One of the event organisers, Memory Chimhutu said it was all systems go. The dress code is strictly white t-shirts and black skirts or slacks and formal shoes.
The venue has over the months and years hosted several pool contests such as Black Label and One Man pool tournaments. She confirmed that there will be prizes for the winner up to eighth position. First prize will be $120 while the second and third placed will walk away with $80 and $50 respectively. The fourth-placed will receive $30 will the rest will get $15 each.
“Preparations are at an advanced stage. We have hosted a lot of provincial and national competitions at the venue. We are excited that this month’s tournament will be held at the spacious venue which allows players to roam and play freely without being disturbed by revellers. There are a lot of prizes to be won. We have received overwhelming response from players who are willing to be part of the prestigious event,” said Chimhutu. Last tournament’s winners were Robyn Gillgower, Priscilla Chisoro (both from Bulawayo), Alice Chihota and Patricia Ganya (both from Chitungwiza).
