Four local eight-ball players will represent Australia on the world stage at the 2019 Blackball Nations Cup to be held in Cyprus later this year.

Glenn Williams has been selected in the Australian Masters team while sons Aaron and Rhys have been picked in the men’s open teams. Crystal Morton will also play in the women’s team. 

Blackball shares many similarities to Eightball, which is more common in Australia, with some slight tweaks to the rules including in relation to foul shots. 

The Nations Cup will take place in November and the players are hoping to fundraise and garner sponsorship to help with the cost of the trip. More details surrounding that will be announced at a later date.
