Adam Lilley World Qualifiers Round 1 Session 1

Adam Lilley World Qualifiers Round 1 Session 2

WPBSA World Qualifiers - Adam Lilley - Opportunity has come Knocking

Adam Lilley has been given the opportunity of a life time to represent New Zealand on the 2nd largest world stage at the WPBSA World Championship Qualifiers in Sheffield, England.

Adam's opportunity came via WPBSA Chairman, Jason Ferguson's announcement, that the 2019 Oceania U21 winner or runner up is to have a place at the 2019 World Qualifiers, meaning that 128 players from around the world, both professional and amateur players are vying for 16 places to play the top 16 ranked players at the World Snooker Championships at the Crucible in Sheffield  this coming April.

Adam was so delighted to hear the news that his dream of playing on the world stage is now happening.

Adam who is now just 20, is not too young nor too old to compete at this level considering what Adam has achieved in the last 18 months in snooker and other cue codes of the sport.

Just last year Adam had represented NZ at his first IBSF World U21 Championships in Jinan, China and qualified to the knockout rounds of the last 32.

Also last year Adam was runner up to Mario Hildred in the 2018 Oceania U21 Championship with a 11th frame decider,and only just played recently the 2019 Oceania U21 championship and was again runner up to Alex pace from Australia,not only that placing but Adam compiled 2 century breaks of 112 and in the final 128 cl.

Adam is not only has a talent for snooker, but 8 ball and 9 ball as well, and just last month also he had won the regional 9 ball qualification to represent NZ at the US 9 Ball open in April.

Adam resides out of Canterbury formally from Taranaki and started representing NZ at the Trans Tasman Test Series for snooker and last year, Adam was the winning Captain of the NZ Test Team to bring home the Garry Hale Trohpy and as Adam was part of the winning NZ Team this year, that defended the trophy on home soil.

Adam's World qualifiers start on the 10th of April and to get through to the Crucible TV stages, Adam must win 3 rounds in the world qualifiers.

To follow Adam's progress go to www.worldsnooker.com 

The NZBSA Board has announced they will help with financial assistance for Adams trip.

On behalf of the NZBSA and OBSF, We wish Adam the best of luck while over there.
