The Joy Billiards Q3+ Pool Tables which are the official equipment for
Chinese Pool as approved by the International Chinese Eight Ball Pool
Association (ICEA) were received by FIJI Ventures Limited ;the Joy
Billiards Sports Promotion Company representative in Nigeria.
Snooker and Pool Players Alliance of Nigeria (SPPA) is set for a nationwide promotion of the Chinese Eight Ball Pool in a few week’s time as the much awaited equipment for the sport have arrived the country.
SPPA had earlier entered into a well celebrated collaboration with FIJI
Ventures to grow Cue Sports in Nigeria which will see more competitive snooker and pool tournaments hold all over the country as well as working with Joy Billiards Sports Promotion Company China to promote the Chinese Eight Ball Pool and avail exceptional players in this version of pool global opportunities.

appearance at the Joy Billiards / ICEA Chinese Pool World Cup in Durban, South Africa in 2020 but the global Covid-19 lockdown caused the
organisers to postpone the event indefinitely.

interest in the sport in order for Nigeria to stake a claim for future
global events and produce world beaters in the sport.
