Melissa Little and Jessica Massey

Midwest City, Oklahoma – Recently, WPBA Touring Professional Melissa Little AKA “The Viper” and longtime boyfriend and men’s professional Mark Haddad have been travelling to the local Boys and Girls clubs throughout the Midwest teaching kids the different games, performing trick shots and participating in challenge the pro matches. “It is essential to introduce kids of all ages to participate playing the games we all love, in the sport of Pocket Billiards!” says Little. 
Along the way, Mark and Melissa noticed how much each facility is in need for billiards equipment and partnered up with Jessica Massey, owner of Jamaica Joe’s in Oklahoma City, OK to donate some new cues and full sets of pool balls to the biggest facility in the OK area.  “What Melissa and Mark are doing for the local Boys and Girls Clubs is awesome, and if we as pool room owners can help the growth of youth in our industry, then I am all in”! Says Massey.  
Dan Tull, owner of Shooters Billiards in Olathe, KS also donated extra pool balls to be signed by the duo for the kids at the Olathe facility. “I love that Melissa is giving back to the next generation and I will support her in anyway that I can,” says Tull. 
Melissa and Mark will continue their personal quests to become bigger and better ambassadors of our sport and if you would like to help out and/or you’re a pool room owner and want to donate please contact Melissa directly at or call 720-296-5395.
