logoUSBA Nationals - URGENT - STOP THE PRESSES!

The dates for the 2019 USBA 3-Cushion National Championship are changing.

We have just been notified of a conflict with the Pan American Championship. Since the USBA always sends its champion to compete in our confederation event, and possibly qualify for the World Championship, we are working to find a new date that will not conflict with the official CPB event and give our players a chance to perform on the International stage.

The room will be the same: US Bida in Houston, Texas. The new dates will be posted here. Please check back.

Qualifier events will continue to be scheduled. See 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.
