TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) -The Islamic Republic of Iran is going to host an eight-ball tournament early next month for foreign diplomats residing in the country.
The sports event will bring together diplomats from Armenian, British, Bulgarian, Egyptian, German, Greek, Indian and Tajik embassies and missions at the Economic Cooperation Organization (ECO) Cultural Institute in the Iranian capital city of Tehran, the Bowling & Billiard Federation of the Islamic Republic of Iran website reported.
The report added that the diplomats’ cup will start on February 1, and will wrap up on February 4, 2018.
Eight-ball (often spelled 8-ball and sometimes called solids and stripes) is a pool game popular in much of the world.
Standard eight-ball is the second most competitive professional pool game, after nine-ball.
The ultimate object of the game is to legally pocket the eight ball in a called pocket, which can only be done after all of the balls from a player's assigned group have been cleared from the table.
