Tournament Programs/Charts Never ran a USBA tournament before? Are you a little scared? Well, don’t be. It is really not that hard. Your first USBA tournament will be the hardest simply because you have never done it before. That’s normal. Everything is scary if you haven’t done it before. I was scared too the first time. Once you finish your first USBA tournament, it will become much easier and you will be more confident. Benefits of having a USBA Tournament: 1) If you are a USBA Room Member, you receive commissions from the USBA as well as the lowest prices on Simonis Cloth, Aramith Balls, Tiger Cues, Accu-Stats DVD's, etc. 2) If you add money to the event, the USBA Sponsors will match it 50% 3) Advertises the USBA to all players 4) Creates more USBA Members 5) Supports the USBA in its endeavor to promote the game of billiards and send its Champions to compete in World Tournaments 6) Tournament will be announced by email to USBA's extensive email list 7) Tournament will be announced in Professor-Q-Ball publication 8) Tournament Results, Charts and Pictures will be published on the USBA website and in Professor-Q-Ball publication (room permitting) If you have never run a tournament before, then we will explain, step-by-step, how to run a tournament. You can use a computer/laptop and printer at the event, or if you can’t do that, you can run it manually. Either way it is being done by many people, and you can do it too.

USBA 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.
