WPBSA Chairman Jason Ferguson has today resigned his position as President of the World Confederation of Billiards Sports (WCBS) and severed all links to the organisation.
This announcement comes following the success of the 2017 World Games Billiards Sports event in Wroclaw, Poland. This decision was taken because despite him taking all possible steps to improve the governance standards within the organisation, the WCBS still fails to meet the standards required by the WCBS Constitution and sports industry best practice.
Sport in the modern world has to follow the best governance practice and be transparent in its processes. The WPBSA will continue to champion the sport and do everything it can to obtain Olympic status for Billiard Sports.
