As many of you may have anticipated, we are once again changing the dates of our annual Super Billiards Expo. The event has been pushed back to June 24-27, 2021
We’ve been monitoring local regulations and have been in discussions with local personnel in order to determine the best course of action. At this juncture, the facility is limited to 50% capacity. Although this makes our event possible, with some restrictions – it is not ideal.
Since the vaccine is now being rolled out, we feel it is prudent to push the event back a few more months to allow more time for people to be protected. In addition, the weather will be warmer, so traditional “flu season” will be a bit further behind us.
The Covid landscape is changing weekly, so we will post another update 60 days ahead of our newly anticipated dates. We are optimistic that June will be a good time for our event to resume. We’ll have some enhanced safety guidelines in place, but we are all fairly used to these by now.
If you are a player in our Players Championship Series of events, your entry will be rolled over to new dates; if you cannot attend these new dates, you can visit this page and request a refund. Note that you can wait and do this later as well, in case we need to change the dates again – which unfortunately is a reality in these uncertain times. If you are in the TAP League Rally in the Valley Event, you should receive notice from the National office as to how these changes effect you.
We will post a follow-up message on April 15 with further details or changes.
Thanks again for your patience and understanding. We hope everyone is healthy and safe and look forward to seeing you all soon!

We understand that many of you are curious about the upcoming 2021 Super Billiards Expo. As we all know, the news and local regulations change often. This makes planning a large event such as this quite problematic.
As Covid continues its course, we are remaining optimistic about the upcoming show. Of course, the safety of all attendees is paramount – but we must also adhere to local regulations, which change often.
That said, we do have plans to help keep the show safer for all attendees. Since we are all living with this in our daily lives, we feel as though everyone will already be familiar with any necessary steps and we can all have a good time while being responsible as well. We all may not enjoy these extra steps, but we’re all aware of why they are needed.
Ultimately, we are at the whim of local regulations at this moment. Thankfully the vaccine is being distributed and overly cautious actions are being eased. We’re confident that these things will pave the way for us to re-open the doors and have another great show! Even if it may be a little different this year…
Our plan is to make a final decision in the coming weeks. Like you, we’re keeping our eyes on the news daily. We are trying to wait as long as possible to see how things are progressing, but we realize everyone needs to plan ahead for travel and such.
To that end, we will post a new message here on Feb 15 – a full 60 days before doors are scheduled to open. At that point, we’ll discuss details regarding our plans to proceed or announce rescheduled dates, if needed. We thank you for your patience and understanding in these difficult times.
