Coastal Warriors rule on the pool table

Coastal Warriors Pool Club from Swakopmund took the Champ of Champs title on Saturday – the most cherished team title of the Namibia Pool and Billiards Federation’s (NPBF) annual showpiece event.

The winning club took home a trophy, gold medals and a cash prize after their performance over two days at the Offside Sports Bar in the capital.

Coastal Warriors took the spoils ahead of Young Ones Pool Club’s B and A sides, who finished second and third respectively to be rewarded with silver and bronze medals as well as cash prizes.

The individual Champ of Champs competition was contested with the annual President’s Cup division.

Mutual goals

Rehoboth Pool Club’s Quinten Swarts secured the individual winner’s trophy, gold medal and cash prize, beating Fillopus Wakambalala (Coastal Warriors) in the final. The bronze final was won by Alfredo de Klerk of Young Ones.

The player of the tournament prize went to Wilhelm Katana (Coastal Warriors), who was rewarded with a trophy and cash prize.

The NPBF’s league player of the year was Jannie Moller (Celtic Pool Club) from Swakopmund, which also landed him a trophy and a cash prize.

"The Board hereby thanks you all for making the COC a huge success, and I believe that we all will join hands and work hard towards our mutual goal," the NPBF president Cyril van Rooi said.
