Australian Team for 2021 World Championships

Dear Members,

The AEBF held a committee meeting last night to discuss the selection of the Australian Team for the World Championships in 2021. After considering the options, it was decided that the fairest option was to proceed with the players:

  • who were called up for the 2020 World Championship and;
  • had not declined their spot by the time the Australian teams were withdrawn.

The above players will be invited to represent Australia in the 2021 World Championships. If any of these players decline their spots, then players will be invited in the order of those originally selected for the 2020 World Championships, and working down the list until the teams are filled.

As a reminder, here are the details of the 2021 World Championships:

  • Venue:   
  • Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel
  • National Exhibition Centre
  • Pendigo Way, Marston Green, Birmingham B40 1PP
  • Arrive
  • Monday 16th August 2021
  • Depart
  • Friday 27th August 2021

At this stage we are planning to send teams to the 2021 World Championships, but we will be monitoring the status of COVID-19 pandemic around the world, and its impacts on international air travel. 

In  other exciting news, the AEBF are also in discussions with New Zealand about a test series between Australia and New Zealand, which could be played either here in Australia or over in New Zealand. The team selected for the 2021 World Championships would be the team to play against New Zealand (depending on New Zealand playing numbers), which may be in addition to the 2021 World Championships or instead, depending on the COVID-19 situation. Watch this space for more details.

Kind regards,

Australian Eight Ball Federation Committee

2020 World Championships – Australian Teams Announcement

For the first time since 1993, Australia will not be sending teams to the 2020 World Eight Ball Championships.

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected travel plans in Australia on multiple levels, most relevant in this case with International travel. Although the countdown is on to lifting some of the measures put in place for social distancing and possibly domestic travel, the uncertainty is too great regarding planning International travel for our 40 plus players, Team Managers and travelling companions.

With many first-time representatives across the 6 Australian teams, this decision is very disappointing to us all. But it is of the highest importance that the AEBF declare that the safety of our Members is our number one priority.

Please join us in congratulating once again and acknowledging the great achievements of the following players that made up the 2020 Australian traveling teams.
