As many of you know, at the National BCAPL Championships the WIBCAPL had negotiated a deal with Bad Boys Billiard Productions to supply Diamond tables for the 2013 Great Lakes Regional and the 2014 WIBCAPL State Championships. While this agreement was honored for the Great Lakes Regional, we are unable to get Bad Boys to sign a written contract for the terms set forth by both parties for the 2014 State Tournament.
Now that these final details have been worked out, you can find the entry forms here
With that said, we would like to inform you all that due to circumstances beyond our control, we no longer have a viable option for Diamond tables for the 2014 State Tournament. We are, however, pleased to announce a new and working relationship with John Stich as our table provider for 2014. We are excited to work with John and the quality equipment he will provide.
*Please note that there is a slight increase in administration fees due to the added costs of hosting this event at the Wisconsin Dells Center. This increase will help cover facility rental, parking, and shuttles.
Deadlines for league Operators to send in entries for the 2014 tournament are as follows. To avoid late fees, player's entries need to be entered into Tournament Manager or entries need to be post marked by 4/4/2014.

Want to keep up-to-date on your entry status or the status of the tournament? Go to our Tournament Manager and check your status or as the tournament finishes, see results and pictures in real time.
New changes are coming to our Tournament Manager. We have a new look and feel coming. Along with the new look, we have connected up Tournament Manager with the national BCAPL database so we can get live, accurate player information and sanctioning status. This means that only sanctioned players can be entered into Tournament Manager. There are no exceptions. With this in mind, please get your sanction fees turned into the BCAPL in a timely manner as they will need time to update the database before you can enter your league members into Tournament Manager.
All entries need to be entered into Tournament Manager before sending the hardcopies to the WIBCAPL.
New to the 2014 Tournament
We are adding a new Open Senior singles 8-ball division. You must be 50 years old on the day of the tournament and not on our Masters list. Please keep in mind that you can only play in one 8-ball and one 9-ball singles event. So, if you play in the new Seniors event, you cannot play in any other 8-ball singles event that we offer.
With the exception of M* rated women players, all Women players may play in the open team events as two levels lower than their Woman’s rating. For example, a Woman player rated as a Master would be considered an “A” player in an open team event. Likewise, a Women’s rating of “A” would be considered as a “B” rating in the open team events.
Players from a Wisconsin BCAPL sanctioned league or an Upper Peninsula (UP) of Michigan BCAPL sanctioned league may play in our tournament.
