Amateur Snooker - 2015 German Snooker Championships

14th-22nd November / Bad-Wildungen, Germany

                     DOUBLE FOR LIPPE

Sascha Lippe beat former main tour professional Patrick Einsle in the final to become the Men's German Snooker Champion for the second time.

As part of the Deutsche Billard Union's 9 day cuesports extravaganza where a number of different discipline national championships were dished out, snooker had competitions for Men, Women and Seniors.

It was unfortunate that the timing clashed with the IBSF World Championships in Egypt, but there was still plenty of quality and well known faces from the amateur scene.

In a predictably close affair, Lippe came through 4-3 with the help of a fluked pink in the decider.

​In the Women's, Stefanie Muller beat Anje Hehre in the final for the Gold. 

Olaf Thode dethroned outgoing title holder Mario Burot to take the Seniors crown.
