Raya Sports Announces Asia-Pacific 10-Ball Tour for 2008
Aug 3, 2007, 11:35 AM

The Asia-Pacific Tour, as announced, will be the world's richest 10-ball circuit.
Riding high on the success of the 2006 World Pool Championship in Manila, Raya Sports has announced the formation of a new tour that will host only 10-ball events. The Asia-Pacific Pool Tour is scheduled to debut January 27-28, 2008, with the Philippine 10-Ball Open.

Though Raya Sports is still in negotiations concerning tour stops, four sites have been confirmed for the 2008 season. Along with the Philippine Open in Manila, the tour is set to visit Jakarta, Indonesia; Taipei, Taiwan; and Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.

Raya Sports is also exploring sites outside of Southeast Asia, including Sydney, Australia, and Guandong, China. The U.S. is another possible destination, with San Francisco and Carson City, Calif., playing host.

Each stop will be an open event, accepting all players who post the $300 entry fee. According to Raya Sports, every player who finishes in the top 32 at each tournament will place in the money, with the winner guaranteed a minimum of $20,000.

Tour organizers are currently pursuing sponsors to guarantee prize money. Tour dates will be announced when finalized.
