Top pool players converge in Byo

HARARE - At least 80 pool players from across the country are expected to converge at Raylton Sports Club for this year’s national finals of the Carling Black Label Pool Tournament this weekend.

Over 60 players are expected to battle for honours in the men’s category while in the women’s section 16 participants are set to fight for the title.

This year witnessed 1 300 players participating in the provincial competitions that have now culminated in the finals.

Last year, Chitungwiza-based Obert Nyarumwe beat Paul Mutize from Bulawayo 2-0 in the final to win this title.

The pool masters will battle for $1 000 in the men’s category while in the women’s section they will fight to walk away with $500.

Zimbabwe Pool Association president Trust Chifadza said they were now ready to host the event.

“We have put everything together so that we try and make the best out of this event, we are happy that this year’s event will be bigger compared to the previous years as we are expecting,” he said.

“We have players who have benefited immensely from this marriage.”

Delta Beverages, who are sponsoring the event through their Carling Black Label brand, said this year’s competition is promising to be intense.

“This year, the national competitions promise to set new records as the regional competition players were drawn across the country at the mid-promotion draws for the Carling Black Label pool promotion held on the 28th of August 2015,” the brewing company said in a statement.
