AAPA Status Within WPA

The World Pool-Billiard Association summarises the structure of international billiard organisations with regard to the International Olympics Committee (IOC) and clarifies the status of the All Africa Pool Association (AAPA) within the overall structure.
It is pointed out that the AAPA is the sole organisation within the WPA representing the continent of Africa. Consequently no African pool organisations can have an affiliation to the WPA unless they are a member of the AAPA.
