Canadian 9-Ball Tour grows again

The Canadian 9-Ball Tour has been a steady grower during its first two years and has just announced that the growth continues into year three as the 2007-2008 season will see the tour increase from six to eight stops across Canada and the prize monies will leap up to $10,000 added money for each event, a doubling of that amount from previous years.

Exciting things are happening in Canada as this tour has just acquired major sponsorships from sources that are outside of the billiard industry. While previous year sponsors such as Stan James Bookmakers, Canada Bowling and Billiards, Aramith and Simonis are still on board, the sponsorship package for these events is expanding into the general marketplace, a healthy sign for the future of cuesports in Canada.

Tour Director Jim Wych offers: “The Canadian 9-Ball Tour came into being in order to provide Canadian players a proper vehicle to qualify for WPA international events such as the World Pool Championships and the World Cup of Pool. During our first two years we quickly have gained the recognition of the player community and now that recognition is spreading to the rest of the sports world. With developments that are currently underway this tour will become a grand vehicle for advertisers to reach their targets.” More news will be forthcoming shortly as the new sponsors and production developments will be announced within a matter of weeks.
