What a weekend of Eight Ball for the QLD Junior State Titles and Team Trials.
Firstly thank you to Norths Cue Sports for the use of your venue.Quality as always. Second thank you to everyone who helped running the age groups over the entire weekend.
Once again we had quality numbers in all age groups that shows Queensland Junior pool is strong and continues to grow.
Let me begin by saying the sportsmanship displayed by all competing and the parents was fantastic.
The competition got under way Saturday with the Under 23’s Under 18 Girls and Under 15 opens. Obviously with so many tables in play I didn’t see every match but those that I did get to see were exceptional quality.
Sunday saw the  Under 18 Opens  and the Under 12’s take to the tables. I swear the Under 12’s get smaller every year but the competition certainly doesn’t.

Before I post the results below again thank you to all those who take time out to travel long distances bringing Juniors  to these events. Without you QLD wouldn’t be as strong as we are in the junior ranks.
