BLACKSBURG, VA -

Hundreds of men and women brought their best pool cues this weekend to southwest Virginia's largest pool tournament.

Sixty-five teams from the Roanoke and New River Valley's competed in the APA National Team Championships.

The winner in each category will go on to compete in Las Vegas.

The event was held at Blacksburg's First and Main shopping center, across from its largest sponsor, Bull and Bones restaurant.

"I think the best part of it is just the camaraderie of the people when teams, even opposing teams are cheering for one another when they make a good shot, it's pretty rewarding," SAID Andy Skerritt, event organizer.

The nine-ball tournament wrapped up last weekend in the same room.
