The Amway eSpring International Women 9-Ball Championship 2017 will be held between 2-5 March at its new home – the Taipei Gymnasium (#10, Section 4, Nanjing East Road, Songshan District), near Taipei Arena.  Last year, the calendar of the event was moved to June to make way for the Chinese 8-Ball World Championship.  Women players from all over the world, including FURY players Sandy Liu (ShaSha) of China and Kelly Fisher of England, will be flocking in to combat for the one of the most prestigious titles.
 
The championship, aka the Amway Cup, is the longest-running pool tournament and the highest standard in Taiwan, and will be celebrating her 20th Anniversary this year since Amway took up the sponsorship in 1998, with many moments to be remembered.
 
Chezka Luy Centeno of the Philippines made history last year by being the youngest ever (aged 16) to win the Amway Cup.  She came back from 1-5 down to beat Kelly Fisher 11-8 in the final last year, and went home US$34,000 richer. 
 
Same as before, the qualifiers will be held at the good old Jixian Billiards (#223 Jixian Road, Luzhou District, Taipei) between 26-28th February.
