Players who meet eligibility requirements as described below may enter for only $300.00.
Players will gain eligibility through a series of qualifying tournaments. Tournaments will be listed in the USBA Upcoming Tournaments Calendar with the designation “NATIONAL QUALIFIER”. The top four players from the 2015 National Championship will automatically gain paid entry into the 2016 tournament along with all past US National Champions.
