The Controversial Ban on Pool Players: A Threat to the Growth of the Sport

In a recent development that has sent shockwaves through the world of professional pool, Ishaun Singh, the President of the World Pool Association (WPA), has announced plans to impose a ban on players who choose to compete in non-sanctioned events, particularly those organized by the World Nineball Tour (WNT). This decision, set to be discussed during a general meeting at the upcoming Qatar Open 9-Ball Championship, has sparked intense debates within the pool community. While Singh believes this move is necessary to protect the sanctity of WPA events, others argue that it stifles player freedom and hinders the growth of the sport.
