WPA expels Pan-American Billiard Confereration

The World Pool-Billiard Association (WPA) has today announced the expulsion of the Pan-American Billiard Confederation (CPB) as a member body. This action, taken by a vote of the General Assembly of the WPA, came after several days of deliberations and hearings.

Ian Anderson, President of the WPA, said: “We do not take this sort of action lightly. However, the independent course that the CPB has charted in the past year has been found to be inconsistent with the goals and direction of the WPA. We wish the CPB success in their future endeavors but we must seek to affiliate with those whose objectives are consistent with our own.”
