Thanks for visiting the about us page.
We sell a large range of cues and other sporting goods with many new products being added regularly. Linking Snooker & Pool products together was a natural extension of our business model, as it is what we all have in our Lounge Rooms, Game rooms or in the Clubs we visit.
Sharp Global Enterprises also has another site under www.worldcuesports.com.au and others coming soon in other retail areas.
I have Played Competitive Snooker and Pool in Australia, New Zealand and the USA. It is through my personal experience with the game that I sought our products myself before and learned how hard it was to understand how to get quality products.
I researched for years before starting up our own business. It started gradually and I am proud to say that it is an Aussie Grown Business & 100% Australian Owned & Managed.
We only offer quality products. We want to be around for a long time and feel that it’s better to sell quality instead of quantity. So anything we sell we first use to make sure it is up to our standards.
This is how good Walter Lindrum thought Peradon cues where. Walter Lindrum

2010 NSW STATE MINOR
June 19th & 20th
Congratulations Michael Sharp: 2010 NSW Minor Snooker Champion.Michael beat Luke Hough 4-0 in the final last night at Kingsgrove RSL, having a semi-final win over Andrew Samarjia 3-2, and Newcastle’s Rob Elsley 3-2 in the quarter final.
The tournament highest break (79) was achieved by a new player to the NSW scene, Sebastian Zhang. I think everyone would agree that Sebastian’s performance throughout the event was a cut above the average – as was Patrick Leung’s (semi-finalist), Andrew Samarjia’s (semi-finalist) and, of course, the runner-up Luke Hough, who played his usual aggressive game, making some great memorable long pots.
Well done too all the other players making it through to the quarters : Sebastian (above), Ron Tulloch, Rob Elsley and Ali Ganji.
For the benefit of those players not familiar with the history of this event, it was initiated in 1947 as a major Snooker Championship open only to players who have not yet won a Championship in NSW or Australia. A player can only win it once and it has been won by some of Australia’s most outstanding players:

It is a historically important event carrying some significance. We had 47 runners, however counting players who contacted us late the number would have been well over 50.
A good weekend was had by all players and spectators. Thanks go to Kingsgrove RSL for their generous sponsorship and Ramsgate RSL for allowing us to use their tables for the excess games on Saturday. Special thanks to Bill Hart for managing the event and our referees: Stuart Tait, Richard James, Alex Anson, Steve Brenan and Bill Springett.
