The 21st Jay Swanson Memorial 9-Ball will once again be held at On Cue Billiards in La Mesa, Calif. on the weekend of Feb. 18-19, 2017.

The Swanee has become one of the most popular tournaments on the West Coast, filling fields of up to 192 players. This year the field is limited to 128 players, so don’t delay, enter now at The entry fee is only $80 and the total prize fund will be $10,000 with a full field.
The tournament will be a race to 8/7, double elimination, alternating breaks and rack your own. It will be played on 9-foot tables using the Magic Ball Racks.
