Rahim Haji wins Jaffery Motors Invitational Snooker Tourney!  

Coastweek -- Rahim Haji became the new Jaffrey Motors Snooker champion when he beat Suheil Khan in three straight frames in a best of five frames final played at the Mombasa sports club on Friday 3rd of March 2017, reports NORBERT FERNANDES.

Rahim who has been among the top players at the Coast for quite some time reached the finals beating Sagar Karia and Sumaria  while Suheil Khan beat Yusuf Esmailjee and Siraaj Esmailjee in some very exciting matches.

However the final did not live upto to the expectations and Rahim with all his experience made it look easy against his opponent Suheil Khan who put up a creditable performance to reach his first final.

The defending champion Phillip Cheruiyot had to concede his game in the first round as he was travelling upcountry and could not defend his title.

The tournament organised by the snooker section of Mombasa sports club and sponsored by Mr. Amin Ladak of Jaffrey Motors who is also an ardent snooker player had an entry of 39 players from Mombasa clubs namely KPA club, Oshwal sports club, Burhani sports club, Goan Institute and others.

Some of the top players including veterans Shashi Malde, Alihusein Namajee, Faroukh Khan, Eric Ngeno and Khuzema Poti, Nuruddin Haji, Hassan Namajee all took part.

It is very encouraging to see such a good entry and its time other clubs should also organise such events to promote the game of snooker in Mombasa.

Mombasa sports club snooker captain Alpesh Khimji thanked the sponsor Amin Ladak for his generous sponsorship for the second year in a row; he also thanked all the participants for taking part and making the tournament a great success.

The sponsor Amin Ladak thanked the snooker section of Mombasa sports club for a very well organised tournament and pledged that this would be an annual fixture at MSC.

Prizes were presented by the sponsor to the winners.

Winner -  Rahim Haji, Runner up - Suheil Khan and Highest Break - Siraaj Esmailjee  31 points.

Prize giving was followed by a sumptuous dinner courtesy of the sponsor.
