64 players travelled to the L.A.'s Tavern in St Marys do battle for the prize in the 2nd CueWorld Classic 8 Ball Tournament promoted by CueWorld. Player’s came from far and wide, Wagga, Newcastle, Wollongong, Central Coast and the Gold Coast.

It was a HOT weekend and that certainly played a factor in the weekends proceedings, it was a test of staying power and doing your best to deal with the conditions from the heat wave that hit Sydney. CueWorld attracted 28 new players join in the fun and we expect to grow our player base in time for the BIGGER event in early 2011.
