English 8 Ball Pool (Blackball Rules) - The Savanna 250 Double Dare

9th-11th December 2016 / Savanna Pool & Snooker Club, Manchester, England


​SAVANNA 250 DOUBLE DARE - THE LOWDOWN


Off the back of the very successful Savanna Elite 500 back in the Spring, the Independent Pool Company are getting ready for their latest big event with the Savanna 250 Double Dare which runs next month from the terrific Manchester based venue. 

The tournament is a Pro-Am featuring premier players from all four corners of the UK currently

outside the elite ranks of the IPA and UKPT tours. 

This competitive 64 player field features entries travelling from England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland; a 'Home Nations' feel for the long weekend. Blackball Rules will be in action, although competitors from both sides of the English Pool divide will be taking part. 

A unique and refreshing format will be used for the event, that effectively sees players entered into two separate single elimination tournaments throughout. As well as this, there will also be a 'Grand Final' for the best performers across both previous events.  

With £2,500 to the winner of each leg, and a £1,500 bonus for the Grand Final, should someone claim 'The Treble', they will bank a cool £6,500 payday. 

It really is a mouthwatering line-up with a gluttony of former World/European Champions, Internationals from both rule sets, big tournament winners and money match specialists. 

This three day festival of Blackball Pool is being sponsored by Swift Taxis, Aztec Ltd and IQ Pool. 

You can catch all of the live action courtesy of Beard Productions, who will expertly be covering two live streamed tables for the duration from the multi discipline club.
