Ozone Billiards has been committed to supporting the billiards industry and youth education, regardless of the economic climate. Ozone Billiards has recently committed to becoming the presenting sponsor for the Association of College Unions International’s 2009 National Colligate 9-Ball Championship.
By sponsoring this event, Ozone Billiards is helping billiard players from more than 600 colleges and universities participate in regional and national tournaments. Students will have a chance to become tournament champions and possibly to receive one the five different scholarships that will be awarded as a result of this sponsorship.
“Once we heard that ACUI needed a sponsor, we felt it was our responsibility to support them as one of the leaders in the billiards industry,” Ozone Billiards President Shawn Gargano stated. “We believe that these young adults are not only the future for billiards, but also the future of our country. Through our sponsorship, we are able to foster in them a passion for billiards while helping them to continue their education.”
During the last two weekends in February, ACUI will hold regional recreation tournaments featuring 9-ball billiards in 14 locations throughout the United States. Participants in the national tournament must first compete in these qualifying events. Specific dates and details about eligibility and registration can be found at www.acui.org/programs/student
