USBA 3-Cushion National Championship - Confirmed Players
Who will be there - how did they get there?
The road to the USBA 3-Cushion National Championship can take many paths. To begin, all former title holders are automatically entered. Next, a series of qualifying events are held throughout the country, where one or more players can win a free entry and expense money to attend. In addition, anyone who participates in a qualifier can enter the event for a reduced entry fee. And finally, a player may elect to compete by paying the full entry fee, even right up to the day of the event (if there are spaces available.)
This year the Nationals (as many refer to the event) will be held June 6-11 at the Casino Del Sol Resort in Tucson, Arizona. We will continue to update the list below as more players confirm their entry into the USBA's most prestigious and anticipated event.
