New Era for 8 Ball as Ultimate Pool Leads the Way…

WRITE OFF the sport of 8 Ball Pool at your peril…

Have you joined the action on a Monday night? Mark Selby the World four-time Snooker Champion has for Ultimate Pool!

Because since December, Ultimate Pool has gone global and news has just reached SnookerZone that the sport is making a resounding comeback – partly due to social media.

According to the UPG website, their Facebook following has reached at least 50,000.

And, their Twitter account reads…

Whilst that may appear small-fry for some, with the added mix of television coverage on Freesports Channel 64 and every Monday night an event that continues to pull in the crowds with big names in snooker and pool, such as Mark Selby, Chris Melling, and Gareth Potts all jumping on board, then there’s really no excuse to turn a blind eye to this game that’s on the rise and growing rapidly.

Since its inception, the drama has known no bounds with three-way six-reds shootouts, golden breaks, and the odd shock here and there!

Within a 28-day period (between September 23rd to October 20th) the Ultimate Pool Facebook pageย reached over 21 million people, withย over 2 million engaging in posts. Within another 28-day spell, an incredibleย 6.1 million minutes of video content has been viewedย on the platform.

Audience demographics are international too, with the best performing countries outside of the UK being France, India, the Philippines, Morrocco, Bangladesh and Indonesia.

Will Caldwell โ€“ Head of Digital Media for the Ultimate Pool Group โ€“ is delighted with recent results and excited for further exponential growth, and said.

โ€œSocial Media is a huge part of the development and growth of 8-ball pool. With the figures that Ultimate Pool is producing, itโ€™s clear to see that the sport really does have a global fanbase. We will continue to produce exciting content that our viewers tune in to see, week in, week out.โ€

Over here at SnookerZone we’ve done and will continue to do our bit for the Ultimate Pool coverage with interviews, match reports of the Ultimate Pool Pairs Cup, and we’ll continue to support this great venture in any way we can!

8 Ball is back on the way up!
