Bio

Lee Noble started playing pool at the age of 6 when his parents bought him his first table. The table lived in his bedroom and he played on it for hours each day. At the age of 15 he used to spend nearly all his evenings in a local pub playing pool, and doing very well at it. He started playing seriously for the same local pub at the age 18.

Lee was always competitive and had a good winning record but it wasn’t until he reached his mid 20’s that his game really took off when he started competing in local tournaments where he had good success. When he was 28 he started playing for his county in England (Hampshire) where he had a very successful first season placing 4th overall in the UK’s standings. This earned him an opportunity to try out for the England team, which he participated in and was successful. He played his first National tournament in 2002 where England won the World Championships. He played again for England the following year but they lost in the semi-final.

In 2003 Lee moved to the US (Seattle) and started playing APA league in both 8-ball and 9-ball, where he quickly reached the maximum skill levels in both formats. He competed in the US Amateurs every year from 2005 qualifying 5 times for the finals.

In 2016 Lee moved back to the UK so his wife, daughter and him could spend more time with their family’s. Lee is now back playing in the local league and is also playing in the GB 9-Ball tour. His hobbies include fishing and teaching his daughter how to play pool.
