The Tradition

Although evidence dates the game of billiards back to the fifteenth century, the first billiards tournament wasn't put on record until 1878. Billiards seems to have been on an increasingly fast and growing track ever since but no tournament in recent history had been as popular as the twelve year competition held through 1972 at Johnson City, Illinois. Get billiard enthusiasts reminiscing about great players, great tourneys, great games, great memories, and they yearn for those two weeks at Johnson City that drew the world's best players competing in all the games.

General conversation, a desire to return to tradition, and rapid word of mouth resulted in advanced commitment from players to the first Derby City Classic. The success of the tournament, the glowing accolades from players, and their determination to return to The Derby City Classic, proves that not only was it a sorely missed and legendary tradition immediately re-established with the Derby City Classic, but new traditions and legends were born.
