The WPA World 9-Ball Championships for Juniors, Girls and Wheelchair athletes are to be held from December 9th - 12, 2013, in Johannesburg, Gold Reef City Casino and Theme Park, South Africa, featuring 64 participants from 22 countries in 6 continents.
This is the first World Pool Championships to be held on African soil but will be the catalyst for many to follow. Come and support your local athletes and be the hospitable hosts to our international visitors as only South African fans can be. We would suggest bringing your Vuvuzelas to really liven up the spirit but fear that this might just scare the competition into submission and tears. Green and Gold gear should do the trick.
Gold Reef City has been the venue for many national and international events and with its theme park, various activities for kids and adults, notwithstanding their exemplary service levels, will be one of the best venues to host this prestigious event.
Nine Pool Tables will be set up in the venue with seating for 200 spectators and participants. There will be three pool tables set up in the foyer with a few legends offering training sessions and a trick shot display by Wayne "The Trixter" Parker as well as a trick shot competition for the public.
To become a ‘World Champion” in any sport is probably the most common dream amongst kids and adults alike. This is one of those times that we can witness the drama and excitement that unfolds in the fulfilment of just such a dream. Do not miss out on this once a lifetime experience.
