THE UNITED States Snooker Association is planning to stage the 2005 United States National Snooker Championship at the Embassy Billiards Club in San Gabriel, California, from September 2 - 4.


If you are interested in entering this year's Championship and would like to receive the Championship Details and Entry Form document, then please register by visiting the SnookerUSA.com website at:


Once the Championship Details and Entry Form document has been released it will be sent to you by e-mail in the form of a Microsoft Word document.

Registering for the document does not constitute entry into the Championship the entry form must be returned, and a participant's entry is subject to eligibility (a player must declare themselves a citizen of the United States, or a legal resident of the United States for a minimum continuous period of three years).


The Embassy Billiards Club arguably boasts the finest snooker playing facilities in the whole of the United States.

Located within sight of the picturesque San Gabriel Mountains in California, the club has sixteen full-sized 6ft x 12ft snooker tables, four of which are Championship grade Riley Aristocrat Tournament tables, which are all kept in immaculate condition to insure the highest playing conditions (three of the Embassy Billiards Club's Riley Aristocrat Tournament tables as shown in the photograph above, with the fourth located in an adjacent private room).

With a friendly staff and proprietors who are true snooker enthusiasts committed to the sport's development in the United States, the Club will again prove to be an excellent location for this year's event.

There is a THE UNITED States Snooker Association?

Apparently so. Here's the Snooker USA (http://www.snookerusa.com/) web site, "the official website of the United States Snooker Association, governing body of snooker in the United States."

You need to get out more, Popcorn. Over in RSB, we've known about the USSA for a long time. There's also the USBA which governs carom billiards in the US.

I don't know if these are the same tables Alan, but the one in the recent pictures of you with Jen Baretta thingybob looked as bald as a badgers proverbial. You should know it's time to recloth when the words 'Produce of Wales' are clearly visible through it.

The balls looked a bit past their sell-by date too. I don't know how old they were, but I think you should delete the pictures to be on the safe side or risk them being impounded by the Kenyan government.

I wasn't trying to funny, they must really be under the radar I had never heard of them and I'm not under a rock somewhere. Do they ever hold tournaments? Everyone has heard of the USBA they are pretty high profile.
