thumbTERRY TEEMAN SHORTLISTED FOR PRESTIGIOUS BBC AWARD
June 7, 2024
Woking Snooker Centre player, referee, tournament director and website guru, TERRY TEEMAN, has been nominated and selected for the finals for the BBC Radio's 2024 MAKE A DIFFERENCE AWARDS 'BRAVERY category. Please copy and paste this link for full details:https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/articles/3M4QTQxVtH3z7nbyZjDDS4p/make-a-difference-awards. To be on the shortlist for such a distinguished honour is a fantastic achievement. TERRY's story is one of 'zero to hero'. A long history of physical and mental health issues found TERRY in the depths of despair. Due to homelessness he slept on park benches during a very bleak period. His love of cricket and particularly snooker gave him a glimmer of future hope. He became a cricket umpire and arrived back to the Snooker Centre from which a positive road is being taken. Never short of ideas or it's fair to say, opinions TERRY set up the snookerz website promoting the game at grass roots level. He then began organising tournaments and attracted many top players to play in them. Check out his website 'www.snookerz.co.uk' for details of his August competition. Going from strength to strength Snookerz now sponsor a great many amateur players including JASMINE BOLSOVER the Women's World number 14 in her tournaments along with DALTON LAWRENCE a World Champion in the Disability Snooker Association. Snookerz is also joint sponsoring the Byfleet League Snooker team who are playing in the national league finals on the weekend of June 29 and 30. TERRY has always been a great supporter of the Byfleet League for which I am extremely grateful. We share the same passion for the good of the game and I value his input and ideas to promote and improve the Byfleet League. I am so pleased that TERRY has been nominated for this BBC Award and even more pleased that despite so much adversity he has fought his way back. The winners will be announced at a ceremony in London in September. Best of luck TERRY, and thank you for what you are doing for the game that so many of us love. KJ

Both played extremely well at times and it was a very entertaining match. With 10 minutes remaining RYAN showed touches of brilliance compiling an 85 break that ended any remaining hope for IAN. Both these finals were refereeed by Phil Vowels. Many thanks to Phil,along with Woking Snooker Centre and West Byfleet Social Club for use of their tables. KJ
