Although snooker fans will be gearing up for the sport’s blue riband event at the home of snooker in Sheffield at the Crucible from tomorrow, lower south in Birmingham in the Midlands, the second stage of the Ultimate Pool Pro Series gets underway today.
A few weeks ago, the Ultimate Pool crew staged a successful 2022 Ultimate Pool Pto Series events 1 and 2 in a hotel setting down in Blackpool and from today, they move to Series 3 and 4 to Birmingham at the Hilton Metropole.
With over 400 cueists in attendance, the continued success of the Ultimate Pool brand sees the best and the rest contest, with events for the women, the men, and, of course, the amateur Challenger Series.
You can rest assured that where there is Ultimate Pool, there is drama.
Fans of this growing sport can for the moment just turn up on the days and there is no cost for a ticket.
The Ultimate Pool website reads: “On the eight-event Professional Series, it was a memorable trip to the seaside in March for several of the sport’s all-time greats as Michael Hill claimed Event 1 and Chris Melling defeated Gareth Potts in the final to triumph in Event 2. The ‘Old School’ will be hoping to continue making the headlines in Birmingham in Events 3 and 4.
For the women, Harriet Haynes, arguably the best female 8-ball player out there at the moment, is in contention for promotion.
Again, the website reads: “Harriet Haynes is in pole position to earn promotion from the inaugural Women’s Series after defeating Sandy King in the televised Event 1 final. Arguably the best women’s player on the planet right now, Haynes will look to strengthen her lead at the top of the rankings with another victory in Birmingham, but that too will be a very tall order given the credentials and quality of the 84-player entry on show.
From looking at the Freesports schedule, it appears that the channel is not covering the event on TV, but you can watch the action on the Ultimate Pool website if you subscribe.
