More information below.

Intercollegiate Opportunities:

Try-outs are held in mid-fall for the University of Michigan Team Pool Championships (UMTPC) team. The UMTPC is an intercollegiate team event, hosted here at U of M, comprised of about 16 teams from schools in more than a half-dozen states, plus Canada. For more information about the UMTPC, please see the UMTPC page. Membership in the Billiards Club is required to vie for a spot on the UMTPC team.

The best players from our campus represent The University of Michigan at the Association of College Unions International (ACUI) intercollegiate tournaments, which take place throughout the academic year but are concentrated in February and March.  Winners of these sectional and independent qualifying tournament earn an invitation to the ACUI (national) Championships, where the winners receive up to $1,000 in scholarship money.  It is not necessary to be a member of the Billiards Club to compete for ACUi opportunities, but competing regularly with the other best players on campus is highly beneficial to anyone wishing to compete on a regional and national level.
