Members Only Tournament

Annual Competition

Taken at the 5th annual Members Only Tourney at Southaven Recreation Center in Southaven, MS

2016 marked the first year of our annual “Members Only Tournament”. To be specific it should be called the verified Members Only Tournament since only verified members qualify and can participate. What is a verified member and how do you become one? Well, it’s quite easy. You just have to be a real person! A ‘Verified Member’ is a member who is not just an avatar behind a keyboard, but a real live human with a real face and a real name.

So in other words, to become verified, all you have to do is have another verified member who knows you, vouch for you. If you do not know any of our verified members, simply introduce yourself to any one of us. You will always find at least a few members at all of the one pocket tournaments all over the country and probably a number of us at the Derby City Classic and/or US Open One Pocket event every year.

Once you become a verified member, we just ask that you participate! Join in on a discussion! Post a topic of your own! Get involved! Help us grow this game!

Tournament Eligibility Requirements

  • Verified Member status
  • Minimum of 6 months as a registered user on the forums
