ALISON FISCHER

This Wausau, Wisconsin native says her passion for the sport of pool began at the age of 13, when she practiced for countless hours on her parent's Brunswick Gold Crown pool table. She grew up in a household of "pool lovers," and had a natural knack for the game. At age 15, she began playing in local bar box 9-ball and 8-ball tournaments.

Alison graduated with a BA in Communications with a Media & Technology emphasis from the University of Wisconsin, Stevens Point. While in college, she joined her first pool league, then joined an all-female team on a men's BCA league in 2004. From there, she went on to play on the Dr. Pool Native American Casino Pool Tour and the Six Arrows Native American Casino Tour. In 2008, Alison relocated to New York where she found her "dream job" as the editor and photographer for the online pool magazine NYCGrind.com. Currently, Alison plays on the Predator 9-ball Tour, Tri-State Tour, J. Pechauer Northeast Women's Tour, and the Amsterdam Billiards 9-ball team league.
