

By Yarrawonga Chronicle

The 2019 snooker season has drawn to a close with the Annual Director’s Challenge on Monday, November 25 the final event.

All snooker club members are very appreciative of the support the club receive from ClubMulwala so a night of social snooker and chat with Directors of the club is a great way to round out the year. After a number of close matches that belied the lack of match practice for annual participants, Baz Jackson and Nev Page fell over the line against Shane McBurnie and Ashley Nicholls to add their names to the shield. 

Thanks very much to everyone who made the effort to make this event a great time for all. 

Regular play on Monday, October 18 saw Daryl McKernan pump Nev Page in the final to take out the round robin event. 

Daryl backed up again on Wednesday, October 20 to contest the final with the resurgent Barry Jackson, who is showing a distinct return to form after recent eye surgery. 

Barry played very strongly to take the choccies over Daryl, who has great fresh form after only recently returning from another holiday break. 

Barry made it 3 wins out of 4 nights when he cleaned up again in the final social night on Wednesday November 7 by taking out Ashley Nicholls. 

Ashley would have to be very happy with how consistently he is playing but for Barry the season has finished too early. 

The ClubMulwala Snooker Club’s Christmas dinner and presentation night, where all of the season’s event winners will be recognised is being held on Wednesday, December 4. 

Thanks again from all players to Darren Thompson and his committee members for arranging such a great year of snooker, which all have enjoyed immensely.

A summary of the year’s outcomes will be presented in the final edition of the ClubMulwala Snooker Club results. 

As people can see on the ClubMulwala website and in its members newsletter, new members are always welcome or anyone who may like to give snooker a try. 

There are a variety of events held every Monday and Wednesday evening and there are plenty of opportunities for new players to join or come along to try the facilities out. 

The club have 2 excellently maintained full size tables available for competition, practice and visitor use, and a regularly updated handicapping system to ensure players from beginners to advanced level can compete equally. 

There are also plenty of experienced and skilled players who can help with advice and tips on how to improve your game or perhaps adapt it for those who have played pub or social pool in the past.  

Please contact the club on either 0497 062443 or 0418 361779 or visit on a Monday or Wednesday evening by 7.00pm if you would like to give snooker a try. 

Regular practice nights over the xmas/January break are being planned which presents a great opportunity for anyone thinking about joining to have a go with some of the members. 

Thanks also go to the Yarrawonga Chronicle for publishing the results throughout the year. 

Staff at the Chronicle have been very patient and professional with the club correspondent and the club are most grateful for the support of the club and sport.
