SUPREME 2019 WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS

 

2019 Dual Arena

 

Since the years when we had our final stages of the World 8Ball Pool Championships shown on BSKYB with tiered seating for the final 2 days, we have had to change our presentation in line with the finance available.

We are delighted to announce that we are returning to the days of the big arena with tiered seating but not just for 2 days, 2019 will see the New Arena and tiered seating introduced from day one until Finals Day, a total of 10 days of World Class 8Ball Pool.

Plus we are "Live Streaming" in our main arena both team and individual matches, throughout the championships to allow the whole world an opportunity to see their national players in competition at the World Championships.

See above the layout of our new arena showing Supreme Pool Tables as the sponsor for the 2019 Championships.

All of our Champions will be at this years event to defend the titles they won last year, with the exception of Luke Gilbert the Junior champion who has moved up to the U/23 level where he will be up against Irelands Cormac Kerr, current champion and one of the major stars of the future.

Dave Beaumont will be seeking another win in the Wheelchair event where he will be hotly contested by three previous holders of the world title.

Ladies champion Barbara Taylor is looking to retain her title but, as always, there are several outstanding contenders including 2017 champion Amy Beauchamp. The ladies event continues to grow with a record number of players competing at this years finals.

In the Seniors section Chris Mills will be favourite after a brilliant performance last year, winning both the World Seniors Championships and World Seniors Masters. However with a record entry since the World Senior event started, there are a lot of players from around the world very capable of competing for the title.

Mick Hill is back defending the Mens title and seeking to take his total to six wins. Phil Harrison runner-up in the last 2 years may have something to say about that, along with a host of top world talent. Without doubt Mick is the firm favourite, having earned his position as the greatest player in the history of 8Ball Pool.

Find below the "Live Streaming" programme for the final two days of what promises to be another great World 8Ball Pool Championships.

Spectators are more than welcome to join us for the entire 10 days of competition. Free entry for all of the event with a small charge for tickets to the main arena on Finals day, Friday 28th June.

IT IS WITH VERY DEEP REGRET THAT THE WEPF..
Announce the very sad news of the passing of John McMahon from Ireland. Aged just 46 years old, John was an extremely popular player no matter where he went. He will be very sadly missed not only as one of the nicest players ever to have graced our events, but also as a friend to many who met him over the years. Our sincerest condolences go out to his family and friends at this very sad time.
