August 2012 saw the official launch of the new Virtual Pool 4 game, brought to you by the excellent team at Celeris. VP4 is, in short, the leading brand in pool simulation and we are delighted to highlight the game’s release, not least because it features the UPC!
See if you can spot us in this trailer:
Those attending the UPC Nine-ball Pool Championships last year will have seen some early promotion for the game, as our friends at Celeris donated some exclusive VP4 T-shirts for us to hand out to the more successful players on the weekend…
The game also features the UPC Head of Coaching, Steve Daking, as a virtual coach. Steve has been appointed Head of Coaching of the World Eight-ball Pool Federation, and English Pool Association, as well as for the UPC, tasked with putting in place a network of qualified coaches (for more information, please click here). Virtual Pool 4 is supporting Steve in that endeavour, and offered him an exclusive preview of the game. See him talk you through that preview by clicking here.
