Casual Pool Tournament

  • Jul 17, 2013 · 6:45 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

We began running a monthly pool tournament in April 2013 and this is a popular event for many people! All abilities welcome!

*PLEASE NOTE* If you are planning to bring a plus 1 with you, please let me know by adding a comment to the event. This helps us to know how many people will be there!

Me (Nik) and Malcolm devised a tournament based on 8-16 players. At first, everyone will play each other once. We'll limit the time spent on this so that we have time for the actual tournament, the first games of which will be decided based on your ranking (percentage of games won) after the initial games.

The tournament itself will be a knockout style, with winners from each match going on to play each other until the final. The losers will 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 £10 for 3 hours. This works out at £5 per person. For this cost, you'll get 3 hours of pool, cue hire, and a free year's membership to Riley's. This price is a discount for groups - usually the tables cost £9 per hour so you're saving money and it's a great opportunity to try out the game in a casual setting with a load of friendly people! The venue is usally open 24/7, has a bar with pints costing around £3.25 for Becks, and does basic food too (burgers, nachos & pizza). Please try to bring a £5 note/change or pay on your card, to simplify payment.

We keep track of people's attendance records. If someone says they're attending, then doesn't show and doesn't let us know, meetup tracks them as a "no show". If more than 16 people want to attend, priority will be given to more reliable members. Usually this wouldn't be a problem, but at events where we have to book in advance it does help if we have a good idea of how many people to expect!
