"Ladies Night" in a "Man's World"

We would like to start out by saying thank you to Josh Soulliere and Bo's Bar and Billiards for hosting the tournaments, and to the gracious Bo's staff for all of their service!

We want to express our deepest and most heartfelt appreciation for those who attended our "Ladies Night" and "Man's World" Events. Your support means everything to us, and hasemade us the longest running Tour in RI, over 12 Years Strong!

We would also like to thank our Sponsors:

Our Title Sponsor: Iwan Simonis, as well as Aramith Premium Balls, Diamond Billiard Products, Inc., McDermott Cues, Massé Apparel, KAMUI, Omega Billiards, ACME Cases, Bulletproof Break Tips, Narragansett Brewery, Team Straightpooleye, Maine Pool Table Services, and our Official Tour Ambassador Charles "The Inventor" Lakey.


We had some women who traveled over 2 hours to join our 2nd Ladies Event, and we gladly added almost $200! It was fun-filled and competitive all in the same breath.


There were many close battles fought among the competition. Sharon Marie had the Hot seat and has been playing lights out. However, Aundria Reynolds turned up the heat and double dipped for the win. Coming in 3rd Liinda Huynh. All great and fierce competitors.


In the "Man's World" tournament, we had a diverse cast of players ranging from A to C class, and it was a very entertaining event to watch. We added $100 to that event as well. Bill Cote stood victorious.


Newcomer and First-time tournament player, Ainsley Ottilige, at only 11 years old decided to contend. She has the fierceness of a Lion and the eye of a Hawk.

Our tour decided almost instantly to sponsor her and will seek collaboration with another sponsor. We believe she is a prodigy. She has only been playing three weeks and had taken a few games from her competitors. The women and men alike were helpful and her attendance was well-received.


Luis Rios, another sponsored player of the tour, attended and placed just out of the cash. He is a true gentleman and competitor. We are so proud to have him on our team.


Our very own Walter Carpenter is now sponsored by Massé apparel during his stay this season with the tour as well. Another collaborative effort with our tour and Massé. Walt did a great job alongside me and with the team running the tournaments.


We have also secured Iwan Simonis as a title sponsor until the end of tour season 2021.


Congratulations to Sharon Marie for winning our raffle (valued at over $125).
