From the Legends and Champions Tour:

The Legends and Champions Pool Tour will be making 3 tour stops at the end of June around Illinois. This time the exhibitions and pool clinics will be held by none other than Buddy Hall and Nick Varner. Buddy and Nick are going to be in the area shooting the instructional DVD that they are working on together that should be released mid July. Buddy and Nick will also be on the road for a week at the beginning of July and those dates and locations are in the final stages of planning.


These two Hall of Famers and billiard legends will perform fun exhibitions that include Q & A sessions, stories, trick shots and even giving the local spectators a chance to play along side them in scotch doubles challenge matches. The clinics will be the same format as the usual Legends and Champions clinics go. A maximum of twelve students, divided into two groups of six. One group will work with Nick Varner for two hours and one group will work with Buddy Hall for two hours. After the first two hours is up each group will then switch and take two hours with the other pro. This is a great way to get some insight into the minds of these legendary players. The fee for the four hour+ clinic is still just $200.00 per person.


“Buddy and Nick are really looking forward to working with each other again and taking a trip down memory lane” said Mark Cantrill of the Legends and Champions Pool Tour. Nick Varner said “I think this is pretty historic because I don’t know if Buddy and I will have a chance to work together again but I am sure we will make the most of it and have a lot of fun with the fans who come out to support us”


Below is the short list of stops that Buddy and Nick will be making before moving on to the dvd shoot. For more information or to sign up for a clinic please feel free to contact Mark Cantrill at 480-612-7732 or email sign ups in advance are needed.
