2018 Tour 1 Preview

January 17, 2018 in Competitions by Tour Admin

The 2018 UK Pool Tour is about to kick off at the home of 8 ball pool, the Imperial Hotel, Blackpool. This impressive hotel is about to play host to some of the finest pool playing talent on the planet and here we have a rundown of who is likely to feature in this weekend’s action, kicking off at 1pm on Friday 2nd February.

The start of the 2017 season saw Tom Cousins taking the spoils at each of the first 3 events, surely lightening can't strike twice but no doubt Tom will be looking to get off to a flying start in Blackpool at a venue where he has seen numerous victories including his two World Championship titles. He begins with a preliminary match against new player Fraser Allan, just about the toughest starter match for a new player on the tour!

Phil Harrison capped his 2018 season by taking the final tour of the season and making the final of the Premier League knockout. No doubt he won't be looking to leave it so late to pick up a title this season and will be looking to get off to a flying start against Paul Carr.

A number of tough first round games are on the cards including Matt Brierley vs Dom Cooney, Shaun Storry vs Neil Davey and Ryan Bodsworth vs Glenn Cahir, all of which could be too close to call.

 

As always entry is free so if you want to watch some top quality pool then get down to the Imperial Hotel. If you can't make it for any reason then catch some of the action on our stream. The link will be posted on this site and on Facebook in advance of the event starting.

The draws for the tour and the challenge events can be found below:

New for 2018 – National Seniors KO Cup – Thu 17 May 2018.

December 3, 2017 in EPA News by English Pool Association

The National Seniors Knock Out Cup will be run in a similar way to the Ladies Knock Out Cup, ie a team can be picked from either a Seniors County Squad or a Seniors team playing Interleague. The teams will be made up of 7 players male or female who will be aged 50 or over by 31 December 2018. This will be a 2018 event so before requesting places in the finals, you will need to ensure your County is affiliated for 2018 and players will need to be 2018 card-holders. Entry via your County Secretary. Also running on the same weekend for the Seniors is the Seniors World Masters Qualifier (details available shortly). Other events include the Men's World Masters Qualifier on the Friday and the Golden Cue and Silver Cue on the Saturday and Sunday.
