Part 2 of 8
A competing but very similar set of rules has been promulgated by the larger World Pool-Billiard Association (WPA), under the game name “blackball” to better distinguish it from the American-style game (for which the WPA also promulgates the world-standardised rules). It was intended that “blackball” would unify the various existing British-style rulesets (presumably also including the WEPF rules) although this has not yet happened. The governing body for WPA blackball in Europe, with numerous national and local affiliate groups, is the European Blackball Association (EBA).
At Panda’s we play in a Handicap format. All players will receive a ball handicap based on skill level1 – 4 (your team should not exceed a team level of 8). Example if a level 1 plays a level 4. The level 1 player will be able to remove 3 colour balls after the ball colour has been selected. This would give the level 1 player a 3-ball advantage. All levels will be determined by Cue Sport specialist, Hendry Erasmus.
