After six stops and the Grand finale event, season one of the Atlantic 9 Ball Tour is now complete! For our inaugural season, the Atlantic 9 Ball Tour averaged an astonishing 72 players per event!
During the weekend of 20-23 May, 73 of the Atlantic Canada’s best 9 ball players competed for over $12,500 in added money. I believe this might be the best event in Canada at the moment!
Here are the results from this exciting weekend of 9 Ball!
