France has been entrusted by Blackball International with the organisation of the 2022 World Championships
The beautiful city of Albi, in the south of the country, has been chosen to host what will without doubt be the flagship billiard event of the year in France!
The competitions will take place from the 8th to the 15th of October 2022 in the exhibition centre of the Parc des expositions.
Two large rooms will accommodate the competition hall plus a village which will provide entertainment stands, a practice area for competitors, a catering area and other activities.
France has in the past hosted major international billiard events including the 3-Cushion Billiards World Championships in Bordeaux in 2016 and the World Blackball Championships in 2010 in Limoges.
The Parc des expositions has itself previously played host to a major Blackball pool event.
In 2018 the National French Cup, where this photograph was taken, brought together nearly 400 participants.
The 2022 World Blackball Championships has a dedicated website.
