USBA National Champions

USBAlogo240X248The United States Billiard Association (USBA) is the governing body for 3-Cushion Billiards in the USA. Each year since 1968 (with only slight interruptions) the USBA and its predecessor organization the Billiard Federation of the USA has held a tournament to crown the National Champion. In 1989 the USBA was formed by the merger of BFUSA and American Billiard Association (ABA.) Here you will find a list of champions by year including the location where the tournament was held and the winner's tournament average.
