Rack N Roll Annual 10 & 9 Ball Open Weekend 2nd & 3rd November

Sep 10, 2019 Keith Walkerdine

Rack N Roll 10 ball & 9 ball Opens. Click for more details.

On Saturday 2nd November the Rack N Roll will host its 11th Annual 10 Ball Open tournament and on the following day Sunday 3rd November its 17th Annual 9 Ball Open Tournament.

Last year in the annual 10 ball open Kev Simpson was the worthy winner to become only the third player to have won our annual 10 ball open and annual 9 ball open alongside Tommy Donlon and Ben Moore.

In the annual 9 ball open last year Benji Buckley won it for the third year straight and for the fourth time overall. Only one other person has one it more than once and that is Ben Moore who is a two time winner. If Benji enters can he win it for a fifth time or can someone new win their first or someone add a second title to their name.

It is only £42 (£20 to each tournament +£2 admin fee) to enter both the 10 ball and the 9 ball tournaments or £27 (£25 to tournament + £2 admin fee) for single entry into either.
