ACS To Host USBA 3-Cushion Championships at the 2011 Lucasi Hybrid ACS Nationals
The American CueSports Alliance (ACS) is pleased to announce it will be hosting the USBA 3-Cushion National Championships, May 10-14, during the 2011 Lucasi Hybrid ACS Nationals at the Tropicana Las Vegas, May 7-14. Players from across the country will showcase their skills at one of the most challenging cue disciplines in the world, courtesy of the United States Billiard Association (USBA) and Professor-Q-Ball Promotions.
The USBA Nationals will be played on six brand-new, beautiful top-of-the-line Gabriel’s Imperators carom tables. Specially designed for championship play, these 5’x10’ heated tables boast a newly-design hybrid rail system.
“This will be only the second time that the USBA National Championships have been held outside of a billiard room,” commented event promoter Paul “Professor Q-Ball” Frankel. USBA Secretary Jim Shovak added, “We are particularly pleased to showcase what is really a beautiful sport in such a spectacular venue as Las Vegas. We find that pool players who are introduced to the game of 3-Cushion are fascinated by it. Being among such a large audience of pool players can only heighten the awareness of our sport. This is a chance for all our members to come together in Las Vegas to make this event the starting point of something big. This is a unique presentation of 3-Cushion Billiards that you really don’t want to miss out on. The players and fans of carom and pool sports alike will be entertained and engaged by an experience they will never forget!”
Seating for ACS members and spectators will be free throughout the competition. The United States Billiard Association (USBA) is the governing body for carom billiards in the USA, as recognized by the carom world-governing body – the Union Mondiale de Billard (UMB).
