What Is The Atlantic Challenge Cup?
The Atlantic Challenge Cup pits the best youth from Europe and America in a Mosconi Cup style event in a race to 11 with a possible 21 total matches. On an annual basis, six players (19 years old and younger) on each team, four boys and two girls, battle it out to see who will have the bragging rights across the Atlantic. The event takes place in Europe during odd years and in the United States during even years.
The event takes place July 7-9, 2018 at the New Orleans Convention Center (just prior to the 2018 BCA Expo and BEF Junior Nationals).
