MOSCONI CUP RETURNS TO ALEXANDRA PALACE WITH FANS THIS DEC 7-10
Van Boening to Vice-Captain USA as Jones returns as Captain


The 2021 Mosconi Cup will take place at Alexandra Palace, London in front of spectators this December 7-10, and Shane van Boening will Vice Captain Team USA.

Jeremy Jones will return as America’s captain, while Europe’s winning partnership of Captain Alex Lely and Vice Karl Boyes will be hoping to lead their team to a title defence in front of the fans who missed out on a landslide European 11-3 victory in 2020.

Tickets will go on sale later this summer with full details to be announced shortly. Fans can sign up to the free Matchroom Pool Club to receive regular updates and priority ticket access at matchroompool.com.

After a bruising defeat, Jones has re-enforced his side by promoting Van Boening to playing-Vice Captain. Both rosters will be made up of their team’s top two players on the Matchroom Pool World Ranking, alongside three captain’s pick wildcards.

“I am looking forward to it,” said Van Boening. “I am all about team working and trying to help players get better. I can hear London calling my name, so I will be ready for that. I am really excited for it. It is one of the best tournaments in the world, the Mosconi Cup is one and only.”

Emily Frazer, Matchroom Multi Sport Managing Director, said: “The crowds missed out last year so it is time to get back to Alexandra Palace. We are looking at our seating capacity and tickets will be on sale shortly. The arena will be slightly different and we are excited to share those plans.

“We have Jeremy Jones as USA Captain, Shane as his vice, and Alex Lely as Europe’s Captain with Karl as his Vice. We are in the team we are in and normally more players would come through the rankings but this year both teams will have two players qualify off the Matchroom World Rankings, with three wildcards for each team.”

Full ticketing details will be announced shortly. For all the latest news and announcements follow Matchroom Pool on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Instagram.

CAZOO AND MATCHROOM EXPAND PARTNERSHIP DEAL
…adding 3 new Darts 3 and more Snooker event sponsorships


Cazoo, the UK’s leading online car retailer, which makes ordering a car as simple and seamless as buying any other product online today, announces that it has expanded its partnership with Matchroom to become the principal sponsor of the Grand Slam of Darts, World Cup of Darts and European Championship alongside snooker’s Masters, UK Championship and Champion of Champions.

Under a new multi-year deal with the Professional Darts Corporation (PDC), the trio of high-profile darts events will see prominent Cazoo branding on the stage, players' shirts, in the playing arena and on interview backdrops with extensive live TV coverage through Sky Sports and global broadcasters.

The Cazoo World Cup of Darts will take place from September 9-12 in Jena, Germany, where 32 nations will compete in two-player teams. The Cazoo European Championship, live on ITV4, and Sky Sports-televised Cazoo Grand Slam of Darts will follow as two of the highlights of the Autumn’s darting calendar.

Cazoo has also extended its deal with the World Snooker Tour (WST) and added the Masters, the UK Championship and the Champion of Champions to its current portfolio of snooker properties where it is currently the main sponsor of the Players Championship, Tour Championship and World Grand Prix.

The Champion of Champions promoted by Matchroom Multi Sport, brings together 16 tournament Champions from the past year. The UK Championship is snooker’s longest running ranking event other than the World Championship, and is part of the sport’s Triple Crown series, as is the Masters in London which boasts an elite field of the world’s top 16 players.

Each of these prestigious snooker tournaments, broadcast to a global television audience of up to 500 million fans, will see Cazoo branding on the main set, players’ waistcoats and interview and media conference backdrops. Cazoo will also become the headline sponsor at this year’s FishOMania event, to be staged on Saturday July 24.

These latest tournaments add to Cazoo’s growing portfolio of sports sponsorships which now includes football (Everton, Aston Villa & the EFL), cricket (The Hundred), rugby (Welsh Rugby Union & 2021 Rugby League World Cup), golf (European Tour) and horseracing (Epsom Derby & St Leger).

Cazoo is pioneering the shift to online car buying and, since launching in 2019, has sold over 25,000 cars to consumers across the UK who have embraced the selection, transparency and convenience of buying quality used cars entirely online. Cazoo is planning to launch in France & Germany by the end of 2021.

Alex Chesterman OBE, Founder & CEO of Cazoo said, “We are excited to be expanding our partnership with Matchroom to launch the Cazoo World Cup of Darts, Cazoo Grand Slam of Darts and Cazoo European Championship with the Professional Darts Corporation later this year and to be extending our deal with the World Snooker Tour to launch three additional Cazoo snooker tournaments. This wider partnership with Matchroom will help to further grow our audience as we build Cazoo into a household brand and continue to deliver the best car buying experience to darts and snooker fans across the UK and Europe.”

Barry Hearn OBE, President of Matchroom said: “It’s fantastic to have a brand like Cazoo involved with us in both snooker and darts and we have thoroughly enjoyed working with Alex and his team, who have proven to be creative and innovative partners. We are now partnering with Cazoo on nine of the most prestigious tournaments and eagerly-awaited events on the snooker and darts calendars as well as for FishOMania. We look forward to introducing the Cazoo brand to our loyal fanbase and to a long and productive relationship.”

Dynamic Billard St. Johann i.P. Open 2021, Austria

Excitement in St. Johann


With around 192 male and 40 female athletes coming to St. Johann, the excitement is high in the city and at the venue. After a break of over 16 months, the athletes are fired up for the competition to start again in Europe.

This is the longest break from competition in the history of the sport. It will be interesting to see who has used this "time out" to hone their skills when they start their matches tomorrow morning at 09:00 local time.!The event will have a few special features.

Due to official regulations, certain safety standards must be met. A cordoned-off area has been set up where athletes must be before their matches begin.

Regular testing must be carried out according to local laws for athletes who are not yet fully vaccinated. The timetable has also been increased to 2 hours per match to allow for the appropriate security measures to be carried out between matches.

The hygiene concept has been thoroughly thought through and adapted to ensure that the event can be held as safe as possible for all participants.

As in previous times, more than 30 nations are once again represented at the competition. The battle for prize money and ranking points will be fought at the highest level. 20 tables are set up and can all be viewed via live stream at kozoom.com!

For further information, please contact our press office @ press@epbf.com

Predator Sankt Johann im Pongau Women Open 2021

18.06.2021

Predator Women’s Euro-Tour about to start


The girls are back in town! After more than a year of absence, the coloured balls will be rolling again tomorrow in the women's field of participants. The Predator St. Johann i.P. Open 2021 will be presented by "Snow Space Salzburg" this year. The tournament will start at 09:00 local time. The field of participants consists of 40 women from 16 nations. Unfortunately, some of the top female athletes have not managed to find their way to St. Johann due to the current travel restrictions. Nevertheless, it is a really strong field of participants, which promises thrilling and exciting encounters.

In the women's competition, it will be interesting to see who has used the time off to sharpen their game and who has not. No.1 seed Oliwia Zalewska from Poland will certainly try to build on her most recent performances and make up more ground in the women's rankings. Her first match will be at 11:00 local time against the winner of Denise Steinmetz (GER) and Seycheline Knapp (AUT). The picture shows Zalewska after winning the Predator Antalya Open 2019 in Turkey in November 2019.

Both events, the men’s and the women’s tournament will finish on Sunday afternoon. All matches can be viewed at www.kozoom.com

Press release from the Swedish Billiard Federation

Stockholm, June 23, 2021

Pool player Henrik Larsson voted into the Swedish Parasport Hall of Fame

At the General Assembly of the Swedish Parasport Federation on May 21, 2021, pool player Henrik Larsson was elected to the Swedish Parasport Hall of Fame, thanks to his great achievements within the billiard sport and community. Henrik is the 26th member of the Swedish Parasport Hall of Fame (PHoF).

49-year-old Henrik ”Henke” Larsson is a well-known profile within the billiards community, both in Sweden and abroad. Throughout his career he has won many big titles and is considered one of the greatest wheelchair players of all time. His talent, spirit and positive attitude has inspired a whole generation of new players to pick up a cue. Henrik is also known for his work as an ambassador for the sport, and for his contributions within the para community as an instructor and role model for the disabled.

The Swedish Parasport Hall of Fame aspire to honor persons who, through their achievements in sports and/or as leaders, have played a crucial role in developing the Swedish or international parasport. They also aim to create, preserve, and make accessible historic documentation about these people and their achievements for the rest of the world.

Members of the PHoF are elected every two years. To be qualified the nominee has to have considerable international merits in their sport, as well as being a pioneer within Swedish or international parasport. It is also mandatory that the nominee has displayed fair play and integrity, and serves as a role model for others. In our opinion, Henrik fills all of these criteria with ease.

Here is the motivation from the Swedish Parasport Federation:
“Henrik Larsson, billiards, is member number 26 in the Parasport Hall of Fame.

Henrik Larsson belongs to the world elite in billiards and has an impressive record of merits. His breakthrough came in 1993, when he won the first official European Championship for wheelchair billiards, and after that the successes have been piling up. In total he has won six world championships, twelve European championships and 20 national championships.

He was also nominated to the award ‘Disabled athlete of the year’ in 2018, at the biggest Swedish annual sports gala Idrottsgalan.

Henrik Larsson is a true role model, a great parasport athlete and a worthy member of the parasport Hall of Fame.”

Here you can find a link to the motivation (in Swedish):

https://www.parasport.se/omforbundet/Omoss/HallofFame/MedlemmariHallofFame/HenrikLarsso n/

The appointment was announced at the Parasport Federation’s general assembly on May 21, 2021, which was held digitally. Henrik will therefore receive his award at a later occasion when conditions allow.

The Swedish Billiard Federation and its board are immensely proud of “Henke”, one of our greatest representatives of all time, and we wish him the best of luck in his continued career.

For the players, to have a crowd and an atmosphere makes such a difference.

“We know there is a huge amount of interest in snooker in Leicester and the surrounding area, with Mark Selby and several other tour players from the city proving to be great role models. The Morningside is an excellent venue and I hope to see it packed out for the seven days.”

Fans can be assured that all necessary precautions will be taken at events to minimise the risk of Covid-19 transmission, keeping safety as our highest priority.

Dr. Dave Honored with PBIA Jerry Briesath Instructor of the Year Award
    
Superior, Colo. – July 6, 2021. Every year, the Professional Billiard Instructors Association (formerly the BCA Instructor program) honors a PBIA instructor who has made exceptional contributions to the goals of the organization. This year, PBIA Advanced Instructor Dr. Dave Alciatore has been selected as the winner of the prestigious Jerry Briesath Instructor of the Year Award.

"I am humbly honored and very flattered to be selected for this award,” said this year’s award recipient Dr. Dave Alciatore. “It feels good to know people appreciate and value the work I do. I respect Jerry Briesath and all the past award recipients, and I am very happy to be included on a list with them. Thank you!"

Dr. Dave is a retired mechanical engineering professor (1991-2020) from Colorado State University in Fort Collins, Colorado. He was a passionate teacher and an experienced textbook author, and he has received many awards for his contributions. His teaching and writing experience helped him develop skills for presenting and illustrating difficult concepts in a concise and understandable way.

After retiring from teaching at the university Dr. Dave decided to go into billiard instruction full-time. Now, Dr. Dave is a PBIA Advanced Instructor and an instructional author. He wrote the book “The Illustrated Principles of Pool and Billiards” and has published numerous instructional videos, including the “Video Encyclopedia” series. All of his instructional products are available for purchase at: DrDaveBilliards.com. Dr. Dave also created and maintains the popular billiards resource website billiards.colostate.edu, and is Dean and co-founder of the website Billiard University (BU). He was instrumental in developing the BU assessment tools, rating system, and instructional resources at BilliardUniversity.org. Dr. Dave has also been a long-time monthly instructional columnist for Billiards Digest magazine and an active participant in online billiards forums and social media. He is a devoted authority and an expert in understanding and teaching the physics of the game. Dr. Dave offers private lessons and intensive courses through his websites Dr. Dave’s Pool School and the BU Summer School Boot Camps. He also has an active Facebook page and YouTube Channel.

“Dave Alciatore has had perhaps the widest impact of any PBIA instructor recently, particularly through social media,” said Bob Jewett, PBIA committee chair. “On YouTube he has had over 9 million views in the last year, alone, and his channel has climbed to 200,000 subscribers. One recent video in which he presents and explains in detail amazing shots from tournaments has had a million views. He has also contributed greatly to the resources that the PBIA offers its members.”

The PBIA Instructor of the Year Award is given annually to honor exceptional contributions by a PBIA Instructor. The PBIA will begin accepting nominations for the 2021 PBIA Jerry Briesath Instructor of the Year in the spring of next year. At such time, a nomination form will be made available to all PBIA Instructors. The PBIA Honors Committee then reviews and evaluates all nominations to select the annual winner.

Jeanette Lee Honored with Billiard Congress of America 2020 President’s Award
    
Superior, Colo., - July 12, 2021. Each year the chairman of the Billiard Congress of America Board of Directors recognizes an outstanding individual who has made significant contributions to the billiard industry with the presentation of the BCA President’s Award. 2020/2021 BCA Chairman Ivan Lee has chosen to recognize Jeanette “The Black Widow” Lee with the 2020 BCA President’s Award.

Born in Brooklyn, N.Y., Lee is arguably the most recognizable pool player in the world. Her ability to shine a spotlight not only on the herself as a player but also the entire sport of pool and billiards is unparalleled.

“I’m extremely honored to receive this prestigious award,” said Jeanette Lee. “I have always worked hard to be both a serious player and a great role model. To be recognized like this means so much to me. I really hope to continue in this sport and stay deserving of this honor. Thank you, thank you!”

“Jeanette has elevated the visibility and the perception of the sport in ways not previously seen,” said BCA Chairman Ivan Lee. “She continues to be one of the most recognized pool players in the world, and throughout her journey, she has not only competed at the sport’s highest levels, she’s elevated the sport’s perception and provided unmatched exposure to pocket billiards. As one of the sport’s great ambassadors, Jeanette has been tremendously committed to giving back. Junior players have always held a special place in her heart and she has used that passion to assist the Billiard Education Foundation with its events, hosted team camps for rising junior players and assisted Team USA in the Atlantic Challenge Cup, just to name a few of her on-going contributions to the game.”

As a promoter and marketer, Lee parlayed her talent, her great looks and her natural appeal into a business empire that has resulted in untold amounts of exposure for both her and the sport. After boldly declaring her intention to become No. 1 in 1993, Lee wasted little time, winning three WPBA Classic Tour events, the U.S. Open 9-Ball Championship and the WPBA Nationals in 1994. The incredible string of wins vaulted Lee to No. 1 and earned her Player-of-the-Year honors from both Billiards Digest and Pool & Billiard Magazine.

Lee won seven more Classic Tour titles from ’95-’99, and added two ESPN titles: the Tournament of Champions and the Ultimate Shootout. In 2001, Lee earned the gold medal at the World Games in Akita, Japan. She has won a dozen titles in the 2000s, including the WPBA Florida Classic and BCA Open Championship in 2004. Lee’s accomplishments at the table are all the more impressive considering the physical ailments (scoliosis, arthritis, bursitis and more) that have resulted in more than a dozen surgical procedures. Lee is currently battling stage 4 ovarian cancer that has metastasized throughout her body.

Off the table, Lee’s contributions and clout have been recognized in her 1998 selection as WPBA Sportsperson of the Year and her ranking as one of the industry’s most powerful people in the bi-annual Billiards Digest Power Poll in 2001, ’03, ’05 and ’07. She was featured in ESPN’s annual “The Body Issue,” magazine in 2010, and she has appeared in numerous movies, television commercials and has been a guest on countless national television shows. She served as National Spokesperson for The Scoliosis Association and on the board of the Women’s Sports Foundation. Lee was inducted into the Billiard Congress of America Hall of Fame in 2013 and the Asian Hall of Fame in 2015.

Turkish Masters Snooker Postponed

The new Turkish Masters world ranking event has been postponed until March 2022.

The tournament was due to take place from September 27 to October 3 in Antalya, but has now been put back to March. The qualifying rounds have also been postponed until 2022.

Turkey remains on the UK Government’s red list for travel, and the country is currently battling severe wildfires. Based on these factors, and in consultation with the Turkish Billiard Federation and Big Break Promotions, WST has taken the difficult decision to postpone the event.

The qualifying rounds of the BetVictor English Open and BetVictor Scottish Open tournaments will be brought forward to September, around the dates previously occupied by the Turkish event.

WST Chairman Steve Dawson said: “It is a huge disappointment for ourselves and the Turkish Billiard Federation to have to postpone this event and I am sure the players will share that sentiment, as well as the fans in Turkey who had looked forward to seeing their heroes for the first time.

“We fully intend to be in Antalya in March. In the mean time our thoughts are with the Turkish people and those affected by wildfires in country.

“We are living through tough times, constantly facing the challenges of travel and commercial restrictions on a global scale. Our sport has coped much better than most over the past 18 months and we continue to strive to provide the best possible calendar of events for our players and fans. Despite postponing Turkey, we have a packed schedule for most of the season, while our worldwide linear and digital audiences continue to grow.”

Ersan Ercan, President of the Turkish Billiard Federation, added: “It is unfortunate that we have to postpone this event due to circumstances beyond our control. We look forward to welcoming WST, players and officials to the beautiful destination of Antalya in March.”

WST has agreed a four-year deal with the Turkish Billiard Federation and Big Break Promotions to stage the Turkish Masters every season until at least 2024/2025. Overall prize money will start at £500,000 and increase each year.

Antalya is renowned as one of Europe’s outstanding destinations, known for its culture, history and ideal location on the Mediterranean coast.

The revised WST calendar for the 2021/22 season will be announced shortly.

Seybert's Welcomes Penguin Amusements Into The Family

We are very pleased to announce that Seybert's has completed the acquisition of Penguin Amusements.

Owners of coin-operated billiard tables across the globe know Penguin as the first choice for replacement rails and other parts for their table. Now as part of the Seybert's family of brands, Penguin can reach more consumers and businesses who are looking to take their playing experience up a notch.

Seybert's has been selling Penguin rails for years, and now with the partnership cemented, we look forward to expanding our offering of replacement rails in the coming weeks.

Penguin Amusement is a manufacturing and retail company based in Mt. Pleasant, Michigan. They specialize in the production and distribution of pool table replacement parts and offer a number of additional products and services.

We are excited to have such a talented group of craftsmen as part of the Seybert's team. These skilled team members are a big reason this business has been so successful, for so long.
