The Qatar Billiards and Snooker Federation (QBSF) will continue to host the annual 9-Ball Pool World Championship beyond 2013.
The QBSF had initially entered into an agreement with the World Pool-Billiards Association (WPA) to host the event for six years from ’08, but the world body decided to extend its tie-up with the Qatari federation for another four years and the event will now be organised in Doha till ’17.
This year’s edition will be held from September 2 to 13.
The first three editions of the event were held at the QBSF’s main facility in Mumtazah. From ’11, the tournament is held at the Al Sadd Indoor Hall. Leading pool table manufacturer Diamond will once again be providing the equipment for the event.
