Melbourne & Snooker

Melbourne is known for producing world class snooker champions, like the unbeatable Walter Lindrum (and his brother) who dominated the sport in the 1920's. Today Hotel Lindrum is located in the building that became the Melbourne hall of snooker.

Australian Champion

We find it interesting that a player that has enjoyed the success that Neil has over the years has not been lauded as a champion in his home country the way other sports stars are. Neil, we are proud of you and your achievements, specially seeing you are from marvellous Melbourne. We look forward to seeing you back home in 2014 for the Australian Championships.
