Tri Cups will start at the end of the Summer Session, which will be the next session and beginning of the new league year.
Tri Cups will be held at the conclusion of every APA League session beginning with Summer 2014 session. The division winners and runner ups will advance to a Tri Cup tournament. Each of these teams will be competing for a slot in the City Tournament. Six (6) teams will advance from the Summer session, 5 from the Fall and 5 from the Spring. This will produce a City Tournament of 16 teams to compete for the all slots available at the APA National 8 & 9 Ball Tournaments.
Not only will the teams be competing for the advancement to the City Tournament, but they will also be competing for cash awards. It is estimated that each Tri Cup will have a purse of $6,000 to $8,000. This number will vary based on the number of 8 & 9 Ball teams, the number of weeks in the session, etc. Each division winner advancing into the Tri Cup will automatically be in the Money!!
To fund the Tri Cup tournaments weekly team fees will increase by $5.00. This is an increase of only $1.00 per match!
Please remember these will be separate tournaments for each format, both 8 & 9-Ball.
We hope that each of you will share in the same excitement that we experienced with your Division Representatives.
Any additional information can be provided to you from your Division Representative, or the League Office.
