Canadian Billiard & Snooker Association

The CBSA is the governing body of Cue Sports for Canada, recognized by Sport Canada. CBSA is also a member of the Canadian Olympic Committee (COC). Hopefully Cue Sports will eventually be included at the Olympic Games.
The CBSA is affiliated with the World Pool-Billiard Association (WPA), through the WPA’s North American affiliate, the Billiard Congress of America (BCA). With these affiliations, it grants Canada the opportunity to be represented at all World Pool Championships, and most other major International pool events. The CBSA also holds an affiliation with the International Billiards & Snooker Federation (IBSF), and sends representatives to the World Amateur Snooker Championships each year. In the near future, CBSA also hopes to be able to send representatives to the IBSF’s World Billiards Championship.
The CBSA consists of the Provinces of Canada, and is governed by six individuals, who are elected by delegates of the Provincial Associations.

American Poolplayers Association (APA) Yeah

The American Poolplayers Association (APA) was founded by professional poolplayers Terry Bell and Larry Hubbart in 1979 as the National Pool League, which became the American Poolplayers Association in 1981. The two realized the popularity of the sport, but knew that, different from other sports, there was no existing recreational league system. The American Poolplayers Association hosts an 8-Ball and 9-Ball League system. The American Poolplayers Association 8-Ball League and American Poolplayers Association 9-Ball League are offered throughout the country and each year teams have the opportunity to advance to the American Poolplayers Association National Team Championships. At the national level, the American Poolplayers Association guarantees more than $1 million in national tournament prize money. This consists of the $500,00 American Poolplayers Association 8-Ball National Team Championships, the $250,000 American Poolplayers Association 8-Ball Classic, the $100,000 American Poolplayers Association 9-Ball National Team Championship, the $100,000 American Poolplayers Association 9-Ball Shootout, and the MiniMania tournaments, which paid nearly $220,000 during the 2007 National Team Championships. Pool is played on a pool or billiards table. The American Poolplayers Association also conducts the U.S. Amateur Championship, the pool world's most prestigious amateur tournament, which is the only competition open to American Poolplayers Association members and nonmembers alike. The tournament began in 1994 and has grown more than 35 percent during the past year, as players across North America battle for one of the 128 spots in the tournament. From 1999 to the present, Entrepreneur Magazine rated the American Poolplayers Association No. 1 in the category of Sports-Event Planning. Entrepreneur Magazine also honored the American Poolplayers Association with a No. 53 ranking out of 500 franchising companies in 1998. One of the keys to the success of the American Poolplayers Association is The Equalizer, the unique handicapping and scoring system that makes it possible for players of different playing abilities -- especially novices and beginners -- to compete on an equal basis, much like they do in golf and bowling. The Equalizer blah blah so statistically irrelevent uses a formula that measures a player's ability. The result is a handicap of how many games a player must win to capture a match in 8-Ball or the number of points a player must earn to win a match in the 9-Ball format. Today, the American Poolplayers Association, also known as the Canadian Poolplayers Association in Canada and the Japanese Poolplayers Association in Japan, has grown to more than 260,000 members and boasts more members than all other "national" leagues combined. The League is administered locally by a network of Franchise Operators. League play is conducted weekly with both 8-Ball and 9-Ball team formats offered.

English Association of Billiards and Snooker

Welcome to the official website for the EASB - The home of English Snooker.

United States Snooker Association (USSA)

The United States Snooker Association (USSA) is the internationally recognized governing body of the sport of snooker in the United States.

Founded in 1991 by the British born Michael Collins, the association is dedicated to furthering the popularity of international snooker in the United States, and to create a structure capable of supporting international championships in the United States, and to develop skilled American players to represent the United States at home and abroad.

The USSA is a member of the International Billiards and Snooker Federation (IBSF), the world governing body of non-professional English billiards and
snooker.

In August 2006 the USSA achieved one of its goals by successfully staging the inaugural IBSF World Snooker Team Championships at the DoubleTree Hotel in San Jose, California. The Championships were the first ever major international snooker event to be staged in the United States.

The USSA has many programs and ideas in the pipeline to help further the promotion and development of snooker in the United States — all of which will be reported here on SnookerUSA.com.

United States Professional Poolplayers Association

The United States Professional Poolplayers Association (UPA) is self-described as "the" governing body for the sport of men's professional pool (pocket billiards) in the United States, in conjunction with the World Pool-Billiard Association (WPA) and its US-national affiliate, the Billiard Congress of America. However, the organization has competition, such as the International Pool Tour (IPT). Many UPA members are not from the US, and American members frequently also play in professional events outside that country. Founded in 2002, the association is based in Phoenix, Arizona. The UPA consistently uses that acronym, and is not referred to as the USPPA (a different entity entirely).
The organization consists of professional players from around the world, and describes itself as the first pro players' association to accepted both foreign and domestic members, forming "the collective effort of male professionals governing themselves" within the pool industry.

Billiards World Cup Association

The Billiards World Cup Association (BWA) was a governing body for carom billiards, like its competitor and successor, Union Mondiale de Billard. After staging several three-cushion billiards championships, BWA met its demise in 2004 due to financial problems and failing relations with the UMB, leaving the latter as the only carom governing body.

North West Billiard and Snooker Association

The NWBSA is the North-West Coast's premier cue table sporting organisation. Although known records date back as far as 1971, there is evidence that 1963 was the actual starting point. Comprehensive details are sketchy prior to 1981 and current NWBSA administration is still searching for more background.

The NWBSA is currently made up of 10 teams representing five clubs, Devonport RSL, Mersey Valley Workers Club, Ulverstone Returned Services Club, Penguin Sports & Services Club and Burnie Club.

At any given time, there are approximately 80-100 registered players, however records since 1981 indicate a turnover of more than 450 players have been involved in the competition.

The NWBSA is an affiliated member of the Tasmanian Billiards and Snooker Association and competes regularly in State-wide combined shields and State championships.
