The IPA is delighted to announce that the winner of the 2022 IPA World Championships, will take home an incredible £13,000 for their efforts, of winning the most sought after piece of silverware in the game.

Jon McAllister will begin the defence of his title after 2 years, with the 2021 edition cancelled due to the pandemic, and will no doubt be one of the favourites to lift the title, but can he become the first player to ever successfully defend the crown?

The event will be open to all players, and we are expecting a significant entry from overseas, as the IPA works with the Blackball Nations, to showcase the talents of these fantastic players, that so often go under the radar.
