Snooker is now officially a recognised sporting code in the Ugu region.
Last week, a meeting was held at Margate Country Club to elect a committee to steer the sport of snooker in the right direction. The nomination of Selvin Moodley for the position of chairman was proposed and was unanimously accepted.
The other committee members are deputy chairman Basil King, secretary Siyanda Nkonyeni, tournament/league coordinator JJ Kruger, public relations officer Flip Fourie and treasurer Marinda Muller.
Now that the Ugu District is affiliated to the South African Snooker and Billiards Association, players from the South Coast can show their talent by their representation at all national events.
Inaugural chairman Moodley is confident that with determination, coaching and discipline, the region will soon have a South African champion.
The league gets underway on 17 February and will consist of a Premier League and an A League. Time has also been set aside for a Junior League.
Apart from the league, players will have their hands full, especially with their cues as there will be many tournaments to play throughout the season.
