New Ultimate Pool Series is FREE this weekend…
The second edition to the start of the 2022 Ultimate Pool Pro/Challenger/Women’s Series is FREE to watch this weekend on the Ultimate Pool Live Stream and on Freesports in the UK from Friday.
Pool fans can watch the action from the Professional, Challenger and Women’s Series’ taking place at The Grand Hotel in Blackpool between the 4th-6th March.
Viewers in the UK will be able to tune in to extensive FreeSports coverage of the TV table, but ultimatepool.tv will again also be livestreaming three feature tables (the TV table and two other arena tables).
Freesports coverage for UK fans begins on Friday from 12PM and 7PM but you will NOT be able to watch on the stream when the main table is in play on Freesports.

288 Players of the Challenger Series will be competing as 16 will land place on the main Pro Series next year.
New twist for 2022…
On the website, it reads: “An exciting addition to the Ultimate Pool scene this season is the 84-player Women’s Series. In a commitment to boost the standard and profile of the women’s game, Ultimate Pool guarantees that at least one woman player will be in the professional ranks each season, and the Women’s Series offers a pathway for this.”
An Ultimate Pool representative told SnookerZone about the new plans that are on the way for Ultimate Pool in the months to come: “We have many plans and ideas that are currently being discussed. 8-ball is a very popular sport in terms of people participating, such as in local leagues and events in the UK and many countries in Europe and beyond.Whilst our visibility at the moment may be seen towards the professional players, we are passionate about the grassroots and getting more people involved with the sport. Our Challenger Series this season (which begins next weekend in Blackpool) has risen from 128 players last year, to 288 players this year – and we have a reserve list. We are looking at expanding these numbers again in 2023, although there are a lot of logistical issues with this that we need to figure out.”
