Asian Under 21 Snooker / Asian Billiards POSTPONED

Postby roy142857

Hearing Asian Under 21 Snooker and Asian Billiards Championship have been postponed because of the extent of visa problems,

Edit: Apparently hardly any officials about in Delhi to process the visas as all 'out and about' due to the forthcoming Indian elections.

No idea if the WPBSA Billiards event at the same location that was due to follow on from the Asian Billiards Championship is still running or not.

Tried to work out if this was an April Fools Joke, hoped it was but it appears not ...

Top cueist Alok Kumar, who is also the Secretary of the host Punjab Billiards and Snooker Association (PBSA), said, “I learnt that players from at least five countries — China, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Pakistan and Iran — have not got visas. Apparently, they have not got clearances from various ministries. It is disappointing since we had been working hard for the last one month to organise the event.”
