All players and guests must have a weekend tournament wristband to gain access to the event – these are provided FREE to players and guests who book the ‘Golden 8 Ball Pool Accommodation Package’ with the Norbreck Castle Hotel. Players can only book the pool accommodation package, once they have registered their team.
Those not booking the pool accommodation package must purchase their wristbands. These are £45 for players and £20 for spectators. They are available to buy from the team registartion desk on Thursday.
Guests that book directly with the Norbreck hotel OR THROUGH A THIRD PARTY SITE LIKE BOOKING.COM, will not receive free wristbands, as they will not be on the pool package rate. Please only use the official Golden 8 Ball pool package accommodation booking form, if you wish to receive free wristbands.
Players not booking the Norbreck pool package can purchase their weekend tournament wristband at the event, on Thursday evening or Friday morning. The cost for these are shown below.
Players are to collect their tournament wristbands from the playing arena, after they have checked into the hotel on Thursday.
