 LEVEL 1 – The APBU recognized National or Territorial Tournaments Referees:


This is the based entry level for all Official Tournaments Referees and is directed primarily at those who wish to develop further a working knowledge of 9-Ball, 8-Ball, and also if required, 15-Ball Rotation or 14-1. It is also for the APBU affiliated Members wishing to have a “Recognised” referee to officiate at their local events.


To achieve this level of recognition, one must successfully complete for the following two programmes.

(1)     A written question examination as administered by the APBU office for programme administration.

A written examination is based on the current official rules for general rules of pocket billiards, 9-Ball, 8-Ball and if required, 15-Ball Rotation or 14-1, published annually by the APBU or the WPA, and further on the standard knowledge for some of equipment specifications for the pocket billiards. A passing grade of 90% must be achieved.


(2)     Practical test for various scenarios from actual game situations. A miss-judge, a careless attention, a mistake application with a rule to a case, a slow conduct and other unsuitable action as referee will be recorded as one point, then a passing grade must be less than 3 points during the several actual matches that will be competed with two athletes in the test venue.
