August 20, 2018 in Competitions by Tour Admin

Join the 2019 UK Pool Tour

 

Since its introduction in 2012 the UK Pool Tour has continued to go from strength to strength. The UK Pool Tour is recognised as the place where the best players in the country pit their wits against each other and play out for a prize fund that has consistently paid out well above the level it generates from the players.  The prize money for 2018 will be in excess of £100,000 and as always, any winnings will be available to collect on the weekend.

If you want to be part of the best pool tour around and test your skills against some of the best players in the world then don't delay, get your entry in now as places are strictly limited.

It is intended that we will be having over 160 players on the 2019 tour of which around 120 will be from the existing members of the tour. This will give 40+ new entrants the opportunity to enter next years’ UK Pool Tour.

All details of the tour are, including an application form, can be found by clicking here. We are now accepting entries from suitable new entrants; please include the initial £50 deposit.

The tour consists of 5 weekends of pool played out at fantastic hotels across the UK. At each weekend there are at least two tournaments on offer. There is the tour itself, which is one of the most coveted titles in the pool world. Here you will be competing against the very best of players from around the UK and beyond. In addition to this there is the Challenge Event. This is only available to non-Premier League players and therefore levels the playing field a little.

For those who do exceptionally well there is the chance to play in the Premier League. This is where the elite do battle for a share of a substantial prize fund.

In addition to the 5 weekend event tours you will be able to enter into the World Qualifiers held at Tour Two, where the last 16 player go forward to the 2017 World Championship Finals.

All UK Tour Members can also enter directly into the World Masters (subject to entry fee), which has a prize fund of £18,000. This event is held during the World Championships.

The Ladies Premier League has been a great success and will be continued in the 2019 season.

If you require any further details please ring me on 07734-307135.

Tournament Director, George Harwood.

2018 UKPT Event 4 - Daventry

The 2018 season has only two events remaining and those looking to make the Premier League places for 2019 need to ensure they put in a shift at the fourth event of the season in order to keep racking up the points! There are three notable Premier League players on the fringes of the required ranking, namely Tom Cousins, Adam Davis and Giuseppe D’Imperio. These are three of the games top players and it would surely be a huge disappointment for them to miss out on what has become a regular feature for them. The fourth event provides an opportunity for them to kick on in the rankings but there will be plenty of other top players around them who will be vying for their first taste of the Premier League such as tour 1 finalist David Stock, tour 3 finalist Sam Bircher and the up and coming Shaun Storry to name but a few. Top 10 in the final rankings cements your place for next year and a good run at tour 4 could easily boost those a little further off the pace into contention such as current Premier League player Matt Brierley, Ireland’s Dylan Leary or England’s Shane Thompson who are all still in with a shout.

Karl Sutton will no doubt be looking to follow up his last tour double success with another good run here and as fate would have it he has drawn the same first round opponent as he had at tour 3, Oldham’s John Maugham. Maugham is a very capable player who got few chances in the last match but will be looking to set the record straight this time around. The draw will be available online shortly but a few first round matches to look out for are Gurvinder Gill vs Eddie Barker, both players had a good run in the Worlds with Gill making the last 16 and Barker losing out to Hill in the semis. Rob Wharne vs Gaz Royds is sure to be a tough battle with both being seasoned players and Pat Ward vs Shane Thompson sees a current Premier League player taking on last year’s Premier League.

The Ladies Premier League sees a top of the table clash with this years World Championship finalist Sharon James taking on current Premier League Champion Amy Beauchamp. Should James take the win then she will surely be on course to take the title as well, but should Beauchamp triumph then the league is wide open and that makes for a very interesting game.

As always, the tour is open for all to come and watch and play starts at 1pm on Friday 31st August at the Mercure Daventry Court Hotel. Streaming will begin at 9am on Saturday 1st September and the link will be available on this site and Facebook.
