It is with great pleasure that GB9 can announce that they have formed a partnership with Kamui Brand who will sponsor the tour for the 2013 season.
Over the last few years Kamui have become renowned as the world leader in cue tip manufacture and they are by far the most commonly used tip by professional pool players the world over.
Kamui tips coupled with the specially developed Kamui chalk provides players with the perfect combination.
Masato Hiraoka, Managing Director of Kamui had this to say about the partnership, “I travel throughout Asia, North America, Europe and other countries to wherever pool is active worldwide. In the UK, I believe there are more advanced players than anywhere else and so I have been interested for some time in the work of the GB 9 Ball Tour.
The mission of GB9 is to be ‘The toughest national tournament on the planet’ but it is getting international now. To achieve this mission, GB9 has been committing to provide the opportunity for the player who wants to demonstrate their best abilities and in doing so they have rapidly gained the support from the pool industry in just a few years.
The tough standard of the professionally run tournaments enable GB9 and the players to inspire more people and bring out the true excitement of the 9-ball sport.
Kamui are proud to join GB9 in their mission and are very excited to be a part of it.”
Andy Warden, Chairperson of the GB 9 Ball Tour added, “The GB9 team are proud to welcome Kamui to their portfolio of world class sponsors. Kamui are very well respected throughout the world by both professionals and amateurs alike and so we are privileged to be associated with such a fantastic brand.
Many world class professionals who will be playing on the GB 9 Ball Tour this season already use Kamui tips including Chris Melling, Darren Appleton, Daryl Peach, Ralf Souquet, Jayson Shaw, Karl Boyes, Nick Van Den Berg, Niels Feijen and Nikos Ekonomopolous. We hope that our partnership encourages more and more players to start trusting in the Kamui Brand.”
