The 2013 State Billiards Championship was held at the LWC on June 1st & 2nd with 10 of the top Billiards players from across the State coming together with defending champion from Hobart Les Higgins starting a firm favourite

Saturday saw the round robin section with the players being divided into 2 groups, group A saw Les Higgins finish on top with the North's Peter Donati finsihing second, group B was toped by the North's David Bates and Graeme Pickett

Heading into Saturday night the semi finals were held with Les Higgins v Graeme Pickett and David Bates v Peter Donati, both semi finals were played at a high level especially after players playing a solid day of billiards in the round robin section, Hobart's Les Higgins recorded the highest break of the tournament with a 150 break in the first session of the semi final, but this was not enough to hold out the North's Graeme Pickett, the other semi Final saw Peter Donati make his first State final be defeating last year's runner-up David Bates

Sunday morning saw the final take place and after 90 minutes of play Graeme had gone out to a handy 100 point lead, after the interval Graeme managed to stretch his lead over Peter, making a nice 99 break in the second session of play to take his 5th State Billiards Title

John Williams Shield 2013

The North have effortlessly won the 2013 John Williams Shield played at the Ulverstone RSC on June 15th & 16th between the North, South and North-West regions.

The Northern team started the day slowly winning only 1 match from the first 3 matches played, but then went on to win 17 matches straight during the Saturday to actually secure the team win on day one of the tournament; a rare feat under the new format.

Sunday saw the remaining matches being played with the North ending up with 27 matches won from their 32 matches played over the weekend, a great team effort only losing 5 matches for the weekend, the North-West ended up with 13 matches won from 32 and the South 8 from 32

Best players for the North were John Fraser with 4 matches won from 4 played and the un-official high break of the tournament of 38 (this was because the North had already won when John made the break) other players to win 4 from 4 were Keith Coomber and a high break of 37 for cues 1-2 and Andrew Saltmarsh 4 from 4 and a high break of 32 for cues 3-4.

Doug Salter Shield 2013

The 2013 Doug Salter Shield is to be held at the Claremont RSL on May 4th and 5th, starting at 11.00am on the Saturday with players to be present by 10.45am

The North while not being able to send their strongest team, mainly due to the timing of the event with our 2013 season yet to start and our billiard season being finsihed for over a month will no doubt be trying to bring the shield home and only being the 50up format of the game anything can happen

The North will be lead by David Bates, Adrian White, Keith Coomber, Barry Glover, Wayne Purdon and Alan Armitage
