The United States Snooker Association (USSA), established in 1991 in Chicago, Illinois, is the non-profit governing body for the sport of snooker in the USA as recognized by the International Billiards & Snooker Federation (IBSF), the world governing body of non-professional snooker. Now headquartered in Santa Clara, California, the USSA is pleased to announce the 2014-2015 edition of the popular “USSA National Snooker Tour.” Each event is open to any individual player except for professional snooker players competing on the World Snooker Main Tour; however players must be a member of their respective national snooker governing body or alternatively non US-players can become an associate member of the USSA for a $25 annual membership fee paid onsite at their first event.
The expanded, 12-stop Tour kicks off with a handicapped tournament – the $300-added Prince Snooker Classic – at Prince Club in Brooklyn NY, November 22-23; followed the next weekend by a stop at the Houston Snooker Club in Houston TX, November 28-30.
