Japanese players advised to stay indoors

JAPANESE players taking part in the 2012 Nine-ball China Open in Shanghai have been advised to stay indoors until the conclusion of the pool tournament on Sunday after several of them were involved in a scuffle on Tuesday.

Xu Ronggen, secretary and vice president of the Shanghai Billiards Association, yesterday confirmed the incident had taken place.

He said the number of security guards at the Yuanshen Sports Center in the Pudong New Area had been doubled and no banners would be allowed.

Spectators have even been banned from watching matches involving Japanese players, Xu told reporters.

The unidentified Japanese players got into a fight with local people when they were eating at a food stall in the Wujiaochang shopping area.

Xu said the Japanese players were not seriously injured during the fight.
