WICHITA, Kansas – the Wichita Pool Players Hall of Fame membership committee announced their latest player inductee, Julie Mason-Comitini, this week.
Julie is the sixth player and first female to be recognized by the HOF committee for accomplishments in the field of pocket billiards.
Growing up in Wichita, Julie, as a teenager, became attracted to the game of pocket billiards (pool) and quickly gained the reputation as a highly-skilled player. Once she made her mark on the amateur circuit, she turned Professional in June 1999 and soon was a top 25 touring WPBA (Women’s Professional Billiards Association) member, appearing on ESPN televised tournaments.
“I am both honored and deeply humbled to be recognized by the Wichita Pool Players Hall of Fame as the first of what I’m sure will be many women chosen,” said Julie Mason-Comitini. “This honor in my hometown will always be one of the most important events of my life.”
The ceremony to honor Julie’s induction and presentation of her personal display will be held on Saturday, November 18, 2023, at 3:00 p.m. at Club Billiards.
The Wichita Pool Players Hall of Fame was founded in 2015 by Wichitan David Witten. The HOF Display is currently housed at Club Billiards (Wichita’s oldest pool room) located at 925 W. Douglas, in the Delano District.
The general public, as well as local media, is invited to attend.
