The United Pipe Clubs of America (UPCA) was organized in 2002 as a national federation of pipe clubs in the United States. Its purpose is to promote and protect the interests of the American pipe smoking community by encouraging and assisting in the formation of local pipe clubs and actively supporting their activities, including pipe shows and pipe smoking competitions.  The UPCA annually sponsors national and regional pipe smoking contests.

Welcome to our new website

We have a whole new look, plus some neat features.  For example, people are now able to register online for the UPCA National Slow Smoke competition.  Member clubs can now renew online, post local events on the site, create photo albums, and a custom web page for each club. We hope to add more features as we go, such as a UPCA store front with branded merchandise.

2017 UPCA National Pipe Smoking Contest - 5/7/17

The UPCA will once again be holding its National Pipe Smoking Contest on the last day of the Chicago Pipe Show. 

We are enthusiastic about this year's contest pipes, which are hand-made Amorelli billiards.  Each pipe is laser-engraved with tobacco leaves.

UPCA is funded through nominal dues by participating clubs and by contributions from businesses and organizations within the pipe smoking community. We thank and recognize our contributors by displaying a logo and a link to their website. Please patronize these generous folks.
