The 42nd U.S. Open 9-Ball Championships is Now Official
Pat Fleming
May 9, 2017
This most prestigious WPA Sanctioned 9-Ball tournament is on!  Barry Behrman, the U.S. Open Founder, passed away one year ago and passed the reins on to Pat Fleming of Accu-Stats who will once again produce this classic event.  
 
For a third straight year, the Sheraton Norfolk Waterside Hotel is welcoming us back with open arms.  The Sheraton, with its $10 million revitalizations, located in Norfolk, VA USA will treat our players and spectators to outstanding accommodations which include discount rates on hotel rooms and a variety of meal options including food stations in the ballroom as well as full course menus in their City Dock Norfolk restaurant.
 
Also, this year, you won’t have to go very far for an added vacation experience.  In addition to the convenience of the Sheraton, next door, the city of Norfolk opened The Waterside District, an incredible project that I promise you will remember forever!  For more details,
