Dress code

Everything you need to know about the dress code for the Festival of Pool

Player dress code:

  • There is NO DRESS CODE on Thursday night.
  • There is NO DRESS whilst playing in flyers or when renting tables for practice.
  • All players in the playing arena, competing in any main event on Friday, Saturday or Sunday, must be dressed in keeping with the status of the tournament and look smart and presentable. We don’t want players in tracksuits, baseball caps, denim or scruffy attire. Players must wear trousers or chinos, shoes or formal looking footwear and a shirt with a collar – polo shirts are the most popular choice of garment. Ladies can wear heels, flats, wedges, boots, skirts or trousers.  Smart fancy dress that meets the dress code criteria is acceptable.
  • No jeans, denim, trainers, pumps, tracksuits, combat pants, collarless shirts, t-shirts or any scruffy attire.
  • Players unsuitably dressed must change if they wish to continue playing. Refusal will lead to loss of frames and possible disqualification from the event.
  • Exceptions to the dress code for medical reasons can be made, but must be agreed with organises in advance of the tournament or before playing.
  • We embrace creative team names as it adds to the fun of the weekend, but we will not accept names that are deemed offensive or too long to announce over the microphone.
  • Team names, logos, pictures etc, can be printed or embroidered on the back and front of polo shirts.
