thumbJACK HEDLEY R.I.P.
August 14, 2018
I am very sad to report that Jack Hedley passed away peacefully in the Windsor Hospice last night following a long and brave battle with cancer. I visited him recently and whilst very ill he was in good spirits. He said that he really enjoyed playing in the Byfleet League and had met a lot of lovely people. He was also impressed by the number of good players and he chatted about them and some of the matches he participated in. Jack played in the league during the 2013 and 2016 seasons with team mates Ray and Anthony Everest, Darren Warrington and Martin Court for the Lightwater Village Club and Egham Constitutional Club. He was unbeaten in league matches and won two Billiards Championships. He won lots of tournaments during his playing career notably two CIU National Championships and a Grand Masters. Jack hailed from Middlesborough and played in the famous Teeside Boys League that produced many great billiards players. He moved to Maidstone in Kent around 10 years ago before settling in the Maidenhead area. Jack was a tremendous player and whilst ruthless on the table he always gave his opponents great respect and spent time afterwards helping them to improve and showing them shots. He was gracious on the rare occasions he lost and always acknowledged good shots. No one present will forget the magnificent finals against Mark Leonard in 2014 and 2015. They had great respect for each others game and their status. Mark beat Jack in 2014 but Jack avenged this in 2015. The standard was excellent and it was a joy to watch. Jack's billiard style was more of the all round game rather than top of the table and his ability to make cannons was exceptional. His highest break ever was 528. Jack was a special person and will be greatly missed by his many friends and victims in the Byfleet League. His legacy will live on though and continue to be an inspiration. A memorial evening is being planned to be held at the Ivy Leaf Club in Maidenhead. As soon as I have details I will post on here. KJ
