Carling Black Label Pool tourney kicks off

HARARE - Organisers of the annual Delta Beverages-sponsored Carling Black Label (CBL) Pool Tournament expect a bigger and better one this year, having increased the areas for regional competitions from 10 to 24.

As a result, this year’s event is now expected to attract 2 000 players from last year’s 1 300 in both the women and men’s categories.

The tournament kicks off this afternoon across the country with the winners booking their places in the national finals set for Masvingo next month.

Delta Beverages marketing manager Patricia Murambinda explains the format to enter the tournament adding they remain committed to see the sport grow.

“For one to qualify they had to purchase 5 units of Carling Black Label from either the 375ml pack or 750ml pack, attach 5 crowns to an entry form and stood a chance of being drawn to play in the competitions,” she said.

“We have players who have benefited immensely from this marriage with pool through the CBL brand.

“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 marriage between the two partners dates back to more than 10 years ago and each year has seen the tournament getting more organised and growing from strength to strength.

“It is a win-win game for the CBL 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 their dreams to be masters of the game to come to fruition.”

Bindura, Bulawayo, Hwange, Marondera, Victoria Fall (October 1-2); Beitbridge, Chinhoyi, Chipinge, Chiredzi, Masving (October 8-9); Gwanda, Kadoma, Gweru, Murewa, Zvishavan (October 15-16); Chegutu, Mutoko, Mutare, Rusape (October 22-23); Chitungwiza, Harare, Karoi, Kwekwe (October 29-30)
