The Universities Pool Council is pleased to announce the details of its programme for
the coming season with competitions to decide the champions at individual, team and
representative level. With many previously strong teams losing key players due to
graduation and the expected participation from new teams, the season ahead looks
to be wide open.
The season kicks off with the UPC Nine-ball Championships over the weekend of
25-27 November 2011 in Riley's in Liverpool. Defending champions University of
Manchester will be in attendance with the primary aim of retaining their silverware,
however they will face stiff competition from a variety of angles.
Vauxhall Holiday Park, Great Yarmouth will again play host to the BUCS-UPC
Eight-Ball Championship, Trophy, Shield and Individual Championship concurrently
on the weekend of 23-26 February 2012. This epic event will see last year's
Championship winners Nottingham University bidding to defend their team crown,
and an anticipated field of over 400 students seeking to emulate last year’s champion
Will Jerram in the Individual Championship.
The season wraps up with the representative event – Student Eight-ball Pool Home
Internationals – held in Manchester on 20-21 April 2012, incorporating the BUCS
Home Nations. Team Ireland, buoyed by their impressive showing in Belfast in 2011-
12, will be keen to defend their title against their United Kingdom counterparts.
