PABSA conducts 2 marquee tournaments every year – the PAN-AMERICAN SNOOKER OPEN and PAN-AMERICAN SNOOKER SENIORS. The tournaments are generally held together (one after the other and at the same location). The goal is to rotate the hosting of the tournament amongst the major playing nations of the North and South American region. Previous tournaments were held at Canada (2022, 2021), USA (2020) and Brazil will be hosting the 2023 edition.
In accordance with the Rules of PABSA, entrants must be:
1. A citizen of any of the 41 nations which make up the Pan American Olympic Movement – with a special dispensation for legal “Permanent residents” of those 41 nations who have resided for a continuous period of the past FIVE YEARS and have NO PREVIOUS representation for a foreign nation in ANY international snooker championship.
2. PAN-AMERICAN SNOOKER SENIORS is open to people over 50 years of age and with the same conditions as (1) above.
3. An individual member of PABSA.
PABSA intends to increase the tournaments held each year by aiming to conduct BILLIARDS tournaments as well as additional SNOOKER tournaments.
