Viking Tour Announces Tour Card Changes

The Viking Cue 9-Ball Tour, the largest of the regional billiard tours in the U.S., with over $90,000 in added prize money each year announced that they have made the following changes to the acceptance of women and junior players in our open events. The changes will take effect immediately. To encourage participation in our sport by non-professional women and junior players (Jr = age 17 & under), the Viking Cue 9-Ball Tour will now be offering them Free entry to all of our local $1,000- or $2,000-added events.

As of December 1, 2006, women and junior players will no longer be required to purchase a tour card. Tour cards will be optional for those players but will still be required if they wish to compete in our larger events or if they wish to compete in our amateur events.

This means that there will be absolutely no fees for women or junior players while competing in the local $1,000- or $2,000-added Viking Cue Open 9-Ball Tour events.
