Welcome to the popular ‘Novice Series’ event!

We created the Novice event to encourage ordinary amateur pub pool players to come and take part in weekend tournaments; many of whom have never experienced one before. By keeping the more skilful players out, we hope the less skilful players will want to enter.

We love pool and want more people to come and experience the fun and excitement of a Golden 8 Ball weekend. Our ethos is ‘pool for all’ – players of all skill level and ability should be able to enjoy competitive pool and professional playing conditions.

We want novice players to enjoy competing against others of similar ability, so they get the buzz and excitement of having close, competitive matches, and the thrill of beating your opponent, or putting up a good fight. After all, there is not much fun in attending tournaments only to be obliterated all weekend by highly skilled players and teams!

We believe the game of pool can grow if more novice teams go home motivated and enthused, keen to start practising and developing their skills, determined to come back the following year with a bigger and better performance.
