Become a Sponsor
Referees are a strange bunch. We all have full time jobs and give up massive amounts of our spare time and travel thousands of miles each year in order to help facilitate the game we love. Rest assured, we don't get rich from doing the job. In fact, we normally have to take some annual holiday from our jobs in order to referee at events, and when you factor in the overtime that we could have worked instead, it actually COSTS us money most of the time in order to be a referee!
Therefore we look to sponsors to help us with our costs. I am very fortunate to have received sponsorship from many companies, who have all been very satisfied with seeing their logos on TV and my promotion of them on Social Media platforms. I have many potential sponsorship opportunities for small and large businesses alike, costing less than you might think! I can offer a range of packages from minimal cost single event sponsorships, to potentially getting your logos put on my refereeing shirts and broadcast on live TV and the BBC iPlayer. There are even opportunities to sponsor entire referee teams for larger businesses - remember, referees are the only people guaranteed to be in the live broadcast sections of the biggest tournaments and events and normally at a lower cost than event or player sponsorship - it makes complete sense!
I have been fortunate enough to be selected to referee many high profile matches on live TV, meaning your logos could be seen during the biggest and best matches. I am a regular live TV tournament final referee, but some highlights include:
2022 IPA World Championship - Final
2022 IPA World Championship (Doubles) - Final
2021 Ultimate Pool Pro Series 5 - Final
2020 IPA World Championship - Semi Final
2020 IPA Seniors World Championship - Final
2020 IPA Doubles World Championship - Final
2019 IPA Champions Cup - Final
2019 IPA Seniors World Championship - Final
2019 GB9 UK Open (Mosconi Ranking Points event) - Semi Final
2019 GB9 Paul Medati Trophy Challenge 2 - Final
Multiple Money Matches including:
"The Battle of Britain" Money Match between cuesport legends (Pat Holtz vs. Mark Gray)
Shane Thompson vs. Ben Davies

The Pool Ref Supporters Club
With clear, low pricing starting at just £250 for an annual silver membership, this new exciting initiative aims to increase the opportunities for smaller businesses to support the sport with very little of the cost - and you’ll be helping not just me, but upcoming players!
The sponsorship fee will be split between myself and an up-and-coming player of my choosing playing in a major tour (IPA or Ultimate), with preference given to amateur female or youth players who struggle to pay for tour fees or attract sponsorship - but who I believe deserve the opportunity. At least £125 of each fee goes directly to a player.
If you become a member of The Pool Ref Supporters Club, both myself and the selected player will tag your business in posts at each event we are involved in. The player will also wear your business logo on their playing shirts. You get a lot of the benefits of sponsorship with little of the cost!
There is also a Gold version of the Supporters Club - this costs £450 and, in addition to the above, your logo will also be placed on one of my playing tops for events that I am playing in instead of refereeing!
