So I got a call the other day from Brad Combs who is making a big push to get pool tables installed in Las Vegas area schools. His group, the Academic Billiards Collective, is pushing hard to get tables placed in schools all over the Clark County school district.
The concept makes sense, as providing after school activities like this tend to keep high school kids out of trouble. In addition, there are numerous educational applications, as the game of pool makes for excellent demonstrations in physics and geometry.
PoolDawg will be donating products to the Collective as we feel that bringing pool to schools is an excellent way to build interest in the sport. For anyone interested, they’ll be holding a tournament at Pool Sharks in Las Vegas on April 19th.
