Billiards Team Report 2013 - 13 April 2013
The 2012-13 season was a close repeat of the previous year. The team once again finished two places above bottom, but did have three victories as opposed to only one last term and there were also more close matches this time round. Relative newcomers James Turnham and Geoff Crook improved on their average points per game this year, they were also able to give more support to veterans Michael Ayres and Tony Wilson during the year hence the better results. James also appeared in the semi-final of the singles tournament which was a fine achievement. We welcomed one new member in John Wilson, who is showing great promise and got very close to chalking up his first victory.
Billiards is a very skilful game which if learnt well enhances any cue players ability. The table is usually up from the end of September until the end of April so if there are pool or snooker players in the village who want to give billiards a go please contact either the secretary or any Sports Club committee member.

The Billiards Team Of 2011 - 5 April 2011
James Turnham, Tony Wilson
and Michael Ayres (Ken White
was absent and Geoff Crook took the photo)
The Billiards Team (formerly the Men's Club) play in the sports pavilion every other Monday evening at 7.30 pm, the alternate Monday the match being away from home. It is affiliated to the Croughton & District Billiards League.
Having dropped out of the league for 12 months the team has been resurrected this year with two new players joining. The team for 2011 is Michael Ayres, Tony Wilson, Ken White, James Turnham and Geoff Crook.
Billiards may be perceived to be an ‘old man’s’ game and as such is not played often by younger players, brought up on a diet of pool and snooker. However, it is a very skilful game which if learnt well enhances any cue players ability.
Should anyone from the village be interested in playing or learning the game please do not hesitate to contact the secretary or any Sports club committee member.
The Secretary of the club is Michael Ayres (01295 768164)
