KENT SNOOKER VETERANS - 3.10.21

Victoria Snooker Centre, Tunbridge Wells

Winner: Raj Puri
Runner-up: Adrian Mitchell

 

We had 11 entries for the Veterans tournament at Victoria Club in Tunbridge Wells. As young Bertie Gill was unable to play in the Under 21s we gave him the opportunity to play in the Veterans competition. This meant we could split them all the players into two groups of six for a round-robin tournament.


Each match in the group stage was just one frame with the top two in each group, based on frames won, going through to the semi-finals. Adrian Mitchell won group 1 winning 4 of his 5 frames. Raj Puri also won 4 of his 5 but had lost his frame against Adrian so he was group runner-up.


Group 2 finished unbelievably with 5 players all winning 3 frames and as we hadn't been recording the frame scores the only way to split them was to have a knockout tournament between the 5, again just one frame matches. Clive Underhill won his first frame but then lost to Doug Vingoe. Mark Britton beat Tony Curtis so the group was finally decided with Mark going through to play Raj and Doug playing Adrian in the semi-finals.


Raj and Adrian both won 2-0 to setup a rematch in the final and this time it was Raj who prevailed winning 2-0 and the £60 first prize. Congratulations Raj on successfully defending the title after holding on to it for the extra year during the pandemic.
