9 Ball Pool officially returns to the West Midlands. Rileys Sports Bar, situated in Hobs Moat Road, Solihull, has a proud history of hosting and supporting 9 ball events, dating right back to the early days of the GB9. Andy Carter, Daryl Garland and Matt Hawthorn, collectively known as Solihull 9 Ball, have worked tirelessly to ensure that quality American Pool tournaments return to this great club.

Whether you’re a top ranked player on our national tour, or just starting out in the game, our events feature players of all ages and abilities. Our series of events combine 9 and 10 ball tournaments and involve up to 48 players taking part in each. The format we use provides players a minimum of 2 matches using double elimination brackets to reduce the field down to 16. After that it’s a straight knock out – with the top 8 players all paid out based on final positions.

Some of the country’s most talented players take part in our tournaments, but many of our players are pool enthusiasts wanting to test themselves against the best. All of our events are played over one day, with all participants playing off scratch.
