2018 Rule changes for USQA events (updated 1/21/18)

Leaners:  The side of the mushroom constitutes the “top“ of the pin.  So a quoit that is touching the top 
of the pin (or by definition now, the side of the mushroom) and is above the pin will be ruled a leaner. 

Horizontal throwing distance:  A quoiter is allowed to move half the distance between your pin and the pin in the pit next to yours.  Both of a throwers feet must remain within ½ the distance pin to pin with neighboring pits or 5’ on open sided pits.  The same applies to playoffs. 

Tournament Director:  Any game situations not addressed directly by the official USQA rules may be addressed by the Tournament Director and/or a majority of present board members.

Ringers: The pin must break the surface of the hole in the quoit in order to be a ringer.  The pin does not stretch indefinitely into the sky.  So a hoovering quoit is not a ringer.

Points:  In 2018 pool play points will remain the same but the playoff points awarded will be as follows.

32 - 64 team playoff                                      Singles                      
  Winner 100                                                    Winner 200                  
Runner up  - 80                                              Runner up  - 160       
 3rd and 4th  - 60                                             3rd and 4th  - 120        
5 – 8th  - 40                                                    5 – 8th  - 80                
8 – 16  - 25                                                     8 – 16  - 50                 
16 – 32  - 10                                                   16 – 32  - 20

The USQA national Quoits Tour

Most privately organized quoits tournaments held annually in Eastern Pennsylvania are "closed" Invitational-
type tournaments, restricted in
size and limited to an exclusive group of friends or club members.  Because 
of this, there are many other casual and recreational quoits players in America who would jump at the 
chance to compete in public tournaments, especially for large cash prize awards.  Until now, there was 
little or no opportunity to pitch in a large public quoits tournament anywhere in North America.  
Fortunately, the United States Quoiting Association can now provide that opportunity to everyone - not 
only at our original, once-per-year World Quoits Championship, but, since 2005, all USQA Quoiting Events 
each year - all open to the public, Men, Women and Youth over 12 years of age.

The USQA National Quoits Tour is expected to consistently increase in exposure, size, and payouts each year.
The Tour currently
consists of  The USQA Blind Draw in April, the Spring Open in May the Summer Open in
June, the Danville Heritage Festival in July, the Mohnton Fish & Game Tournament in August and on the 
same weekend in September The World Quoits Championship and the USQA Singles Championship.  Links 
to tournament information with details for each of these events are posted at the top of this page.
Get yourself a pitching partner for one or even all of the tournaments this year - you will have a great time,
and an opportunity to win some very nice prize payouts!

We also have a full-page color FLYER published here on our site to help advertise the National Quoits Tour.
These flyers include
detailed information and directions to the public tournaments included in the tour.  
Print a copy of the flyer for your own reference, or print a large
quantity and distribute them to your 
pitching friends. You may also help us spread the word
about these great events by posting the flyers 
in public places in your local community!                

 

The USQA World Quoit Championship

The USQA World Quoits Championship is the Flagship event of the National Quoits Tour. This tournament 
held every September as the largest USQA event of the season.  It is also the most popular Event on the
tour.  Any Quoits team within North America are welcome to enter and compete for the "World Title" 
of American Quoits pitching. 

The first World Championship was held in a large field near Gilbertsville, PA in September 2003. 30 sets of 
dirt pits and two large canopy tents for shelter were setup for the event. The tournament attracted 60 
quoit teams - mainly drawing from a 30-40 mile radius around the Pottstown area. Unfortunately, heavy 
rains fell all day, creating a slimy swamp-fest that will not soon be forgotten. The following year, the 
Championship was moved to a nicer location on private property near Amityville, PA.  Once again the 
weather was uncooperative on the scheduled date, due to even heavier rain and blowing winds from 
Hurricane Ivan. That year, the tournament was wisely postponed two weeks to the first Saturday in 
October, which luckily was a beautiful, sunny day. Almost 90 teams competed that year.

After another season of perfect weather in 2005 at the quoit grounds in Amityville, the USQA moved to an
even larger site for the National Tour the following season. All the USQA events for 2006, except for the 
Danville Iron Heritage Festival, were held at the Bethel Fire Company in Bethel, PA,  about 10 miles 
northeast of Reading PA and about 18 miles northeast of Harrisburg, PA. This location will hopefully 
provide the USQA with more capabilities to expand the National Tour 
in the coming years, making it bigger and better than ever!
