Pool masters battle for supremacy

HARARE - Top competitors from across Zimbabwe are set to battle for pool supremacy at the Carling Black Label national pool championship finals that take place at Zvishavane’s Kubatana Bar tomorrow.

At least 1 000 pool players participated in the provincial competitions that have now culminated in the finals, following on from the 800 that took part in last year’s competition.

Mudavanhu Pool Club’s Takura Chauraya will be under immense pressure to defend the title he won at last year’s edition at Raylton Sports Club in Bulawayo.

Stiff competition will be expected from the players, who emerged the best in their provincial knock out tournaments, as they are out to prove they are the very best at the craft.

The provincial championships were monitored by a member of the national pool association executive committee, who was assisted by the respective provincial councillor.

With a $1 000 winners price up for grabs and a host of prizes for top pool players it promises to be fiery contest

Delta Beverages, who are sponsoring the event through their Carling Black Label brand, said hosting the finals in Zvishavane would go a long way in generating pool interest in all corners of Zimbabwe.

“Delta’s vision to enhance sport and culture in the country is well partnered by the objectives of the national association and the players or supporters at large,” the brewing company said in a statement.

“The marriage between the two partner’s dates back to 9 years ago and each year has seen the tournament getting more organized and growing from strength to strength.

“It is a win-win game for the Carling Black Label drinkers as they enjoy big value for their money and entertainment. It is a smart source of income for quality players.

“We have no doubt that local talent is being afforded the chance for dreams as masters of the game to come to fruition.”
