2014 Wisconsin BCAPL State Tournament
The WIBACAPL is pleased to announce that the 2014 state championships will be held at the Chula Vista Resort in WI Dells, WI on May 7-11, 2014. With the continued growth to this event, the WIBCAPL searched for a larger venue. The Wisconsin Dells Center (otherwise known as "The Dome") will be the area used for this event.

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 4/10/2014. Any entries added to Tournament Manager or mailed after 4/10/2014 but before 4/19/2014 must include the late fees. No entries (except for the Masters division) will be accepted after 4/18/2014, those late Master entries must include late fees.
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.
