CCS Juniors Program
Usually thought of as the Players of the future, it turns out that Juniors can also be the Players of today!
Chia-Chang Wu of Taipei County in northern Taiwan, at the incredible age of 16, won the 2005 WPA WORLD 9 BALL CHAMPIONSHIPS held July 2-10 in Kaohsiung, Taiwan. Proving it was no fluke, he has since also won the WPA World 8 Ball Championships.
Setting the sights a little lower, the CCS is very pleased to announce that there will be JUNIORS SINGLES EVENTS at both the:
Canadian National 8 Ball Championships each Easter at the Doubletree International Plaza Hotel in Toronto, Ontario, and the
Western Canadian 8 Ball Championships to be held May wk1 at the Acadia Rec Centre in Calgary, Alberta.
