9th Annual Colorado Junior State 9-Ball Championships

Colorado’s popular juniors event will kick off with its 9th Annual Colorado State Juniors 9-Ball Championships that is scheduled for Saturday, November 16th, 2013. 

Tournament director and creator of this prestigious juniors event is WPBA touring professional Melissa Little. “This year will be the 1st time it is not hosted in downtown Denver and instead will continue forward each year in a new venue. I am excited to have the opportunity to host this event up north at Match-Up Billiards located at 625 S Mason Street, Fort Collins, Colorado and give the youth in neighboring states, like Wyoming, a better opportunity to participate.” says Little.
The youth event is open to any junior between the ages of 7-18 and will be handicapped by age groups. Doors will open at Match-Ups at 9 am and play will begin promptly at 10 am, $15 entry fee, double elimination, and participants will play 9-ball on the 9 ft. tables. Lots of prizes will be awarded to the kids throughout the event.
