Circular 6 for APBF Championships 2017

Important Notices

1.  We finalized the entry of each 6 categories by NBO as following:

There were 6 NBOs who registered two Senior teams; Australia, China Hong Kong, Chinese Taipei, Indonesia, Japan, and Korea.  Therefore under the supervision of KCBL Committee members, Anthony Ching, CTD, and Zhao Song, the official Scorer, made a draw and the "unlucky" NBO was Chinese Taipei whose Senior team entry will be reduced from two to one.  Our sincere consolations to the unlucky NBO, Chinese Taipei.


Each NBO should review its entries and check for its accuracy, and any discrepancies found should be notified immediately to the Organizing Committee.

However we can accommodate one more team for each of Junior and Youngster categories.

The Organizing Committee will entertain any NBOs interested who notify to the Committee at your earliest convenience. This will be first-come-first served basis.
