To promote Snooker, the ABSC board decided to go to the centre of Africa. As Kenya is hosting the African University Games and Snooker is included, the ABSC found it a golden opportunity to organise the African Snooker championships in Kenya to attract more African countries to be members of the ABSC.
AFRICAN SNOOKER & 6 RED
The ABSC intend to organise:
The African women & men Snooker
The African mixed doubles
The African 6 red
The African Clubs championship
The African seniors Snooker
The African under 21
The African Nations Cup
THE AFRICAN UNIVERSITY GAMES
About 4000 participants are expected to represent their respective universities across the African continent in the five day competition program consisting of 15 games that include Athletics, Chess, Swimming, Taekwondo, 3x3 Basketball, Badminton, Table Tennis, Tennis, Woodball, Billiard and Snooker, Karate, Basketball, Football, Volleyball, Handball, Rugby 7’s, Netball. Three extra games (Rollball, Snooker and Woodball) shall be played for demonstration purposes.
As precautionary & preventive measures to ensure the general safety of the players, officials and fans, and in line with the world's efforts to stop the spread of COVID-19 and "WHO" guidelines, please note that the African Billiards and Snooker Confederation Board of Directors has decided to suspend the annual championship until further notice.
Once the pandemic is controlled & travel bans are lifted, we are intending to organise ABSC annual championship in Kenya either before or after the African Universities Games, given that Snooker is included. In doing this this, we will be following up on updates from the "WHO" in order to determine suitable dates for the ABSC championship.
