Site C’s Sesethu Queencious Sinkwane’s dedication to the game of pool is finally paying off.

A fortnight ago she helped the Western Cape Eightball Union women’s team win a national tournament held in Margate in KwaZulu Natal.

“It was a team effort but I had a magnificent unbeaten run in singles games,” said Sesethu.

The Western Cape Eightball Union public relations officer Greg Willis hailed Sesethu’s passion for the game as “winning magic for the team”.

“We have three young ladies from Gugulethu – there is Boniswa Penelopi, in Strand we have Phelokazi Keyiki and they all play beautiful pool and Sesethu is part of that magic,” said Willis.

He said their victory in Margate meant the team will now be competing in the A division next year.

Willis lamented the lack of support from the government and businesses when it came to the game of pool.

President of the Western Cape Eightball Union, Juleen Stout, agreed with Willis saying they need support to grow the game.

“When our players are selected for competitions it’s a mammoth struggle to raise their travelling and accomodation fees,” said Juleen.

Despite the situation, Juleen said they were celebrating their victory in the national championships.

“We thank our players and those who support us in taking this game to the people,” she said.
