In the APA, Everyone Can Play - Anyone Can Win!

 The APA Ladies 8-Ball Championship

Congratulations to The Ladies Division winner "Nothing But Smoke", Team Captain Carol Motley. They have earned one of the spots in the Ladies Vegas Cup Finals which is being held on June 7th. Wild Card draw is tonight, Tuesday, at 8pm.

There will be a Jack & Jill Tournament at Breakaway on Saturday April 19th. This IS NOT a qualifier. The winner is going to Vegas. There are two slots available to play in Vegas and I will try to purchase more just like I did for Scotch Doubles.

APA Appreciation Day
Breakaway Billiards and Virginia Peninsula APA would like to offer free pool to all APA members on Saturday April 26th from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm. Come out for some free pool and free lessons. Hope to see all of you there.

Hey everyone.  I was able to purchase 3 more Scotch Doubles slots which were filled by:
Vicki Highsmith & Corbin Montgomery
Caleb Jones & Nick Koshak
Tim Miller and Marcia Shinske
These teams had all played in the qualifiers and made it to the finals. Congratulations to all of you and looking forward to seeing everyone play in Vegas.
Also, Congratulations to Theresa (Hernandez) Blake for winning the Regional Singles Qualifier. She will be playing out in Vegas as well. 

My helper for all of the paperwork has moved away and I have someone new. This person is being trained as quickly as possible so PLEASE bear with me/us as we work on getting the paperwork done correctly and in a timely fashion. Team captains, please ensure that the paperwork is correct (i.e. : team numbers, player numbers, player names and correct player on top), complete and turned in on time. It makes it much more difficult to accurately enter the data if the paperwork is not correct. Thank you for your understanding and help with this matter. 

 The APA 9-Ball Doubles ChampionshipThe APA 8-Ball Doubles Championship 

Congratulations to the winners for a great played and hard fought day of pool. Best of luck to all of you in Vegas as we cheer you on. And the winners are:

Dave Sassi and Pat Dorsey
Kathy Repass and Greg Huffstetler
Aldea Young and Thomas O'Bryan
Susan Marr and Gary Hicks 


Join the APA!

While some membership cards require you to be able to jump the cue ball, bank it off three rails and sink the 8-Ball blindfolded, getting an APA Membership Card is much easier.

Having fun, meeting new people and playing pool is what the APA is all about.. You don't have to be a pool shark, because in the APA -- everyone can play and anyone can win. The APA wants beginners and novices, because it is the AMATEUR Poolplayers Association. No other organization in pool gives ordinary players a chance to win a share of nearly $1.5 MILLION guaranteed cash and prizes paid out through its national tournaments. 

How does the APA do it? It uses The Equalizer® handicap system to determine the amount of games a player has to win in order to capture the match. It allows a novice to win less games than a more-skilled opponent to win a match.
