Africa joins the fun

Postby SnookerFan

WPBSA is today pleased to announce that the African Billiards and Snooker Confederation (ABSC) has become the latest regional body to become a full member of the World Snooker Federation (WSF).

The agreement follows positive discussions between both organisations in recent months during which it has become clear that the interests of the WSF and ABSC are aligned for the ongoing development of snooker both regionally and globally.

The WSF is hugely excited by the potential of the Africas region as part of snooker’s worldwide development and is committed to supporting the activities of the ABSC to grow the sport and to provide opportunities to African players to compete at the highest level.

It was recently announced that this year’s African national champion Mohamed Ibrahim of Egypt has been awarded a main tour place for the next two seasons. His countryman and reigning African 6-Red champion Mohamed Khairy will also take his place at September’s SangSom 6-Red World Championship as an international qualifier.
