The Australian Blackball International Federation has sent teams to the World Championships and Nations Cup tournaments.
In 2014 an Australian team competed in the World Blackball Championships in Perth, Scotland.
This was the first international blackball event Australia attended.
The World Championships are held biennially and Australia was represented in greater numbers in 2016 in Killarney, Ireland… followed by Bridlington, England in 2018.
Unfortunately, due to the coronavirus pandemic, the 2020 World Championships scheduled for Geelong, Victoria were cancelled, but it is anticipated that Australia will be strongly represented in Albi, France in 2022.
The European Blackball Association is responsible for the Blackball Nations Cup, a tournament in which countries outwith Europe attend only by invitation.
Australia was represented in 2017 in Malta and again in 2019 in Cyprus, where our nation’s first international tournament victory was secured.
A large complement of Australian players travelled to Cyprus and competed in Ladies, Men’s, Seniors, Masters and Under-23s categories.
