CAROLINE PAO

Caroline was surrounded by pool growing up in New Jersey and the Philippines. However, it wasn't until late 90s that she got hooked on the game, intrigued by the technical aspects and the strategy of the game. Pool was just a hobby for this NYU graduate who earned a Masters degree in Marketing and entered the corporate world, but her heart was not content with just work. Caroline joined leagues and began competing at local tournaments and women qualifiers to help enhance her competitiveness.

As Caroline started winning tournaments and titles, as well as J. Pechauer Northeast Tour (JPNEWT) Women Qualifiers, pool became more of a passion. The turning point came in 2005 when she claimed the JPNEWT Player of the Year and was invited to play on the Women's Professional Billiards Association (WPBA) Tour in 2006. She is currently ranked 28th on the WPBA Tour. During her precious free time, Caroline works on her business ventures, Billiard Life, an apparel line for pool and billiards, and Mezz USA, which distributes one of the most reputable cue lines in Asia.
