Ted Pickett was one of Tasmania's greatest all-round sportsmen, participating in a number of sports - including cricket, football, badminton, tennis, athletics, golf, billiards and snooker - to a high level. Had he concentrated on one or two then he might have had a much higher degree of success than he enjoyed, but nevertheless he won the Australian Amateur Snooker Championship in 1955. In the same year he won the Tasmanian billiards and snooker titles, and also won awards in football and tennis. He was inducted into the Tasmanian Sporting Hall of Fame in 1994. Regarded as one of Tasmania's best wicketkeepers, albeit one with few pretensions with the bat, he played 11 times for the state between 1928-29 and 1935-36. A bookmaker by profession, he died seven weeks before his 100th birthday.
