2018 Supreme Pool Series Choose Strachan & Aramith
2018 will see the new Supreme Pool Series offering the biggest ever prize money in English Pool. The newly expanded series organised by Lee Kendall has total prize money of £152,250 and the Series Grand Final winner will bank a remarkable £51,000 first prize.
The new series, sponsored by Supreme Pool Tables, will be held at the Players Pool & Snooker Lounge in Newcastle Under Lyme over 5 events throughout 2018. The very best players from World and Blackball rules will be battling it out for the title and the £51k prize. The big money has pulled in big names from across the various branches of English pool and the 9-ball world including Darren Appleton, Jayson Shaw, Chris Melling, Phil Harrison and Tom Cousins.
The event’s creator, Lee Kendall said: “It gives me the great pleasure to announce that the world’s leading woolen pool cloth manufacturer Strachan and the world’s best ball manufacturer, Aramith, will be the sole and exclusive equipment partners for the Supreme Pool Series.
We will be playing on a new Strachan napped, woolen, cloth throughout the Supreme Pool Series which will give our series its own identity and is designed to give the very best speed, response and control. It is the Players choice! We need the very best conditions for the very best players.”
Stuart Gardiner (UK & Ireland Sales Manager for Strachan, Aramith and Simonis) talking about the new Supreme Events said: “Strachan Cloth is a long-term supporter of English Pool at all levels and the new Supreme Players Pool Events is an exciting new series of tournaments. Big prize money and some exciting new rules will breathe new life into the sport. Credit to Lee Kendall for trying to take the game to the next level and also for delivering prize money that will really get the players from all pool backgrounds excited”.
He added: “Working with Lee as an advisor, Strachan have introduced a new lighter, faster and more responsive 6811 Tournament cloth, in a new colour, that offers the modern player the ultimate in speed, control and response. The new cloth will really give the series its own identity. Lee and his team have some great new ideas and I am sure that the new Supreme Tournaments will be a huge success going forward”.
