Behind every successful man there is a woman supporting him, and that is very clear to see from the 30 plus ladies who regularly attend the UK tour to offer their support to their partners. Many competitors choose to bring along their children to make a real family weekend of it, and it is no wonder considering the events are played out at fantastic 4 star hotels with superb facilities to keep all entertained.

The friendly atmosphere on the tour is only enhanced by this kind of addition and maybe at the next Festival of Pool we could look towards putting on an event for the ladies to enter, nothing serious, just for fun!
