Welcome to the Ultimate Pool Group

The Ultimate Pool Group organise and promote professional 8-Ball Pool events featuring the world’s top players.

Founded in 2020 when the QK Sports Entertainment and Orange Media Group brands merged forces, the Ultimate Pool Group harbours an exciting vision for the sport’s future, with an emphasis on supplying quality, entertainment and increased levels of professionalism, exposure and prize money.

Ultimate Pool hosts a portfolio of live televised tournaments including several major invitationals and a structured two-tier floor circuit that consists of an open amateur series and an elite 32-player professional series. Throughout 2021, Ultimate Pool is set to payout approximately £300,000 in prizes.

Several of 8-Ball Pool’s all-time greats compete in Ultimate Pool events, including current and six-time World Champion Michael Hill, and two-time World Champion and former Mosconi Cup MVP Chris Melling.
