Event rescheduled for Sept 1-11, 2021 - RIO ALL SUITE HOTEL - LAS VEGAS The safety of our members and staff remains our top priority. The rise of COVID-19 cases and tighter restrictions being implemented around the world has created the need to reschedule the event. The new dates of September 1-11 will help ensure everyone’s safety.
Revised eligibility requirements Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the difficulty it has placed on our leagues, the minimum eligibility requirements have been revised. To be eligible, players must meet at least one of the following criteria:
Had a 2020 BCA Pool League membership and played at least four (4) weeks in a single division session during the 2020 calendar year; or…..
Have a 2021 BCA Pool League membership and play at least four (4) weeks in a single division session between Jan 1, 2021 and the registration deadline of Aug 2, 2021
Original player requirement eliminated In the past, most 8-ball team divisions have required at least two (2) players from the same league team be on the team and play each round. That "orginal player" requirement is being eliminated for 2021. Teammates for the Platinum, Gold, Silver & Bronze divisions only need to be from the same league.
Scotch doubles can be male/male, male/female or female/female Although this was introduced in 2020, it’s important to highlight it once again. Scotch doubles teams may consist of male/male, male/female or female/female.
CSI Team division added For those who don’t have the opportunity to join a BCA Pool League, especially teams from other leagues such as VNEA, ACS, TAP, APA, etc., we have added the CSI 8-Ball Team division. Although players must be CSI members ($40/year), the entry fee is greater than the BCA Pool League divisions and there is no added money, this division does allow everyone to experience team play at the CueSports International Expo. To compete in the larger BCA Pool League divisions with larger prize money and lower entry fees, encourage your League Operator to make your league a member of the BCA Pool League.
Pro events return Predator and CueSports International (CSI) are excited to announce the return of the $100k added Predator World 10-Ball Championship and the $25k added Diamond Las Vegas Open during the BCA Pool League World Championships. These events have become two of the most anticipated pro events in the world and you will get to enjoy them again in person for free in the CSI Arena.
