You are invited to select a team of players (men and women’s divisions) to participate in an inter-agency 8 ball pool tournament.

The vision is that this will run every year starting from 25 February 2023. Teams will play for a challenge shield to be kept at the winning agency office for 12 months of bragging rights.

The inaugural tournament will be hosted by MSD and the winning agency each year will then be responsible to host and defend the shield. The tournament rules, venue, format etc will be be confirmed later, but for now please consider the following information:

  • 4 men with 3 reserve players
  • 4 women with 3 reserve players

There will be one mixed doubles team per organisation, this can be made up from within your nominated players.

As is with most things, there is a cost involved per team. This will help with payment of incidentals.

If you are interested in entering a team, please contact
