Notification of Suspension

Lausanne, October 8th, 2020.

To whom it may concern.

The players that participated to the non-sanctioned PBA International Competition, in the period between September 30th and October 4th, 2020, have been officially notified that they are statutory suspended for the duration of one calendar year, starting October 5th, 2020 and expiring October 5th, 2021.

The player’s entry in the UMB World Players Ranking has been accordingly updated.

The Affiliated Federations and Confederations, that constitute the UMB, are bound by the statutes to extend the suspension to their National and Confederal Championship Competitions, regardless of their own statutes.

Any appeal or Court Case concerning the UMB suspension of players must be directed to the UMB, as the highest body that pronounced the sanction, according to the published UMB statutory appeal procedures.  

The Ladies LPBA Competition is not considered as an International Competition since only one player from another Confederation participated. Therefore, the participating players have not been suspended.
