Natasha Livsey has been crowned Ambition UK Pool champion!

The 13-year-old Ridgewood Community High School student travelled down to Riley’s Pool Centre in Coventry at the weekend, but her six-hour coach journey didn’t take anything out of her game.

Representing Burnley Boys’ Club, Natasha came through five rounds, playing best of three frames, winning the final 2-1 against her Welsh opponent to take the Under 14 title.

The Ambition Pool Championship is run in partnership with the English Pool Association, giving young people the chance to represent and play for their club nationally.

The competition always attracts a huge amount of talent, skill, focus and determination, but Natasha put hours of practice into her performance to win the trophy.

Ambition is the UK’s leading youth club charity, supporting youth clubs to help develop confidence, skills and resilience for the future.

Their members work with over 3,500 youth clubs and youth community projects across the UK, supporting more than 350,000 young people, providing training and development for the 30,000 adults who run these clubs, giving advice on running clubs, and holding regional and national events for young people.
