The Billiards and Snooker Association of the ACT (inc) was formed in 1948 by a group of billiards
enthusiasts from two local Departments: the ACT Transport Section and the ACT Fire Brigade.
Originally named the Canberra Amateur Billiards Association, regular competitions were held between
the two authorities, gradually enlarging to cater for the emerging club scene in Canberra.
Each year since 1948, there have been billiards and snooker competitions running in the ACT under the
auspices of the BSAACT.
They are held twice each year, starting in February and again in July.
Prior to 1985, the BSAACT was affiliated with the Billiards & Snooker Association NSW, which gave
the BSAACT access to national representation.
In 1985 the BSAACT affiliated with the Australian Billiards and Snooker Council (ABSC), who are the
governing body for the sport in Australia.
They, in turn, are affiliated with the world-wide governing body, the International Billiards and
Snooker Federation (IBSF).
We welcome prospective members from all groups; male, female, young and old, and encourage
participation by coaching and promotion of our sport at each opportunity.
