     The 2017 Women 9-Ball World Championships (WWC) was hosted at the County Gymnasium in ChengMai (HaiNan Province, China) from 08 to 11 November 2017.  Women from across the globe competed for the World Title and a total Prize Fund of US$175,000, the Champion receives US$43,000 of this!

     The final was a clash of the Chinese titans between multiple champions Chen SiMing and Pan XiaoTing.  Chen was trailing by 1-5 but managed to make a comeback putting herself on the hill before Pan snatched two back.  The final score was 9-7 in Chen's favour with which Chen successfully won the world title for the first time and completed the grand slam!!


     In 2009, Chen made her debut at the WWC that was first brought into China that year.  Chen was yet to be 16 in age.  For 9 consecutive years Chen had tried her very best for the title, and even though she went into the finals in 2011 and 2014, she was not able to claim the throne.

    During this period, Chen went on and won the World Chinese 8-Ball Championship, World Invitation, World Games, Asian Games, Asian Indoor Games, multiple titles at 9-Ball Open, as well as being the first Chinese player to become world #1 and being selected as WPA Player of the Year, etc.  The only piece missing is the WWC title.

    Pan, renowned as the "9-Ball Queen" in China, was the first Chinese player to win the WWC and holds a record of being ten times 9-ball world champion.
