Suspended Botswana Billiards Association (BBA) has been denied the right to hoist Botswana flag at the All Africa Blackball Pool Championships (AAPA) that were held in Monte Casino, Johannesburg, over the weekend.

The association was slapped with suspension by the Botswana National Sport Commission (BNSC) after failing to comply with the Registrar of Societies requirements. BBA spokesperson, Marang Morolong, told SportMonitor that they were playing the championships under the AAPA flag because they have been affiliates of the association since 2016.
