Season coming to a close, have your say

Season 2021/2022 Summary How did it go?

“As another season draws to a close, here’s a short recap, followed by an opportunity to have your say on the way forward”.

After the disruption of the last couple of years the Inter-District Yorkshire Snooker League started a little later than normal on January 22nd, At the time of writing the leagues are coming to a successful close with Sheffield 2 and Leeds 2 heading their respective divisions.

The cup competitions started with the U16’s, which was a relatively low key affair with only 8 entries. Stan Moody emerging as the winner beating James Pears 2-0 in the final.

At the end of February, it was the turn of the U19’s, a healthy field of 17 contesting this one, and it was Liam Pullen who put in a stellar performance in the final beating Samuel Lee-Stevens with breaks of 72,107 and 108.

The Snooker Championship started in March and over the 2 qualifying days attracted 75 entries, up slightly on last time.
The final between Gary Milne and Malcolm Bilclough is scheduled for Friday 19th August at the NSC.

In May we had the Snooker Pairs competition, a bumper field of 31 pairs (more than twice the entry last time), meaning that the semi’s and final had to be held over until July. New professional Sanderson Lam and partner Daniel Womersley defeated Tony Massey and Liam Pullen in the high quality final which included breaks of 134 from Lam and 128 from Pullen.

The planned U21 competition was unfortunately cancelled due to a repeated clash of dates.

The final competition of the season was the Snooker Handicap, again entries were up this time with 64 (including 11 re-entries) as opposed to 48 last time the competition was run. The task of balancing out handicaps from several different leagues is never easy. Throw in a handful of ex pros and top amateurs who have recently returned to the game, the rising junior stars who are improving at a steady rate plus a few players who don’t actively play in a league and it’s an almost impossible job which thankfully most players appreciate. In the end it was Bradford’s Adam Tipper who largely ran under the radar to take the title beating Geoff Lord in a close fought final.

A massive well done to all involved and we hope you all come and support the boys playing in the Championship final followed by the presentation evening.

So as we start to plan for next season now is your chance to have your say.
