Billiards & Games Room

This annual intercollegiate 4-person team tournament--one of only three like it in the country--is held at the University of Michigan in late Fall / early Winter. The 2015 UMTPC, our 12th Annual event, is tentatively scheduled for:

October 30-November 1, 2015

 

General Information About the UMTPC:

This is a 3-day team event, starting on Friday afternoon and ending on Sunday evening, usually around 8PM. This depends largely upon the number of entries and the speed/pace of play. Teams vie for the title in each of three events, plus the coveted all-around title. Trophies and medals are awarded for each event as well as the all-around total. Because time is of the essence, the field is limited to 16 teams. Each team is comprised of 4 players plus an (optional) alternate. Each school must have a coach/advisor. This person can be a staff/faculty member or a reliable, responsible student team member. The coach/advisor cannot play in the tournament. Tournament site is the University of Michigan, specifically the Michigan Union Billiards & Games Room, 2nd floor, 530 S. State, Ann Arbor, Michigan.
