My son ton is practising the snookersport since he was about 17 years old. And as a proud mother I can say that he plays the balls quit well. So he is playing already several years the Dutch championship, and most of the times he is finishing at the last 16. At this moment he is playing the Dutch Snooker Ranking. And he is playing quit well . In teamcompetition he is playing  for Purmerend 1 in the premierleage. Since about 2 years he made his dream come thrue, and built his own snookerroom at the topfloor of his new house. Therefore he had to do a very big rebuilding, because the table is pretty heavy. So in the floor had to become iron beams.

At 13:00 hour the final of the men. Rolf against Ton. Unfortunatly it was to mutch for Ton, and gave it all in the morning. After 4-1 behind, he came back at 4-2, but had to leave the game to Rolf, and lost the final with 5-2. But he can look back at a splended tournament, and will be the runner up this year in the Netherlands.
