Canadian 9-Ball Tour Confirms Dates
The Canadian 9-Ball Tour, sponsored by Cineplex Entertainment and Chapters-Indigo Bookstores, has now confirmed the dates and venues for each stop on the tour. The complete schedule is below and may also be seen at the official Tour website: Canadian9balltour.com.
New for this year are several improvements to the tour. First, each stop now contains $10,000 in added money for a total of $80,000 added for the season. And there is now a charity tie-in as the Boys and Girls Club has been named the official Tour Charity and will share in the proceeds of each tour stop.
Also, as the tour is now open to all international players and not just Canadians, the fields are being limited to the first sixty-four entrants to pay their entry fees. First come, first served, so get your entries in early (via the tour website) in order to insure yourself a berth in the fields. No spots will be reserved until paid.
The first event will be held October 5-7 at Bigwigs Billiards in Newmarket, Ontario (just north of Toronto). All dates were chosen in order that they not conflict with other important tournaments. It is hoped that promoters of new events will maintain and encourage this mutual respect.
