Pool School in Paradise

In November 1996 four professional pool players got together to develop a unique concept. These pool players were Allison Fisher, Mike Massey, Gerda Hofstatter and Paul Potier and the concept they developed was Pool School in Paradise.

The idea was to offer a chance for pool enthusiasts to spend quality time socializing with and learning from real pocket billiard champions, with the most emphasis on learning. The school enrollment is limited to 16 students of various skill levels and is held over 5 days, generally in late summer.

August 28 to September 1, 2007 will be the 11th year of Pool School in Paradise and it has been very successful. In fact, almost half of the enrollment each year is repeat students and the school is often full by March.

The first year was on the island of Kauai in Hawaii and the last 9 years have been at the Granville Island Hotel in beautiful Vancouver, Canada.

Students are welcome and even encouraged to bring a friend or family member to share in the social experiences.

Thanks to Olhausen Billiards and Home Billiards we are able to set up very good pool tables and other equipment to help make the entire experience at PSIP professional and enjoyable.
