And will be provided to the top five finishers in the boys 16&U 9-Ball division. “While there is still a possibility that we could receive additional allocations for the 2021 Predator World Junior Pool Championship due to international travel restrictions,” said Shane Tyree BEF associate director. “We didn’t want to over promise anything to our junior competitors but we did want to announce how many spots we knew we could provide to all the players interested in learning how they can represent their country and qualify to compete in the World Championships.” This year, the BEF Junior National 9-Ball Championships presented by Iwan Simonis will have three categories in the 9-Ball division for boys and girls. The categories include: 14&U* (cannot turn 15 in 2021); 16&U* (cannot turn 17 in 2021); and, 18&U (cannot turn 19 in 2021). *Divisions are based on minimum field or players will participate in the open divisions.
