As well as sponsoring four terrific players, we also sponsor our own threeman

8 ball team, the Crown Cuesaders, in the in-house BCA pool league down at the Q-Spot, in Tulsa, OK. Since we are two of the three members, we wouldn’t find this information to be enough reason to bring to your attention, except we have a terrific young man on our team who is a very good player and we are also quite proud of. Josh Smallwood is only 19, but he’s a force to be reckoned with in a serious game. He loves 9 Ball, 8 Ball, One Pocket and trick shots. One of his heroes is Tom “Dr. Cue” Rossman, who’s signature was on Josh’s cue for quite a few years, before it finally faded away. We took 2nd place in our most recent season, partly because of Josh’s skills at the table. Thank you, Josh! Good luck at the Black Gold BCAPL State Championship, this month, while we are at the Super Billiards Expo, in PA.

We believe we are sponsoring some of the best players around the globe!
