Think you can play eight-ball? Charlotte Hatton will take you on
A girl from Mannum will take on all comers at the Bridgeport Hotel as she prepares for the World Blackball Championships.
Have you got what it takes to beat a teenager at eight-ball?
You might think so, but you probably haven’t played against Charlotte Hatton before.
The Mannum teenager will take on all comers in the Cods Bar at Murray Bridge’s Bridgeport Hotel on July 12.
The event will be a fundraiser for her upcoming trip to the World Blackball Championships.
She’s already a world-beater – she holds the world under-18 girls’ record for speed ball after potting every ball on a pool table in a minute and 10 seconds.
But can she beat you?
If she can’t, there’ll be a free drink in it for you.
The 2022 World Blackball Championships will be held in Albi, in southern France, in October.
Charlotte will compete as part of a six-player under-23 Australian team.
She was named the Mid Murray district’s young achiever of the year on Australia Day 2020.
