Sophie Pool Champion LARGE

Sophie said, 'This was the first time that I had attended the BUCS Eight-Ball Pool Championships and I am really chuffed to have returned as the Ladies Champion! The format of a straight knock-out, with the early rounds being a race to two frames, allowed no room for error.

It would have been a long drive home from Great Yarmouth had I been knocked out! I had to play six matches in total and beat the No.1 seed in the final 4-2. The atmosphere was amazing and I only wish that I had attended the event in previous years. I would like to thank the University of St Mark & St John for all of their support and I am really pleased to have brought BUCS points home with me.'
