As a result of the fiasco caused by the covid cancellations, our Refund Policy has changed. 

If you need to withdraw for any of our Players Championship events, for any reason, you must let us know using this form at least 2 weeks before the start of the Expo.

We will have you removed from the event and schedule a refund of your Entry Fee. It may take up to two weeks to have your refund processed.

If it has been over 180 days since you signed up, we will be unable to reverse the charges to your card, and will have to mail you a check instead. Checks will be mailed after the close of the Super Billiards Expo. 

NOTICE REGARDING FORCED CLOSURE & SHUTDOWNS

In the highly unlikely event of another forced government shutdown due to illness, or any other unforeseeable emergency, all entries will be carried over to the next scheduled Super Billiards Expo. If you are unable to attend the newly scheduled dates, a refund may be requested and will be processed after the close of the rescheduled show. 

Want to play in more than one event?
Players are welcome to play in more than one event at the Super Billiards Expo. Please be aware that it is possible that match times might conflict, especially in the later rounds. We do our best to avoid conflicts, but it is impossible to control in events of this size and in this timeframe.

>>  IMPORTANT  <<
If a conflict in match times does arise, you will be forced to choose one event to play and one to forfeit. Unfortunately, we do not have the time and space to rearrange matches for players.

The Wait List feature is for ADVANCE ONLINE ENTRIES ONLY – and it expires one week prior to the Expo.

The Wait List Feature will allow you to signify your desire to play, and to be notified by email if a spot opens up due to cancellations. YOU MUST follow the link in the email and enroll within 72 hours to be added.

THIS LIST EXPIRES – This list is for automated online convenience only, it does not hold you at a spot at the Player’s Meeting. 

All registrations and Wait Lists are cut-off one week prior to show time so that we can prepare the brackets for the event.

After that point, the Wait List expires and all last-minute changes are handled at the Player’s Meeting by the Tournament Staff.
