The Super Sync 8 Ball Challenge - Date announced!

It's a London thing! The Guild announce new social night of 8 ball pool, drinking and banter, check out the details here.

By Jon Skinner 28-Jul-2017

It’s a London thing!

Actually, it’s more of a British and European thing to be fair as our friends across the big pond seem to prefer American 9 Ball-hence the name I guess.

So we are excited to announce a brand new social night to the calendar, with the Guild’s very first Super Sync 8 Ball Challenge, which will be held on Thursday 7th September 2017 @ Spots and Stripes Pool Hall in London close to Waterloo. This will be held in the evening and further details will be provided to accepted teams… continue reading.

Clearly, most of the old skool creatives in the world of sync are made up of degenerates that spent many an evening honing their skills at their local youth wing. Obviously, this gives them a huge edge over the competition and we expect to see a few sharks coming to play on the night.

Our very own President, Iain Cooke is dusting down his handmade cue with an aim of putting in a big performance on the night- after all, it is a challenge and there will be an illustrious prize for the winning team.

So who can enter?

Priority will be given to Guild members, but we will be accepting requests from non-guild teams. We will be limited by numbers (playing) but also have some capability for guests to join for drinks and team support. Once we have gathered all the team information we will confirm who is all good to join on the night & further details. Please note, this will be a private invite only social evening, so if your name ain’t down you ain’t coming in.

Does it cost anything?

It's totally free for all Guild members. We have hired the tables and will provide some drinks courtesy of our friends at Silva Screen. If you are not a Guild member you are more than welcome to come on board. For non-members there is an entry fee of £15 per team (3 players per team) which goes towards the costs for the night. You will only be asked to pay if accepted to join us on the night.

How do I enter?

We are asking for people to email us their team name and three players names. Here’s what we need to know:

  • Confirm you can attend on the evening of Thursday 7th September 2017 in London from 6pm onwards.  

  • Get your three players together and tell us your team name

  • Email all the above details and any contact information to with the subject line 'Super Sync 8 Ball Challenge' by Tuesday 29th August

All details about the format of the night will be provided to confirmed teams after the closing date above. If you can’t get a team together, but would like to join in, please do let us know and we will see if we can help.

Finally, we are looking forward to having some fun, a few shared drinks and lively banter.
