logoThe World Pool-Billiard Association (WPA) is pleased to announce the new WPA World 8-Ball Championship will take place at The Corner Bank in Toronto, Canada this coming August.  Tentatively scheduled for mid month, the exact dates will be announced very shortly.  This will be the first World Professional Championship in North America in twenty years and the first ever in Canada.

The prize fund for this prestigious event will be over $275,000 CAD and will carry a first prize of $100,000 CAD.  With just over 14,000 square feet of workable space and licensed for over 450 people, this new venue is ideally equipped to host any major event.  Our hosts for this event will be Jim Wych (our promoter) and his partner at The Corner Bank Sports Bar & Grill, John White.

The Corner Bank and the beautiful city of Toronto, cordially welcome all of the world’s very best players to experience some Canadian hospitality in what promises to be a superb tournament.
