WPA會長致詞
On behalf of the World Pool-Billiard Association (WPA), it is a pleasure to welcome everyone to this prestigious tournament, the 2008 Amway Women’s World 9-Ball Championship, the premiere event of the women’s competition calendar.
Once again we are indebted to the generous sponsorship provided by Amway, this being their eleventh consecutive year. Amway do an outstanding job promoting this event and through our Asian membership, the Asian Pocket Billiard Union (APBU), we have enjoyed a wonderful relationship with them throughout the years.
We have more than twenty nations represented this year making this event a true world championship. Forty eight of the best players from all over the world are competing to see who will become world champion for 2008. It has all the right ingredients for the making of a terrific contest.
We are very pleased to have the involvement once again of Mr. Tu from CTBA and his own promotions company Mr. Tu Sports. They have provided us with outstanding events over many years, and this year will not be any exception. Their skills are second to none when it comes to the organising and conducting of a billiards event.
Many of the officials who will work on this event have done so for many years, and we are always grateful for the job they do. Their tasks seem sometimes to go unnoticed, but we are fully aware of the tremendous job they do, and the manner in which they apply themselves.
To the many fans that will come along to support the players, I’m sure you will witness some great matches and that it will prove to be a most enjoyable experience for you. Thank you for attending.

Of course there can be no tournament without players. You have travelled from near and far to be here and we certainly appreciate your professional manner and the way in which you support this event. I take this opportunity to wish each and everyone all the very best for a most successful Championship.
