Tournament Wristbands

Everything you need to know about tournament wristbands.

This event requires wristbands.

All players and guests must have a weekend tournament wristband to gain access to the event.  Wristbands must be worn at all times in the arena and no player or spectator will be allowed access without a wristband. Player weekend wristbands cost £50 each, but these are free for those that book the pool accommodation package with the Norbreck.

Booking the pool accommodation package.

All players and guests who book the Golden 8 Ball pool accommodation package with the Norbreck Castle Hotel, will receive free wristbands as part of their accommodation package – worth £50 each.

Players can only book the pool accommodation package, once they have registered their team. This can be done through the accommodation booking form which will be emailed to the team manager, once their team has been accepted by the tournament committee.

Important notice

Guests that book directly with the Norbreck hotel or through a 3rd party booking agent, like, will not receive free wristbands, as they have not booked the official Golden 8 Ball pool accommodation package.

Please only use our online accommodation booking form, if you wish to receive free wristbands.

Need to knows

When and where do I collect my wristband?

Players who have booked the Golden 8 Ball accommodation package are to collect their tournament wristbands from the playing arena, after they have checked into the hotel on Thursday.

I'm staying elsewhere, what do I need to do?

Players not booking the Norbreck pool package can purchase their weekend tournament wristband at the event on Thursday evening or Friday morning. The prices for the wristbands are shown below.

What are the wristband prices?

  • £50.00 for a weekend wristband
  • £80.00 for a Festival wristband, to cover both weekend events
  • £20.00 for a weekend spectator wristband
  • £10.00 for a day spectator wristband

All proceeds from spectator wristbands is donated to the nominated charity of the festival.

What happens if I damage my wristband?

Damaged wristbands can be exchanged free of charge at the organisers desk. You must return your damaged wristband to get a new one.

What happens if I lose my wristband?

Sorry, but if you lose your wristband you will be required to purchase another one at the full price. This is a strict policy that we adhere to. We advise players to fit their wristbands as soon as they get them.
