The annual Great Southern Eight Ball Classic was held at two different venues over the weekend, featuring teams from Narrogin, Katanning and Albany eight ball clubs.

The A-grade competition was played at the New Cornwall Hotel in Narrogin and the B-grade was held at the Stirling Club in Albany.

The classic is a round-robin event, with every A-grade and B-grade team playing each other over the weekend.

In the A-grade the result came down to the last round of fixtures to see who would win the venue competition, with a three-way tussle between Albany 1, Narrogin 1 and Albany 2.
