British 9-Ball Open Postponed

World Pool Management regret to announce that unfortunately it will be necessary to reschedule the British 9 Ball Open Championship which was originally set for 13th - 19th February at Haylng Island in Hampshire.

We (WPM) have been informed that a statement was recently made by the International Pool Tour (IPT) at their event in Orlando which suggests the next IPT event may be rescheduled for the middle of February.

As one can appreciate, date clashing of two of the worlds largest tournaments is not beneficial to the sport, the players, broadcasters and of course our sponsors. Despite the fact that all the logistics were in place for the British 9 Ball Open Championship we have no desire to disappoint our sponsors, broadcasters and most of all the aspirations of the participants for this event.

We have therefore made the decision to reschedule The British 9 Ball Open Championship for later in the year and we will consult with the WPA and all major tournament organisers to ensure the tournament goes ahead on a date suitable which does not clash with any other major event.
