Performance Cup Introduction

Introduction:

The Performance Cup was introduced in 1999 and the trophy and is proudly sponsored by RACK EM UP BILLIARD CENTRE, LILYDALE.  The winner of the Performance Cup will be the best performing state during all of the singles age groups.

Jo Shrigley: 1999 Australian Junior Development Officer. .. “It was decided to start now, this year with our idea of “Team Trophy.” It’s purpose is to have team stats calculated to come up with the best performed state team, before finals. This would be to encourage players to keep trying their best till the end even if they knew they couldn’t make the finals themselves.”
