APC BANGKOK 2020 POSTPONED TO 2021

Due to the escalation of cases of the COVID 19 virus in Asia and the resulting massive disruption to our lives we have decided to postpone the APC BANGKOK 2020 event. It will be held in a yet to be decided date in 2021 but most likely in September after the Tokyo Olympic Games.

Please stay safe and lets all hope that this virus will be defeated soon.

JAKARTA ALL STARS WIN A CLIFFHANGER AT APC 2019

At the end of day one of the Teams event, Singapore Stingers were the leading contenders ahead of Manila, Jakarta, HCMC and Bangkok.  All these teams were in contention to take home the APC Trophy.

In a nail – biting last round Singapore, Jakarta and Bangkok emerged as the final contenders.

 

In the end it was the JAKARTA ALL STARS who won by the narrowest of margins – one frame.

Singapore and Bangkok both scored 101 frames but Singapore were declared as the runners up based on the head to head calculation.

 

The competition standard once again rose in a very high standard of 8 – ball pool.

Remarkably if the three finalists had drawn on 101 frames each would have been awarded winners of APC 2019 even after the head to head calculation. That would have been an amazing result but it was not to be with Jakarta winning for the third consecutive year – threepeat!

 

The APC SUPER SINGLES 2019 was won by Rauri McCarroll from Bangkok Heat against Lee Oakes of Jakarta All Stars and last years winner.  Ruari has won this tournament three times showing his class and consistency.
