The Youth Pool Series is run exclusively for the future generation of pool players most of whom will have been playing pool for less than 2 years. For this years details please see the link to the right. Please note these events are open to anyone under 18 who is interested, not just county players.
Although there are a lot of young people interested in pool they lack the facilities to practice. Most venues won’t let youngsters play until they’re at least 14, whereby their interest may have waned. The aim of the series is to tap into that hidden talent and to allow them to improve their game, hopefully at the same time, making new friends and friendly rivalries, all with the added spice of honest competition.
The Series usually consists of 10 individual events.
2014 Dates coming soon!
The Series will consist of 10 individual “double elimination” knockout events with ranking points gained by all players depending on how well they do at each event (similar to Formula One motor racing). The more events you attend the more points will be gained. (A double-elimination tournament is a competition in which a participant ceases to be eligible to win the tournament’s championship upon having lost two games or matches. It stands in contrast to a single-elimination tournament, in which only one defeat results in elimination).
No prior notification is required – just turn up on the day and play.
Following the 10th and final event the player with the most ranking points will be declared the Series Winner (a play-off will be played in the event of 2 or more players being tied).
Trophies will be awarded to the Winner and Runner-up at each event as well as to the overall Series Winner.
Additionally, the Series Winner will be retained for the county youth team for the following season. i.e. the 2014 winner will qualify for the 2015 team
(*players must be 17 or under on 1st March of the relevant year to be eligible to play in the Youth Team in the County Championships).
All events will be held at:
The Crown House Club,
Events usually take place on a Saturday or Sunday, registration for each event will be at 11.30am with play commencing at 12 noon and should finish by 5pm.
