Ralph Ludwig; NPBF president; “We want to apply to the Sport Commission to grant pool authority to be recognised as a National Sport Code.

Coastal Warriors Pool Club (CWPC) won the 2018 Namibian Pool and Billiards Federation Black Ball league.

CWPC and Desert Inn Pool Club (DIPC) finished with six points after four matches. CWPC, however, had a superior frame (30 against 2) difference.

CWPC recorded two wins, two losses and scored 79 frames for and 49 frames against. DIPC recorded one win, three draws and scored 65 frames for and 63 frames against.

Young Ones Pool Club (YOPC) also pipped Khomas Tornadoes Pool Club (KTPC) for the third place with a superior frame difference.

The sides were tied on five points each after four games.

YOPC recorded one win, a draw, two losses and scored 66 frames for and 62 frames against. KTPC scored 49 frames for and 79 frames against. Both clubs are based in Windhoek.

Swakopmund Pool Club (SWPC) finished at the bottom of the log with four points. The club collected four points from a win and a draw, and suffered two losses.

The five affiliated NPBF member teams elected a new management in March this year in Walvis Bay: Ralph Ludwig -President, Howard Brown - Vice President, Reginald van Wyk -Treasurer, Marcellino Martin - League Administrator and Dianne Ludwig -PRO and ad hoc Secretary- General.

The NPBF management is elected for a period of three years and intends to meet a number of requirements.

“As soon as everything is in place the NPBF wants to apply to the Sport Commission to grant pool authority to be recognised as a National Sport Code. This will enable us to select a National Namibian Pool Team which can play international games against other countries. Players can also qualify for national colours and represent Namibia in such games,” said NPBF president Ralph Ludwig.

He listed transport expenses, clubs struggling with funds and players, while some are looking for sufficient venues as some of the challenges faced by member clubs.

“One of our aims for the next year is to involve as many youths as possible to participate in the code. The sport code needs sponsors to cover some needs, pay for venues, prize moneys, trophies and transport arrangements for 2019. Management will also try its utmost to conduct more activities to generate funds to assist the clubs.”

He pointed out that clubs like Rehoboth and Rundu did not participate in league activities this year.

Ludwig further said the NPBF plans to host a workshop for all interested and registered clubs in various regions to develop pool everywhere early in the new year.

“The date for this exercise will be confirmed. The AGM is also planned for all interested and registered clubs on 2 February 2019 at a venue to be confirmed soon.”
