2021 national tournament receive automatic berths. Additionally, each prior champion has a
reserved spot. The remaining places will be determined by qualifying tournaments or by direct
The entry fee for a person who qualifies is paid by the qualifier organizer. For anyone
who plays in a qualifier and does not qualify, the entry fee for the nationals is $300. A person
can also enter the nationals directly for $510; however, players who played in a qualifier have
priority over players who did not play in a qualifier.
The nationals are open to USBA members who are citizens or permanent residents of the
United States. No exceptions. Each player must be willing and able to travel abroad to represent
the United States in the Pan American Championship and in the World Championship. A player
must play in the nationals to play in the Pan American Championship.
To become a member of the USBA, go to www.USBA.net. Membership is $50 per year
or $135 for 3 years.
For a qualifier, the entry fee is $110. For every 5 players, there is 1 qualifier. For each
group of 5 players, the organizer sends to the USBA $350 ($300 entry fee for the qualifier and
$10 per player for the USBA sanction fee). The remaining $200 is used at the discretion of the
organizer (as prize money, for travel expenses, toward the entry fee of a second player, or to
offset costs and expenses). Example, with 10 players, there are 2 qualifiers. The organizer sends
$700 to the USBA ($600 for the entry fees for the 2 qualifiers plus $100 for sanction fees of $10
per player). The remaining $300 is used by the organizer. The organizer of each qualifier will
determine the tournament format, including the length of games, as well as the dress code. It is
recommended that games be at least 25 points.
