Nearly 5,000 amateur players from 40+ states and nearly 10 countries have secured spots at the VNEA World Pool Championships, and they will compete against each other in Las Vegas at the Westgate Resort and Casino. They will compete for the right to be called the 2024 VNEA World Pool Champions in their respective divisions.


The VNEA welcomes Billiard World Champion and BCA Hall of Famer “Kwikfire” Kelly Fisher and Pro Billiard Champion Wei Wei “The Wave” Wei Tzu Chien to the festivities. Fisher and Chien will make a two-day celebrity guest appearance on Tuesday, May 28th, and Wednesday, May 29th, 2024.


As part of their appearance in Las Vegas, Fisher and Chien will host two events for the amateur VNEA players to participate in. The first event will be a “COACHING ACADEMY.” The coaching academy will take place on Tuesday, May 28th, and Wednesday, May 29th, from 9:30 am-11:30 am and 12:30 pm-2:30 pm. Each VNEA player accepted at pre-registration for the coaching academy will receive up to four hours of instruction divided between two classes. The coaching academy will cover a variety of topics like breaking, cue ball positioning, table approach, safety play, and more. VNEA players must pre-register at the VNEA Booth Onsite.



The second event Fisher and Chien will host is “CHALLENGE MATCHES.” On Tuesday, May 28th, the challenge matches will begin at 5 PM, and on Wednesday, May 29th, they will begin at 7:45 PM. This is a great time to watch the pros play up close and ask them questions.
