The 2nd Shanghai Huangpu Cup Workers’ Billiards Invitational Tournament kicked off at the Huangpu District Worker’ Indoor Arena yesterday, attracting 16 teams from five cities and provinces around the country. Jointly organized by the Shanghai Trade Union and the Shanghai Sports Bureau, the event aims to rebuild the public foundation for billiards, a cue sport popular among China’s general public back in the 1980s and 90s. The final will be tomorrow and members of the winning team will get a chance to represent China at the 2019 9-Ball World Cup to be held in Shanghai in August. The Shanghai Trade Union and the Huangpu District Trade Union have been holding contests for Shanghai billiards clubs since 2015, involving nearly 450 participants. Last year, a Huangpu District team won the inaugural Huangpu Cup. The team then took part in the 2018 9-Ball World Cup and finished a creditable third.
