    Sponsoring a Pool Comp

    I live in Ballarat Australia, and have fallen in love with 9Ball:) . My local pool hall put in a Brunswick table to test the waters, but the owners didn't do anything to promote the game. The problem is that UK 8Ball rules in our area, and with no incentive to the local players, they aren't...

    Advice for an up and coming kid

    Just thought I'd ask the forum for some ideas. A local 17YO kid here in Ballarat is looking at having a go at 9-ball. All he's played so far is UK 8-ball, and is good, currently ranked 2nd in the world under 18 and 4th in Australia Open. The reason for the change is that the local pool hall is...

    IPT Players Cues Survey

    As some would have read, there is a best hitting cues survey going on in the main forum, and it got me thinking about what cues the participants in the ITP are going to be using.
