Newcomer Jaco Buitendag (pictured) proved that extra practice pays off when he caused a big upset in the Ugu Snooker League at Margate Country Club last week.

Buitendag took out last year’s top seed and Player of the Year Siyanda Nkonyeni 4 frames to 0 in their Premier League match.

The A League saw a much anticipated match between husband and wife. Unfortunately, this husband did not go by the saying ‘ladies first’ as Hendrik van Tonder made sure he was first by beating his wife Nellie 3 frames to 1. Nellie can’t wait to take him down when they meet again.

Last week’s results:

Premier League: JJ Kruger 3 – Shawn Chetty 1, Eddie Redlinguys 2 – Kuben Govender 2, Selvin Moodley 4 – Yega Katharian 0, Jaco Buitendag 4 – Siyanda Nkonyeni.
A League results: Basil King 3 – Zidan Mavundla 1, Flip Fourie 4 – Bobby Govender 0, Hendrik van Tonder 3 – Nellie van Tonder 1.

This week’s fixtures:

Premier League: JJ Kruger v Kuben Govender, Eddie Redlinguys v Jaco Buitendag, Selvin Moodley v Shawn Chetty, Siyanda Nkonyeni v Yega Katharian.
A League: Flip Fourie v Zidan Mavundla, Collin Chetty v Nellie van Tonder, Hendrik van Tonder v Bobby Govender.
