Gippy Cup a big hit

ABOUT 200 competitors from across Victoria converged on Sale Memorial Hall for the Gippy Cup at the weekend.

World number two Steve Gray and Australian eight ball pool champion Kurt Dunham were among the competitors, with more than 18 teams competing.

Gray, from Traralgon, was part of the winning Gippy Cup team, along with event organiser Ash Vogt.

Dunham used the competition as training in the lead-up to this year’s national championships. The Gippy Cup was sanctioned by Pool Victoria, with high class eight ball on display.

A knock-out tournament was held on Friday night, with the singles competition on Saturday followed by a cabaret dinner. A teams competition on Sunday rounded out the event.

Organisers hope to expand the competition next year, hoping to attract interstate competitors.
