5 Reasons Your Bar Needs a Pool League
Pool players love pool leagues. Simple as that. Business owners all over have capitalized on getting a pool league started at their respective bars.
The process for starting your own pool league isn’t all that difficult, and the participants will thank you for it.
Here are 5 convincing reasons for having a pool league at your bar:
1. Pool Leagues Draw Crowds
More people = more money spent. And more money spent by patrons means a bright future for your establishment. If your league gets a solid reputation for being a fun way to spend time and money, more and more people will become interested.
Pair the growing crowds with good food and drinks, and you’re set.
2. More Business On Slow Nights
Pool leagues can turn what’s typically a slow night into the opposite. A pool league is a great way to attract more people on evenings that don’t usually see a lot of people come in. This will keep the crowds consistent and help your cooks and/or bartenders stay happy.
Slow nights usually fall on the weekdays for most bars. If you can give people a reason to come in during these times, it’ll pay off in the long run.
3. Attract New Customers
New patrons coming into your bar or pub can turn into regular customers who come in multiple times a week. Guests who started showing up simply to play pool will now show up because of pool, and the other great experiences you’re providing.
It’s likely that these new customers will also tell their friends and family about their new favorite bar. There’s nothing more effective than natural word-of-mouth marketing!
4. Build Sense of Community
Having a pool league at your bar will help create more connections within the community. It could potentially be a place where people gather to talk business, or anything else outside of playing pool.
When you’re able to build relationships with people, great things happen. A pool league brings people together on a regular basis and makes this even more possible.
5. More Opportunities for Pool Players
Last but not least, creating a pool league provides more opportunities for pool players everywhere. Not having a pool league can be one of the most frustrating things for players, especially if they live in areas with few or no places to play.
For serious players, a league provides a place they can come regularly to improve their game and possibly even create more opportunities to play in bigger tournaments.
We hope you’ve found this list of reasons to start your own pool league helpful. A pool league can be an exciting addition to communities everywhere (especially in small town areas).
As long as you have enough support and potential players, there really isn’t much downside to starting a bar pool league.
It may take some investment up front, but a successful league will make up for it, and then some! We wish your future pool league the best of luck!
As always, Happy Shooting!
