Billiards Star – Hundal Joins Dragon Promotions

Raj Hundal has signed on with the Dragon Promotions to be exclusively represented by the growing event production firm as one of pool’s rising stars.

Hundal, known as “The Hitman,” has to be a force to be reckoned with. He first turned heads in 2005 when he defeated top-seeded Yang Ching-Shun of Taiwan at the World 9-Ball Championship. He then shocked the field at the 2005 World Pool Masters by taking down veteran Rodney Morris in the finals.

“Raj has an enormous amount of confidence in himself, and that’s going to take him a long way in this game,” commented Charlie Williams, founder of Dragon Promotions. “He never gets down on himself and he has a smooth, fast-paced game that fans enjoy watching. Plus, he has a ton of charm and a witty sense of humor that makes people from all over root for him.”

Dragon Promotions will be expanding into India in 2009, with the goal of promoting the growth of billiards in the world’s second most populous country. DP has been involved in other markets, such as Korea and the United States. Recently, DP reached an agreement with Brunswick Billiards, who will be a partner in the firm’s expansion into India. Both of Hundal’s parents were born in India, and he is confident of India’s future and potential.

“Dragon Promotions is a great company that I would have loved to join regardless, but when I heard about the expansion into India it gave me a boost of electricity!” Hundal said. “My roots are in India and though I lived in London awhile, I’ve been to India enough to know the sport could become massive there.”
