     Shutouts will count for pool play and tournament and will be scored +11 / -11.

Number of teams qualifying for playoffs is dependent on number of tournament entries:

32 teams qualify when entries are 59 and less.

48 teams qualify when entries are 60 - 79.

64 teams qualify when entries are 80 +.

NOTE: When 48-team playoff is used top 16 seed teams will have a bye, the remaining 32 teams will play a one game playoff (lighting round). After the lighting round all matchups will be best of three.

The United States Quoiting Association

Welcomes you to USQA.ORG

 
The USQA National Quoit Tour

 

Most privately organized quoit 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 quoit 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 quoit 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 Quoit 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 Quoit 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 Ring Lord 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 Quoit 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 Quoit Tour.  These flyers include detailed information and directions to the public tournaments included in the Tour.  Download and 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 Quoit Championship is the Flagship event of the National Quoit 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 Quoit teams within North America are welcome to enter and compete for the "World Title" of American Quoit 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!
