The action will be hot from the beginning as these fields will feature great matches from the very first day. And, from the very first day, the players and staff of the Ultimate 10-Ball Championships are devoted to raising funds for the Billiard Education Foundation. The BEF, founded in 1992, strives to present the game to our youth in a positive light in order to foster the next generation of players. Included in the activities of interest the star players will be signing cue balls that will be offered in raffles, auctions and outright sales. All monies from these sales will go straight to the BEF. Other activities will be announced at the tournament.

The action begins on June 17th at 9 AM in Tunica, Mississippi. Our host site is the Harrah's Hotel and Casino, 13615 Old Highway 61 North. The staff of the Ultimate 10-Ball Championships wishes to thank and honor the billiard industry firms that have contributed so much to professional pool over the last many years. The names of many of the great pro-game supporters are included on the banners you will see in the tournament room. These firms, and this list is not meant to be comprehensive, are: Iwan Simonis Cloth, Predator Cues, Aramith Balls, Diamond Tables, Master Chalk, Lucasi Hybrid Cues, Tiger Products, Poison Cues, OB Cues, Super Billiards Expo, Viking Cues, CSI International, Seyberts Billiard Supply, McDermott Cues, Fury Cues, the APA, Mueller Sporting Goods, PoolAction TV and AZBilliards. Our thanks go out to them and so many others who have put time, effort and funds into keeping the pro game active in America.
