USHA 4 Wall Nationals & World Championships Combine

Posted on Feb 4 2018 - 2:00am by david

Courtesy of the USHA – Considering how close the traditional Four-Wall dates would be to the World Championships, already slated for Minneapolis, Minn., in August, the USHA Board of Directors voted to combine the annual four-wall event with the Worlds. There were a number of factors that went into the decision, including the No. 1 reason players like to travel to the nationals: The Great Competition.
    
The combined event will guarantee the best competition in every age and skill division at this event and likely large fields, too. The board also voted to award the nationals’ prize funds at the Worlds to make the Open events the most competitive – ever.  
    
The Worlds hosts (Life Time and Steve Johnson) are thrilled with the news and are looking for the biggest and best entry ever at this year’s Worlds.  One-Wall competition begins August 9, followed by Opening Ceremonies on August 12 with Four-Wall beginning on August 13.
