Tryouts for R.P. Billiards Team Slots

A series of tryouts for membership in the Philippine men’s billiards and snooker teams to the coming Asian Games starts Monday at the Philippine Sports Commission billiards center inside the Rizal Memorial Sports Complex.

Billiards and Snooker Council of the Philippines president Bong Ilagan yesterday announced that players who have finished in the top three standings in the high-level competitions in the as the World and Continental Championships, Asian Games and the gold medalists in last year’s Southeast Asian Games are eligible to participate in the three-week qualifying tournament.

In the case of Asian and Continental level competitions, those must have competitors coming from China, Japan and Korea, which according to Ilagan, are not only competing in the Asiad, but, likewise, considered as top in the region.
Up for grabs are slots in the men’s 8-ball, 9-ball, carom 3 cushion and snooker teams.

Except for former world pool champion Efren “Bata” Reyes and Rey Grandea, who are seeded in the English Billiards squad, no other players have been given outright berths.
Last year’s lady champion Rubilen Amit, Irisa Ranola and Mary Ann Basas have already also been chosen to be outright members of the women’s team.

Ilagan said invitations have already been sent to Reyes and Grandea, who will also be vying for seats in the 8-ball and 9-balls and snooker teams along with, among others, former world champion Ronnie Alcano and Alex Pagulayan, ex-world no. 1 Francisco “Django” Bustmante, former top money-maker Dennis Orcullo, Rodolfo Luat, Gandy Valle, Joven Bustamante, Lee Van Corteza, Antonio Gabica, Antonio Lining and Marlon Manalo.

Players under the BSCP wing of Sebastian Chua, according to former Project: Gintong Alay executive director, have also been invited through text messages as token sign of his faction’s desire to unify the warring local federation in the interest of the country’s participation in the 16th edition of the Games this November in Guangzhou, China.

“Lahat naman kami ay para sa interes ng bilyar at ng bansa, kaya iniimbitahan ko ang lahat na lunahok upang lalo nating mapalakas ang ating team at makapagdala ng karangalan sa bayan tulad ng ginawa naming noong SEA Games,” Ilagan said.

Reyes, who had been elevated to the national team playing assistant coach, will oversee the tryouts along with head mentor Boyet Asonto. Ilagan said the tryouts will finally be pushed through after Philippine Sports Commission chair Harry Angping approved his request to reopen the billiards and snooker center following its closure during the height of the BSCP leadership fiasco involving his and Chua’s groups.
