POOL has always been seen as a township game, played over sundowners amid great competition.
This, however, is about to change as BFF Events is taking the game to another level when players can compete for a title.
They are introducing the Kasi Table Pool Tournaments, when players between the ages of 18 and 35 play for the title of champion.
The tournaments will focus on township communities where the game is seen as a hobby rather than a professional sport.
“In our launch and first event tournament of this nature, we will be taking this game only to eThekwini Municipality townships during the remaining months of 2016. Next year we will take the games throughout KZN and eventually throughout all South African townships,” said BFF Events COO, Miss Percy.

eThekwini Municipality townships include Clermont, KwaNdengezi, Phoenix, Wentworth, Umlazi, KwaMashu, Lamontville, Chesterville and the Durban CBD.
Venues for tournaments will be the KwaMashu Sports Centre, Clermont Sports Centre, Phoenix Sports Hall, Wentworth Sports Hall and Durban University of Technology Sports Centre.

About 30 matches will be played each day for eight days. Clermont held the first tournaments last week.

The tournaments will be officiated by referees from the National Blackball Federation (NBF).
Players will compete for a title in the men’s category and one in the women’s category, and the winner will walk away with a cash prize.

For more information, contact Miss Percy on 083 957 2035 or email
