PLAYERS:
These tournaments are open events to any player………if it happens that any player or players don’t agree with the rules which is set in place by Ireland’s American 8 & 9 Ball Pool Tour, the organizers has the right to refuse any entry if need be……

NOTE:——–Ireland’s American 8 & 9 Ball Pool Tour hasn’t been organizing any events in 2010 due a busy schedule on other sports and the lack of playing venues in Ireland, which has seen a lot of  players returning back to play other cue-sport games, but Ireland’s American 8 & 9 Ball Tour are still searching to find new playing venues for its tour, and will still be trying  to help promote all American Cue-Sport games throughout the 32 Counties..………

Ireland’s American 8 & 9 Ball Tour has been organizing events throughout Ireland since 2003 and the organizers believes the only way forward is to start promoting the game in all counties throughout Ireland which is hard at the present time because a lot of counties doesn’t even have one American table in venues but Ireland’s American 8 & 9 Ball Tour are still willing to keep trying…..

On the other hand there are probably venues out there with American tables that the tour doesn’t know about so if players could let the organizers know of any venues the tour will make contact with the venue owners even if its only one table…….

TOURNAMENTS:

The tour has secured a new playing venue in Letterkenny, Co. Donegal and will be holding a new 9-ball tournament there shortly………

A new invitation £1,000 champion of champions is being planned.

A new invitation 2,000 euros players league is also being planned which will be played over a weekend of  Saturday & Sunday.
