GCP 35: Rail2Rail Productions
In this podcast we talk to Adrianne Beach from Rail2Rail Productions, a Washington based company that streams live pool tournaments online. Much like a sports broadcast, Rail2Rail has been doing pool broadcasting for the last four years. Adrianne and her partner Anne Bounds host with the occasional guest host. They cover tournaments all over the western US, including: Washington, Oregon, and Texas, and are looking to expand coverage into other places, including Minnesota and Wisconsin.
A part of pool herself, Adrianne plays for the Northwest Women’s Pool Association, a regional qualifying tour for the WPBA professionals, and also serves on the board. Adrianne gives a very interesting perspective on pool and the offence and defense tactics behind playing professionally.
Rail2Rail Productions are also considering branching out into covering other sports online, from darts to Unicycle Football, watch their website for updates and what they’re planning next.
For their upcoming schedule, next month starting April 6th, they’ll be in Texas for the Texas State Championships. The week after they’ll be at the Lincoln City with the APA tournament and will then be broadcasting the NWPA tournament in Salem. Check their website for dates and times.
At the end she offers some pool tips for those looking to improve their game and impress their friends with pool.
