Pool: Two Bute places up for grabs in UK Open

Bute’s pool players are to have the chance to qualify for the UK Open Pool Championship – and to compete for a slice of a prize fund of more than £13,000.

The Isle of Bute Pool League has accepted the offer of two places at the finals, which take place at the Normandy Hotel in Renfrew on September 21 and 22.

Entry into the IoBPL qualifiers for the Ladbrokes UK Open is open to all of the IoBPL area; entry into the qualifiers will be £10 a head, and if the entry field is greater than ten players, excess entry fees will be used to help toward travel costs to the venue and prize money for the two Bute qualifiers.

The deadline for entries into the local qualifiers is Friday, June 28 - for more information on the competition, make sure you don’t miss the new issue of The Buteman, on sale from Thursday, June 6.
