At a meeting of the International Billiards and Snooker (IBSF) Executive on 5 September it was decided to cancel all tournaments for 2020.

This is taken directly from the IBSF site:

The IBSF Executive held a Zoom meeting on Saturday, 5th September 2020, where we discussed the impact, COVID-19 Pandemic is having on sports, travel, and life in general.

We are conscious, the IBSF has a duty of care to all in our Billiards & Snooker fraternity.

The IBSF has, therefore, decided to CANCEL all IBSF tournaments for the year 2020. These tournaments will not be rescheduled.

The IBSF is planning to return International competitions in the second half of 2021, which is the usual time slot for IBSF events.

In the interim, with the support of the Qatar Billiards and Snooker Federation (QBSF), we are planning a series of World Cup events during late February in Qatar and more details will follow later.

The IBSF Executives have also decided in the best interest of all members to postpone the 2020 AGM until early 2021 and we are planning to hold the AGM in IBSF headquarters in Qatar during one of the World Cup events in late February.
