Charleston Masters 9 Ball was established in June, 2008 with four teams. We have had as many as twenty teams in the 9 ball league. Hurricane 8 Ball has had as many as fourteen teams playing in a session. Our original goal was to have a sufficient amount of teams that we could pay so much money in purses to the players that not only would all of the players have to come play with us but our size would give us a voice with the bars. After nine years, we realize that we created the perfect storm. Awesome matches, $2000.00 purses to the winning teams and magnificent shootouts at the end of each session were the order of the day. Not to mention, we developed singles divisions for eight and nine ball leagues that were fantastic with huge pay outs for the players that placed. In the end, you really need to be an aficionado and a bar owner in order to make it worth the effort that it takes to manage it all. Just for the record, we DO know HOW to do it.
The buttons on the sides will carry you to the different pages of our website. Inside you will find schedules, standings, upcoming events and team photos. You will also find a "What's Up Page" designed to keep everyone abreast of changes and current events in the respective divisions. In addition, the "Best of the Best" page recognizes the three players in each of our skill levels who have distinguished themselves with superior play as well as a professional approach to the game of pocket billiards.
Everything that we do is for and about the player and the game. We are determined that both will be treated with respect. Our goals are to surround ourselves with players who are committed to playing the game in a professional manner, at as high a level as we possibly can. We endeavor to keep the teams balanced and the playing field as level as possible. We have found that there is very little that the pool player responds to more than money and an even chance at winning it. We are constantly striving to keep our league associated with a bar that has decent equipment and is large enough to support us.
We have had nine years to refine and improve upon the original concept and we haven't wasted an opportunity. We treat the problematic situations as an opportunity to improve and get stronger. The results have been surprising to us. There is contact information throughout the site. If you have questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch with us. Enjoy!
