NEW WPA MEMBER – ACBS
Monday 19th September 2022
NEW WPA MEMBER
The WPA is delighted to announce that the Asian Confederation of Billiard Sports (ACBS) has been appointed as our new member responsible for the continent of Asia.
The ACBS will fill the void that was left after the departure of the APBU.
WPA President Ian Anderson said, “I am pleased we have found a suitable body for the very important role of being the member for Asia. The Asian region consists of many countries, and these countries provide some of the world’s best players at male, female and junior levels. We welcome them into our family and look forward to working closely with them in the future”.
All countries who were members of the now defunct APBU will be members of this new organisation. Very importantly, the ACBS is officially recognised by the Asian Olympic Committee (AOC).
The ACBS will soon nominate its representative to the WPA Board of Directors and then the WPA Board will be back to full strength once again.
