German Feuring lauds high level eight-ball foreign diplomats' cup

February 3, 2018

TEHRAN - Representative of German Embassy in Tehran Erik Feuring says that the level of the eight-ball foreign diplomats' cup underway in Tehran is high.

The event has brought 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 diplomats’ cup started on Feb. 1, and will wrap up on February 4.

“I am so glad to participate in the competition. I think the level of the tournament is satisfying and Iran successfully hosts the competition,” Feuring told the Bowling & Billiard Federation of the Islamic Republic of Iran website.

“Unfortunately, I cannot participate in the competition next year because I will have to leave Iran but I will surely recommend this event to my friends,” he added.

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.
