2017 Tour 4 Preview

August 16, 2017 in Competitions by Tour Admin

UK POOL TOUR 4 - HILTON METROPOLE, BIRMINGHAM (1st - 3rd September)

The long Summer break between tours 3 and 4 has nearly passed and it’s almost time to see if Tom Cousins can continue his unprecedented winning streak and take down his fourth UK Tour title on the spin.

The gap between the two tours was filled by the most prestigious event of the year, the World Championships, held in Blackpool at the end of June. Here, Cousins was regarded by most as the favourite to take the title and he came very close to doing so, losing out in the semi-final 10-6 to eventual winner, and previous UK Tour competitor, Mick Hill.

The tour was, however, well represented in the Worlds and provided two of the main singles winners, Amy Beauchamp took the ladies singles title with an emphatic 8-1 defeat of Kerry Griffiths and added to this the ladies’ masters title with a 6-5 win against Lorraine Fivey. Up and coming talent Josh Kane added another title to his collection, picking up the Men’s Masters with an impressive display in the final, defeating England captain Lee Kendal 10-5.

All in all, it was a good event for UK Tour players as the England men’s team, consisting largely of UKPT players, took the title with a convincing performance against Ireland in the final, running out 8-4 victors.

Now on to the next event! The draw has been done and as always has thrown out some interesting early games. Scotland’s Matt Brannan will have to be at his best if he wants to make it past the first round as he is up against World Championship runner-up Phil Harrison. An all-out attack match looks likely with England’s Mike King taking on 2016 World semi-finalist Richard King and a local affair in Harjeet Singh against Josh Corkett is surely going to be a good one to watch.

Beard Productions will be streaming from Friday afternoon until close of play on Saturday night. If you can’t make it down to the fabulous Hilton Metropole in Birmingham, where entry to watch all the action is free, then make sure you catch the action on the stream. The link will be posted on this site and on our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/ukpooltour/

2018 Entry Form

August 11, 2017 in Competitions by Tour Admin

Join the 2018 UK Pool Tour

 

Since its introduction in 2012 the UK Pool Tour has continued to go from strength to strength. The introduction of live streaming in 2016 was greatly received and this was further expanded in 2017 to provide coverage of more games. 2018 will again see the tour streamed and no doubt with new ideas being implemented to further enhance the image of the tour as the premier place to compete on the pool scene! The prize money for 2018 will be well 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 2018 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.

If all that isn’t enough then Tour Two also includes the Festival of Pool Team Classic. The 3 person Team Classic is open to tour members and the draw is random meaning that you could potentially be drawn in the same team as the World Champion.

The Ladies Premier League has been a continued success and will be continued in the 2018 season.

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

Tournament Director, George Harwood.
