History of Chinese 8-Ball in South Africa:

From research done by Joy Billiards in South Africa, they found that pool is the most popular indoor sport with the number of pool tables per capita being the largest 1:125, compared with other pool-famous countries, such as China (1:1200), U.S.A (1:2100) and U.K. (1:3500). With their passion for Chinese 8-Ball, they felt it imperative to introduce their sport to the cueists of South Africa. They believe with the exposure that Chinese 8-Ball can give Cue Sport, it will promote Cue Sport in general to the heights it well deserves in our country.

In April 2016, JOY Billiards in association with Halliday Promotions launched the Chinese 8-ball Masters Series in South Africa, from which winners qualified to senior qualifiers and the grand finale held in China, for a prize fund of over Two-Million-Rand!

Up until April 2017, a total of 62 qualifying events and 5 pro qualifiers had been hosted all over the country. Over 14 famous players like Richard Halliday, Vincent Halliday, Velly Diamond, Sbu Gumede, Wetsi Morake and Jason Theron stood out and attended events held in China fully paid for.

Over the past year of hosting tournaments around South Africa, Joy Billiards found the players affection to Chinese 8-ball sticking and the socioeconomic values of Cue Sport in South Africa became evident. Therefore, they partnered with ICEA (International Chinese 8-ball Association), WPA (World Pool-Billiard Association), players such as Stephen Hendry and with the incomparable knowledge of Ishaun Singh on Cue Sport, JOY designed a Chinese 8-Ball development project to cover a larger scale of players in South Africa – Chinese 8-ball Lease to Race – a core tournament system with the aim to further extended to major countries in Africa, so as to extend the social and economic benefit to the entire continent!

The South African Lease to Race concept:

Chinese 8-Ball is rolling out in South Africa and this is why YOU should have a Chinese 8-Ball Q5 table in YOUR club:

For the first time in the history of Cue Sport, the focus of Chinese 8-Ball is on business! The aim is to increase revenue for our clubs, while providing revolutionary life changing opportunities for players around the country!

Here is how it works:

Chinese 8-Ball has 3 divisions in South Africa, with a Q5 table in your club, you can participate in all 3 divisions!

1) Joy Billiards South Africa – This is a concept where tables will be rented out to clubs around the country. Each table is fully fitted with a light and light meter. The minimum charge for table time is R50 per hour, which goes to your club. Each table rented qualifies you for one spot in to major tournaments for huge prizes such as cars, big screen tv’s and smart phones. You will be legible to send your player to these tournaments which are one frame tournaments giving anyone of any skill level a chance to win! You would then have the opportunity to host mini qualifiers in your club where you can charge an entry fee for each mini qualifier, to ultimately host your main qualifier for your spot. The aim is that the entry fees from your mini qualifiers would cover your R 2000 monthly table rental and the income generated from the table time would go towards income generated for your business.

2) Qualifiers hosted by Halliday Promotions: These are qualifying tournaments to qualify for fully paid trips to China to participate in the WeMasters qualifying events. Fully paid trips and cash prizes to be won!

3) Provincial leagues hosted by the South African Confederation of Cue Sport: These are local leagues where players qualify to represent their province at the South African Chinese 8-Ball Championships.

With these well developed avenues, your venue will have abundant opportunities to have your table busy throughout the week to generate regular income for your venue and expose your players to the most lucrative cue sport competitions in the country! 

Get your table before the end of March to qualify for the first car competition that will take place at the Arnold Classic in JHB on the 19th of May 2018!
