The Villar Foundation, led by its Chairman and Managing Director—Senator Manny Villar and Former Las Pinas Representative Cynthia Villar, is staging the 2012 series of Villards Cup billiards tournament on September 23 and 24 at the newly opened Starmall in San Jose Del Monte, Bulacan.

Sixteen amateur players from all over the province of Bulacan qualified for the competition. 

Philippine Billiards legends--Efren ‘Bata’ Reyes, Francisco ‘Django’ Bustamante, Ronnie ‘The Volcano’ Alcano and Dennis ‘Robocop’ Orcollo--will also attend the event.

"Billiards now matches the popularity of basketball among Filipinos, especially the youth. Support for this sport should be encouraged and enhanced," said Sen. Villar, who will lead the ceremonial 'break' of the billiard tournament.

The Villar Foundation started the Villards Cup in 2009. It provides budding billiards players a venue to compete against amateur players and play alongside veterans and billiards champs. 

"Villards Cup is one of the sports-oriented programs of the Villar Foundation to encourage the youth to engage in sports, and keep them away from the streets and from illegal drugs." said Mrs. Villar, who will attend the awarding and closing ceremony on Monday (Sept. 24).

Sen. Villar added that they hope 
Villards Cup will be instrumental in discovering and developing the potential of amateur billiards players. 

 One of the advocacies of the Villar Foundation is grassroots sports development throughout the country.  In its 20 years of service, various sports programs have been implemented to support this thrust including Sports sa Barangay, football clinics among other. 

The Villards Cup has been staged in key cities of the Philippines and has featured the best Filipino cue artists
and has paved the way in discovering future billiard players.

 Big cash prizes await the winners, plus a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity
