Professional 8-Ball Pool 'grand final' to be held on IOM

Manx professional player David Addinall

Event will be at the Palace Hotel in November 2021

The International Professional Pool Players' Association (IPA) has announced the 'grand final' of its season tour in 2021 will be held on the Isle of Man.

It'll also be streamed live on BBC Sport.

The remainder of this season's tour was cancelled, due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Manx player David Addinall - the current world number 16 - is one of those who misses out with the remaining events not being held.

The opening round in next year's series will be held at the Palace Hotel in Douglas, from 5 to 7 March, followed by the fifth and final round at the same venue from 5 to 7 November.

There's £7,000 on offer for the winner of that competition.
