Special needs tournament

We are excited to announce our first ever ‘Special Needs’ event, making the festival of pool truly open to any player, regardless of their skill level or ability. Pool is a great community sport to be enjoyed by all, and we want anyone who loves playing pool to be able to experience the magic of the Golden 8 Ball.

The great advantage of our Special Needs Weekend is that players can either enter individually and be put into teams when they arrive, or come as a team.
