The Leisure World Pool Club will hold its first tournament of the year on Monday, July 19, at 6 p.m. in Clubhouse 2. There are six new Brunswick tables, which will allow for more people in the tournament. Participants will play five rounds of eight ball. Partners will be drawn randomly to form twoperson teams, with a man and a woman on each team whenever possible; players should arrive 10 minutes early so names can be drawn. Partners will alternate shots in a Dutch Doubles format, and Billiard Congress of America rules will apply.
The entry fee is $3, and all prize money will be divided among the three teams with the most wins.
For this tournament, players do not have to be members of the Pool Club, but all contestants must be LW residents. Anyone can join the Pool Club at the tournament; dues are $10 per year, with the membership good until November 2022. The Pool Club is no longer a men’s club; all residents are welcome to join.
Anyone in need of a good pool cue should show up at 5:30 p.m. to bid in a silent auction. The minimum bid on cues is $5, or $10 for cues with cases.
Since July 19 will be the grand opening tournament for the new poolroom, the club will provide pizza and soft drinks for the players. There is limited availability to play, so interested parties should email Dave Silva at [email protected] prior to the tournament.
