NZBSA withdraws as host of 2018 Oceania

6 Dec 2017

Dear All

It is with regret that I have to inform you that the NZBSA has today advised the OBSF that they are unable to host the Oceania Championships for 2018 in Tauranga, New Zealand.

We will be looking to source an alternate venue to host the Championships and utilising the dates already set on the calendar if at all possible. It is more than likely to be in Australia, although we are consulting our other member countries to see if they wish to take on this event at such short notice.

The Open event winner will be nominated to the IBSF/ACBS Ranking events to be held in China, India and Qatar with all accommodation covered by the organisers. More details on this will be posted shortly.

The event champions for all categories Men, Women, Masters, U21 and Billiards will receive the nomination to represent Oceania at each and all IBSF Championships wherever they might be held in 2018.
