Back by popular demand! Although there was no November 2013 tournament, this was a temporary break and we should be back to running this event on a monthly basis from December 2013.
We began running this monthly pool tournament in April 2013 and this is a popular event for many people! All abilities welcome!
Me (Nik) and Malcolm devised a tournament based on 8-16 players. At first, everyone plays each other once. We limit the time spent on this so that we have time for the actual tournament, the first games of which are decided based on your ranking (percentage of games won) after the initial games.
The tournament itself is a knockout style, with winners from each match going on to play each other until the final. The losers play lower division games, so it won't be a case of losing a game, then not being able to play.
We will book 4-8 (depending on RSVPs) American Pool tables at Riley's, for 3 hours each. The tables cost £13.50 for 3 hours. This works out at £6.75 per person. For this cost, you'll get 3 hours of pool, cue hire, and a free year's membership to Riley's. The venue is usually open 24/7, has a bar with pints costing around £3.25 for Becks, and does basic food too. Please try to bring change, to simplify payment.
