Jayson Shaw Named IWGA Player of the Month

Jayson Shaw

The WPA congratulates Jayson Shaw who has been awarded the prestigious title of Athlete of the Month (December 2020) by the International World Games Association (IWGA). Please see the attached article <https://www.theworldgames.org/awards/Athlete-of-December-2020-83>

This is great news for billiard sports in general, it is the first time that a billiards athlete has been recognised by such an award. Jayson is a most consistent performer and his high-finish results from tournaments always ensures his ranking maintains itself among the world’s top 10 players. Just recently at the Mosconi Cup he was unbeaten in his five matches and besides being a member of the victorious team (Europe), he also won the tournament’s Most Valuable Player award.

The next World Games will be held next year in Birmingham, USA, July 7 – 17, and once again Billiards will be part of the Games’ program represented by Pool, Snooker and Carom.
