Billiards

The Billiards Section is one of the Club's oldest sport sections with two immaculately maintained full size snooker tables and a billiard marker. The Section organises Club tournaments, Member events, friendly matches with other clubs and overseas trips to reciprocal clubs. The Section also represents the Club as a member of Cuesports Singapore and participates in the National Snooker League.

Club tournaments come in various formats, with many trophies to compete for throughout the year, including:

  • Snooker Championship for the Concorde Trophy;
  • Billiards Championship for the Joe O'Conner Trophy;
  • Snooker Doubles Competition for the Andy A. Webster Memorial Trophy;
  • Volunteer Snooker Competition for the Francis Graham Trophy; and
  • Snooker Competitions for the Ian Brasalin Trophy, John Wilks Trophy and Resolution Trophy.
  •  

    Players of any standard are welcome to join the Billiards Section as a comprehensive handicap system is maintained to allow players to compete on an equal footing notwithstanding the differences in skill levels.
