The annual Vegas Masters State Championship Tournament Series began in 2007. Our State Champions advance to TAP Nationals to compete in 8-ball and 9-ball events against players from all over the United States and Canada! TAP Las Vegas has awarded over $150,000 in the Vegas Masters events and taken over 200 local players to great destinations to include Myrtle Beach, Orlando, Chicago, Nashville, Dallas, Philadelphia and even given players a Vegas vacation!

In 2017, Nationals is back in Vegas at the Orleans on October 21 through 26 giving all of our local qualified players a chance to experience Nationals, as there are several buy-in events to include singles, scotch doubles and a dream team event!

In 2018, we'll be heading off to Chicago to compete at the famous Pheasant Run Resort!!

The Vegas Masters tournament series brings best of the best together from all over Vegas to compete in singles and team 8-ball and 9-ball tournaments to advance and win trips to exciting destinations and compete at TAP Nationals!
