Zhou Zining: It’s difficult to survive in the game, and once less practiced, I hope Beijing Gaogu will do Chinese billiards
On May 23, 2012, the “Xingpai Cup” National Chinese Billiards Ranking Tournament kicked off in Zhengzhou.ning, a top female Chinese billiard player, said that at one time he only devoted little energy to practice, and the holding of the National Chinese Billiards Ranking Tournament will change this state. At the same time, as the manager of Gaogu Xibahe Store, Zhou Zining also hopes One day, a Chinese-style ranking match can be held at Gaogu Xibahe Store.
Despite the rapid development of 9-ball and other events in China, there are still a large number of players in China, especially in northern China, who only participate in Chinese billiards games. Zhou Zining is one of them. Zhou Zining from Xinjiang is the only player from the northwest of China in the field of Chinese billiards. In the earliest period, Zhou Zining had practiced snooker hard and won the national women’s snooker runner-up. However, the women’s snooker competition was too bad. Xiao, Zhou Zining began to practice Chinese eight-ball, with solid foundation and extraordinary talent, Zhou Zining has repeatedly achieved good results in the Chinese billiards arena.
Although she has become the top female player in the field of Chinese billiards, it is difficult for Zhou Zining to make ends meet. Zhou Zining said that last year there were only four rounds of Chinese billiards on a small scale, and due to various reasons, it was inconvenient for many players to participate, and they only participated in one round of competition. In the competition, although Zhou Zining won the championship and won the championship prize of 10,000 yuan, he only played one race throughout the year. Even if he won the prize of 10,000 yuan, it seemed a bit of a drop in the livelihood of the players.
In addition to playing, Zhou Zining also served as the head coach of Gaogu Billiards Club and the store manager of Beijing Gaogu Xibahe Store. The income from these two jobs is Zhou Zining’s main source of income. The economic foundation determines the superstructure. In order to maintain his livelihood, Zhou Zining must allocate more time to daily work. “The energy devoted to the store takes up 80%, and the energy for training is only 20%. Going to the game really It’s not for bonuses, just for the competition,” Zhou Zining said.
In 2012, the China Billiards Association launched the National Chinese Billiards Ranking Tournament, which will change the lives of Zhou Zining and many other players engaged in Chinese billiards to a certain extent. The Chinese Billiards Ranking Tournament will have four sub-stations a year, and the women’s champion in each station will receive a championship bonus of 20,000 yuan. In the final year-end finals, the champion will also receive a higher bonus.
For the National Chinese Billiards Ranking Tournament, Zhou Zining praised, “The game hosted by Xingpai is very good. From the perspective of the women’s team, the number of players participating has increased greatly, such as Fu Xiaofang, Liu Shasha, Han Yu and Zhou Doudou. Players of the national team can participate, which has improved the technical level and appreciation of the Chinese billiards women’s team. The gold content of the championship is very high. For this reason, I also want to allocate more energy to practice.
It is worth mentioning that the venue of this National Chinese Billiards Ranking Tournament is Zhengzhou Gaogu Billiards Club. As Gaogu’s head coach Zhou Zining can be regarded as a home game. At the same time, as the store manager of Beijing Gaogu Xibahe Store, Zhou Zining is quite envious of Zhengzhou Gaogu’s ability to host this Chinese-style billiards event. Zhou Zining also said that if the National Chinese Billiards Ranking Tournament is held in Beijing, he hopes Beijing Xibahe Gaogu can become the host. location.
