Catalonians invite NI players

The Catalonia Blackball Festival of Pool starts on Saturday 20th March 2010 with a party night which will be attended by Pool players from all over Europe. Finals will be held on Friday 26th March at 8pm followed by a "going away party" with departure on Saturday 27th March.

All main Pool events during the week will not start to 6pm, giving everyone plenty of time during the day for leisure or relaxation, such as a trip into Barcelona, Salou or Portaventura where you can enjoy Europes largest waterpark. Or you can just chill out at the nearby beach which is only 2 minutes walk away. There will also be a trip to the Nou Camp for the Barcelona v Osasuna La Liga match on the Wednesday. Golfing, karting and wine tasting at a local vineyard are also on the "to do list"

Main Pool Competitions are, Mens, Ladies, Mixed Doubles, Seniors, Cabbages and a 3 Person Team event which will consist of 1x 'A' listed player, 1x Lady or Junior and 1x other player drawn out of a hat. The venue is fantastic and a friendly welcome is guaranteed. What more could you want !!!! A great holiday with Pool Comps at night. The cost is 299 euros.
