Former BPA play­ers join SA clubs

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Sport Starts Here - Fun­gai Mud­erere Sports Re­porter

FORMER Bulawayo Pool As­so­ci­a­tion (BPA) trio of Geshem Nesh, Joseph Mwanza and Ni­code­mous Charun­dura are now ply­ing their trade in South Africa where they re­cently joined pro­fes­sional pool clubs.

Nesh signed for Planet Pool Club in Eden­vale four months ago while Mwanza and Charun­dura now do duty for Nd­o­faya Pool Club who are reg­is­tered with the Soweto Pool As­so­ci­a­tion.

In the lo­cal pool scene, Nesh and Mwanza turned out for de­fend­ing cham­pi­ons Kings, while Cha­ran­dura was on the books of Lounge Sharks.

Asked how he would com­pare Zim­babwe’s bil­liards stands to those of Mzansi, Nesh said: “In Zim­babwe we are a bit be­hind with things to do with pro­fes­sion­al­ism and tac­ti­cal abil­ity.

“Pool is a re­spected sport in South Africa, clubs have a par­tic­u­lar dress code when go­ing for matches.

“Dur­ing games play­ers are not dis­turbed at all whether through ver­bal at­tacks or ac­tions.

“We should try and em­u­late that as Zim­bab­weans.”

They have since made good con­tacts with Na­tional Black­ball Fed­er­a­tion of South Africa pres­i­dent Saths Reggw who dou­bles up as All Africa Pool As­so­ci­a­tion vice pres­i­dent.

South Africa will soon be go­ing to Ire­land for a con­test and in 2017, Zim­babwe will be send­ing a team to Uganda for the Na­tional Pool Cham­pi­ons. — @Fun­gaiMud­erere
