Draw: BUCS-UPC Eight-ball Pool Championships 2016-2017

Vauxhall Holiday Park prepares to welcome another huge field for the BUCS-UPC Eight-ball Pool Championships as a total of 667 competitors will descend on the venue from 23rd to 26th February 2017. Despite a slight decrease in the total number of institutions competing, we still have a tournament record of 140 teams playing across the men’s and women’s tournaments. We expect the level of competition on the 56 tournament standard pool tables to be as fierce as ever!

We are pleased to announce some exciting initiatives and services taking place at this week’s BUCS-UPC Eight-ball Pool Championships event in Great Yarmouth:

Flyers / Practice Tables

At close of official tournament play each evening, and if time permits, some tables in the main hall (Regency Room) will be set aside for organised flyer competitions for those interested – please listen out for announcements during the day about how to register for these, which will be organised by the support staff and not the UPC. All remaining tables will be available for free open practice, as will the games room throughout the event.

Tables in the V-Arena will also be available for free practice from 2pm on Wednesday 22nd February 2017.

Streaming & Social Media

Selected matches will be streamed live on the internet on our official UPC YouTube channel and recordings of all featured matches will be available for re-watch at a later date, courtesy of Joe Redhead. Don’t forget to join our Facebook and Twitter sites (see left icons) to receive EXCLUSIVE live updates from the event.

Pool Shop

We are pleased to announce that Sanctuary Cues, run by Aggie Bailie, will have a pool shop at the event this year. Aggie will offer the usual pool shop equipment and suplies, as well as re-tipping (using a mini-lathe), re-ferrules, and cue MOTs, so if you want to sort out your cue once and for all, giving yourself absolutely no excuse for failure – here’s your chance!
