USBA Announcements

logoUSBA Nationals - It's Official! Thursday May 16 - Sunday May 19. 2019

The date for the 2019 USBA 3-Cushion National Championship has been confirmed. The event will take place May 16-19, 2019 at US Billiards in Houston, Texas. USBA is actively receiving direct entries and entries through play in qualification tournaments. See below for details and a list of confirmed players.

EXPLANATION OF DATE CHANGE: Due to a conflict that unexpectedly arose with the Pan American Championship, USBA had to move the tournament up from the original date so that the national champion could compete in the confederation event. In the past USBA's national champions have been very successful in the Pan American Championship and have gone on to compete in the World Championship as well.

US Billiards is a great location that will have eight Verhoeven tables in tournament condition for the event and several more tables available for practice. Click to see more about US Billiards.

Qualifier events will continue to be scheduled throughout the US. See the most recent schedule of confirmed dates below and in our Tournament Info calendar section.

The 2019 USBA Leadership Team

The USBA is currently under the leadership of a three-member executive board: consisting of Doug Deitel of Texas, Jay Karahan of Texas and Andy Janquitto of Maryland. Their contact information can be found at on the Leadership Page. The executive board will guide the USBA as it plans and conducts the Three-Cushion National Championship Tournament this June in Houston, Texas.
