2022 Festival of Pool
Countdown to Festival of Pool 2022
Let the good times roll…
Known as ‘The Prestigious Blackball Weekend’, our popular festival of pool is held over two consecutive weekends in June, attracting 274 teams and over 1,000 players to the Norbreck Castle Hotel in Blackpool. Any team can enter that meets the team entry criteria. There are no qualifiers and no requirement to be a member of any pool association. We are totally independent. We especially encourage new teams and novice players to come and experience the thrill of a weekend away, playing competitive pool against like minded people.
Our ethos is to create an excellent value, fun and friendly weekend for players of all skill levels and ability! By using the highest quality pool equipment, coupled with a great format and professional organisation, we aim to deliver the ultimate pool playing experience within a pub style atmosphere. Expect loud music, drinking, food, entertainment and plenty of banter!
