Petrinas to Host Qualifiers for Tournament Reality Series

Press Release

September 21, 2015 – Ajax, Ontario – Amateur Pool Player is an international tournament to crown the top amateur pool players.  Regional qualifiers will be held throughout North America, with the winners of each of these qualifiers coming together to compete for the top 16 spots.  The top 16 finalists will be housed by Amateur Pool Player as they are trained by professional pool players and instructors.  The top two finalists in the house will compete for the international crown of Top Amateur Pool Player. This will all be done in Florida, U.S.A, and televised through a syndicated reality TV series.  The series will follow the top amateurs through the final stages of their international title competition and capture the highs and unfortunately the lows of highly competitive billiards.

As of the time of this release, the only qualifiers in Canada will be held at Petrina's Taps and Billiards in Ajax, Ontario.  They are holding their qualifier on Sunday, September 27th, starting at 10:00am.  The tournament is open to 32 players.  But, this qualifier is different then most.  Where other qualifiers have each player pay a $50 US entry fee, Frank Kakouros, owner of Petrina's and also on the Executive of the Ontario Billiards and Snooker Association, is paying the entry fees for all players.

“Players with a sharp eye and smooth stroke have an opportunity to excel in this sport, “ says Kakouros.  “Tournaments such as the Amateur Pool Players Championship offers players the chance to make it to the next level and step up their game.”

Rob MacArthur, co-sponsor as League Operator for the Ontario Chapter of the North American Poolshooters Association, is the Tournament Director for this qualifier of Amateur Pool Player.  “This is a great way to promote and excel the game of billiards across Canada,” says MacArthur.

The first 32 players to commit their attendance will be in the tournament.  Players can enter the tournament by calling Frank Kakouros at 905-686-7474.
