We’re super excited to announce that on November 23, 2019, we'll be organizing THREE
SINGLES QUALIFIER TOURNAMENTS!!!! This is your chance to qualify for the March
regional tournament in PA where you could win a FREE trip to the Las Vegas
Singles National Tournament held at the end of April 2020.
Note – in order to be eligible, you must meet all the following requirements:- Have
played at least ten APA 8 BALL matches in last 2 years - Membership fee must be paid in full- Be an active member of an active Hudson County 8 Ball teamWe will be running three separate tournaments on 11/23/19:
We have some exciting announcements to make regarding
8-Ball Tri-Cup & Gold-Cup for the 2019/2020 Summer, Fall & Spring
Sessions, as well as our league’s participation in the World Championship in
First of all, we will be sending the 8-Ball team with the most
total session points in Hudson County for each session directly to
Gold-Cup – this means you do not have to compete in Tri-Cups and head
straight to the World Qualifier (Gold-Cup)!
Second, as a thank you for your patience as we learn
the ropes, work through improving your APA experience, and, of course, make
mistakes along the way, we will be sending a THIRD 8-Ball TEAM to LAS
VEGAS for the 2020 WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP! This is one more 8-Ball team than our league
has sent in the past as a thank you to all of you.
Now, as we’re just getting started and are unsure what team
growth will look like, we’re not sure if we’ll be able to continue this in the
future, but will do our best to continue to do so in future years as we can
learn to better budget to do so.
Sending 8-Ball teams directly to Gold-Cup means that the
field of teams competing in Gold-Cup will be increasing, so to help fill the
brackets evenly, we will be awarding a few Gold-Cup spots to the teams
with the most total combined points for the Summer, Fall and Spring
sessions. If either team is already
qualified for Gold-Cup, we will move down to the team with the next most total
combined points. We will announce more
details regarding this soon.
And regarding the team from this past Summer Session that
gets the golden ticket (pun intended) to Gold-Cup, we understand that some of
you Stats Hawks out there will notice that they were actually the team with the
third most points. We will be addressing
this with the teams with the first and second most place points (one of which
has already qualified for Gold-Cup), both of whom have already played their
Regarding our 9-Ball divisions, we will be working to
accommodate a similar arrangement for Gold-Cup, and will have an update soon
after we’ve had a chance to work through the brackets.
If you have any questions or comments, please address them
with us directly.
Again, thank you all for your patience, as we work hard to
improve your APA experience. We expect
great things and hope you all do too.
And as always…
HAVE FUN, MEET PEOPLE, PLAY POOL!
All the best,
Your Hudson County League Operators,
Jake & Morgan
