Event : 8 Ball Pool Tournament

The return of the 8 Ball Pool tournament was earlier than usual to enable us to fall in line with Ambition UK’s National Pool Tournament and let the county winners progress.

On Sunday 6th October, young people gathered at Stephen Hendry’s Snooker & Pool Centre in Preston to compete against each other to find our Lancashire champions. Whilst numbers were down on previous years entries the standard of play and sportsmanship was as high as ever.

This year we had Diane Stocks (Lancashire Pool Youth Manager) ref’ing for us which was great and hopefully we can continue this partnership in future tournaments. Diane also identified a number of players who showed promise and who she would like to see at future Lancashire Pool youth trials. Another bonus this year was the re-introduction of a female tournament as this year saw a rise in number of female entrants.

As ever play was tight and went to the wire in many of the age categories but we did eventually find our champions, see below. Who were all very kindly invited by Diane and Stephen Hendry’s to their next Lancashire Youth training session the following weekend for some coaching before the national finals in two weeks’ time.

Lancashire Boys & Girls Clubs would like to thank Stephen Hendry’s Snooker & Pool Centre for their continued support, Diane Stocks for her ref’ing and support and also Laura & Phil (Tommy’s), Jasmine (Blackpool B&G) & John (Burnley B&G) for their help on the day.
