USBA Tournaments

As challenging as the game of three cushion billiards may be, it is even more exciting when you put all your skills to the test in one of our USBA sanctioned or endorsed events. Every month in cities all across the United States, players face the challenge in head-to-head competition at all skill levels. There are Open tournaments where the best in the country often face the best in the world who travel to play for cash prizes and bragging rights. And there are many tournaments restricted to B class players and C (our beginners). You will even find shot contests held where just making a few basic shots can net you some big bucks and some smiles. Check out all the tournament information right here!
