Each Doubles team will register to participate on ONE DAY - either 4/3 or 4/4. On each of those 2 days, we will play down to the TOP 4 teams. The TOP 4 teams from each day (that is, 8 teams total) will then come together on 4/17 at Coconut Bowl to compete against each other for the spot in the National APA 8-Ball Doubles Championship.
All teams who make it to that final day of competition on April 17th will be "in the money." Prize money will include 100% payback of all entry fees PLUS $500 added by the League Office. The FIRST PLACE team will get the majority of prize money to fund their trip to Las Vegas.
