The QBSA has a long history of interclub competition, formally known as the Brisbane Districts Pennants, which allows our affiliate clubs to enter a team to verse other affiliate clubs in Team vs Team Snooker and Billiards Seasons. Teams play Home matches and also travel for Away matches at other clubs, in a round-robin format with the Top 4 teams going through to the finals. Normally we have a Snooker Season at the start of the year, followed by a Billiards Season.

Winning the Pennant for your club was a great honour and showed the calibre of players your club had. Moving up from the lower grades to try and play in A Grade was a common goal for players and inspired players to practice and improve. Pennant was also a great way to prepare for tournaments and players were always in regular match play on a week to week basis.

Unfortunately over the previous years, Pennant numbers have declined and a lot of the “Club Pride” has been lost. Our goal at the QBSA is to change that and bring back that “Club Pride” by trying new things to answer some of the reasons why players don’t play.

Our first change is a refresh of the name, now known as the QBSA Club Leagues, which will be solely run by the QBSA and we invite each club to provide feedback and suggestions throughout the year by contacting the QBSA Secretary.

In 2020, we will still hold the graded Snooker Season at the start of the year, followed by a new Zonal Handicap Snooker Season. More details to follow on this format.

Our Billiards Season will no longer be held in the second half of the year, but instead will play throughout the Snooker Seasons, with teams playing on average one match every four weeks on a Thursday night.

Details for each Season will be announced and available below closer to the start date. Please spread the word amongst your clubs and we look forward to seeing very competitive play across all Leagues during the year.

IMPORTANT NOTICE

REGARDING COVID 19 VIRUS EVENT RESTRICTIONS

IMPORTANT NOTICE

The Australian Billiards and Snooker Council today announced that all snooker and billiards events will be cancelled until the 30th June 2020.

As the ABSC is our governing body, and as we also have a duty of care for all members, officials, guests and spectators, the Queensland Billiards and Snooker Association will be following the ABSC recommendation by doing to the same to all of our events, effective immediately.

This includes stopping play of both our current Billiards and Snooker Club Leagues until further notice.

Should the situation improve, the Club Leagues may be resumed to their completion later in the year and may result in our Club Zone Snooker League not being run in 2020. We will assess the situation later in the year regarding this and then will work out any fees related to the Club Leagues.

This immediately impacts the following upcoming QBSA events:

  • 2020 QBSA Annual General Meeting
  • 2020 QLD Junior Development Session One
  • 2020 QLD Residents State Billiards Championships
  • 2020 QLD Women’s Residents Snooker Championships

If you have already paid entry into these events, please email secretary@qbsa.com.au with your bank details and we will issue a refund.

As we do not know how this situation will develop, we will not be guaranteeing that these events, or any future impacted events, will be rescheduled in 2020.

Our upcoming 2020 Annual General Meeting may still be able to go ahead via an online video conference. We will be emailing our current registered affiliate clubs shortly to discuss this option further. **UPDATED 19.03.2020 – The 2020 QBSA Annual General Meeting will be postponed until after the current restrictions have been lifted. All current QBSA Management Committee positions and QBSA Appointments will remain as they are and the new positions will be backdated to the original AGM date of the 26.03.2020.**

While we cannot enforce that our affiliate clubs also do the same regarding their events, we strongly recommend that they follow the directive from the ABSC and the QBSA regarding this matter. Please contact your local club for more information about club events moving forward.

The QBSA Management Committee will continue to monitor the situation and will provide any further updates to this situation, whether it be the restriction on events being removed or extended.

We appreciate your understanding and support during this time and we will hope you and your family remain safe.

If you have any questions, please send an email to secretary@qbsa.com.au.
