South Africa withdraws from Jones Cup

South African men's and women's teams withdrew from the 2009 Jones Cup competition and forced CTBA, Jones Cup's organizing body, revise the game schedule.

After the withdrawal, there are nine men's teams and four women's teams in the tournament.

South Africans refused to pay their own airfare, CTBA said, noting that it could only afford participating teams' accommodation and meal money.
