Bringing together the world’s best players in 32 two-man teams, the World Cup of Pool is one of 9-ball’s major events and features the biggest stars from around the globe.
China’s pairing of Wu Jiaqing and Liu Haitao are defending champions after battling past the likes of Spain, Chinese Taipei and Austria to lift the trophy in Shanghai last year. But they’ll have to fend off competition from powerhouse nations such as Philippines, USA and Great Britain if they are to become the first country to successfully defend their World Cup of Pool crown.
As host nation Great Britain has two teams in the event. Scotland’s Jayson Shaw is paired with Chris Melling on Great Britain A, while Mark Gray and Imran Majid make up Great Britain B. More teams will be announced over the course of this week.
Afternoon sessions begin at 1:30pm on all six days with evening sessions commencing at 7pm Tuesday to Friday and 6:30pm on Saturday and Sunday. The draw and schedule will be announced in due course.
The 2019 World Cup of Pool is sponsored by the following partners: Iwan Simonis (Cloth), Saluc (Aramith Balls), Rasson (Table), Predator (cues), Kamui (chalk and tip).
