Matchroom Multi Sport Extends Partnership with RASSON BILLIARDS

RASSON BILLIARDS remain as the official table supplier of Matchroom single table events as part of a new agreement with the Chinese table manufacturer.

The RASSON pool table is the table of choice for the World Nineball Tour’s Mosconi Cup, World Pool Masters and World Cup of Pool with the partnership stretching back since 2016. RASSON also provide their high-performance tables for the Hanoi Open Pool Championship.

The new extension will also see RASSON become the official table supplier of Premier League Pool (PLP), a unique two-table league format hosted at US 1 Billiards, West Haven, Connecticut between March 18-25.

RASSON will continue to benefit from exposure through Matchroom Pool’s ever-expanding social footprint with over 1.5million followers worldwide, including in China on Weibo, one of the country’s leading social media platforms.

Working closely with Matchroom, RASSON has refined their table to make it some of the toughest conditions in the sport, creating a professional universal standard for World Nineball Tour professionals and events.

The agreement also sees RASSON BILLIARDS continue to supply the tables for Matchroom’s prestigious Champion of Champions snooker event where the 16 winners from the previous year on the World Snooker Tour compete for £440,000 and at Matchroom’s Championship League Snooker events (Ranking and Invitational versions).

Kevina Wu, Business Manager of RASSON said: “We are delighted to be back working with Matchroom on Premier League Pool. For the first PLP event in 2022, it’s RASSON who supplied the OX tables for the event and we’re very happy that this time the event will be played on our Acurra tables at US 1 Billiards Club. Since last year, the Acurra has become the world-renowned, best-selling table all over the world due to its sleek design, superior playability and peerless high cost performance.

“Matchroom is the most prestigious company in the world for producing billiards events, and we look forward to cooperating with Matchroom on more events in the long future. Among the 16 players participating in the PLP event, seven are from the RASSON Pro team. We firmly believe this will be a wonderful event and wish PLP a huge success!”

Emily Frazer, Matchroom Multi Sport CEO added: “The World Nineball Tour has raised the bar and RASSON has been integral in that journey to professionalisation. As a hugely valued partner of Matchroom, we are delighted to extend our partnership together. They share our visions and goals to continue elevating the world of Nineball and we are thrilled to continue this journey with them.”
