Following the inaugural China Billiard World Championship in Yushan County, India Open in Mumbai, China Open in Beijing and yet another successful World Championship at the iconic Crucible Theatre in Sheffield, all played on Strachan cloth, the WSP Textiles sales team is hugely encouraged to see the game and interest of snooker and pool continue to grow in all parts of the world.

And at the recent 9th Guangzhou International Billiards Exhibition (GBE2015), both local and overseas visitors were visibly seen seeking out better quality products in order to provide discerning buyers better snooker and pool playing experiences. Clearly the state of snooker and pool in China remains buoyant as we see Xingpai Billiards returning as an exhibitor after a 3 year absence.

The WSP team also noticed visitors to the Strachan 6811 branded booth asked more deep probing questions about the quality of Strachan cloth and its 4 key attributes of: Fast. Responsive. Consistent. Control. EJ Goh, Asia Marketing Manager for Strachan cloth commented “It is really great to be receiving such questions as this demonstrates club owners, players and traders alike, all appreciate and understand premium quality snooker and pool cloth.”

It was also a very happy and proud occasion for the WSP team as 12 months after announcing Darren Appleton as their Strachan Brand Ambassador, Darren became the winner of the inaugural China Billiard World Championship.

Duncan Kettell, Sales Director adds “We are very proud and happy for Darren to come away with the top honours for this prestigious inaugural China billiard event. We wish him many more successes in the years ahead. With more Chinese billiard tournaments scheduled to be held on Strachan cloth for the rest of the year, the bar is now set high“.
