LEE KENDALL - CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER, ULTIMATE POOL
"Ben Taylor-Fuente... His attention to detail was noticed and without doubt one of the best referees I've seen."
KARL PAGE - PSP PROMOTIONS
"I have just used Ben for my money match weekend at 147 Sports in Swindon. I already know Ben from the IPA tour and him playing in a few of my events but this is the first time I've employed him as a referee. Ben was great all weekend, nothing was too much trouble and he went above and beyond what I asked of him. Ben is respected by all players and is just an all round nice guy as well as a top referee. He comes highly recommended and I will be definitely using him for my events in the future. ".
CORY REES - IPA PROFESSIONAL
"Best 8 ball referee out there in my opinion and also a top bloke"
MARK BOYLE - IPA PROFESSIONAL
"One of the best referees in the world! Look no further if you are looking for someone to ref a tournament, exhibition or money match!"
JAMIE CLARKE - IPA PROFESSIONAL
"Top quality referee with plenty of experience of huge tournaments & money matches, both streamed & on Live TV. Faultless refereeing every time he’s reffed one of my matches & he’s a top bloke off the table too. "
MATT HARVEY - QUALIFIED BLACKBALL REFEREE
"I completed my EBA referee exam in March 2019. The week before the exam, we hired Ben to come and do referee coaching and exam preparation. Not only was he knowledgable about the rules as you would expect, but he also taught all of us about positioning and focus, among other things. He was easy to talk to and so helpful. He even brought referee gloves for us to keep! He taught us exactly what would be expected at the exam - we were surprised with how thorough it was going to be and would have been caught cold without Ben's help.
There's no way I would have passed my referee exam without Ben's help. The examiner even said that the percentage of us that passed was much higher than normal as a result".
CALLUM MATTHEWS - BARNSTAPLE AND DISTRICT POOL LEAGUE
"I have worked with Ben on numerous occasions at Barnstaple Pool League Finals Day. Most recently in 2019 we hired him as both a commentator and on-camera live presenter. He is an excellent commentator, most people don't know he's actually a very talented player, so when he commentates he discusses the shots players are likely to play really clearly for the watching audience. After the games were finished Ben interviewed the winners on live stream without any form of script. He was able to come up with appropriate questions that encouraged the players to talk and asked about more than just the game they had played. If I didn't know any better I would have thought he did it for a living".
