Greg Jenkins

Playing Cue: OB-126 with an OB Pro Shaft

Break Cue: Brown OB Break Cue

With over 30 years experience playing international Snooker and Pool, Greg has gained plenty of knowledge and skills, competing in many World Championships. His career began playing Snooker and he quickly moved through the Junior ranks claiming 2 Australian Championships. He also played in the 1st Junior Pot Black Snooker TV program in the UK where he finished a very credible semi finalist. His progression to the Professional ranks was always going to be hard, having to travel constantly between Australia and the UK. He achieved a highest ranking of 87 and after 6 years as a Professional, he decided to return to Australia and continue his love of playing back here.

Pool had always taken a back seat to snooker, but in 1992 9-Ball came to Australia. Greg was 2nd in the NSW 9-Ball Championships and then followed with a 1st in the Inaugural Australian 9-Ball Championships. This introduced him to the World stage again, this time through Pool. His first match in the 1992 World 9-Ball Championships was against Legend player Steve Mizerak(Hall of Famer), where he had decided to forget the opponent and just think that he could play too. This attitude nearly brought a major upset, but Greg was very well represented in losing 3 sets to 2 and finding another cue sport he could excel at.

Greg has gone on to claim 3 Australian 9-Ball titles, with the most recent in 2007, some 13 years after his last, so never count him out. He has been selected to represent Australia in Pool (8 & 9Ball), in the Trans Tasman Team over 13 times and still holds the record of 12 out of 12 wins during a test match.

He has also been selected to play in the very prestigious Challenge of Champions, a 9-Ball event where only 8 players from around the world are asked to play. Both occasions he has narrowly lost 5-7, giving a very account of himself.

Many years later and many titles won, Greg continues to play at the highest level, and with his love of learning more and even greater love of passing on that knowledge, he will continue to be a force in the sport until he chooses not to be.
