Watch Us Grow

Run by pool players, for the pool players. Striving to grow the game of pool across the state of Wisconsin.

As you may know, the current sanctioning dues for BCAPL are $15 per player. What you may not know, is that the WIBCAPL receives only 10% of those dues back from the National BCAPL. That means from the 4,000 BCAPL players in the state of Wisconsin, $60,000 is sent in and the WIBCAPL only receives $6,000 back. This money is then contributed to the added money at the state tournament.

Our sole mission is to promote the sport of amateur pocket billiards in the state of Wisconsin. We feel it is crucial to the development of pocket billiards to offer something that more of our players can benefit from. The main benefit to Wisconsin players sanctioning with the BCAPL is the ability to compete at the National BCAPL Championships. However, over the last five years, Wisconsin’s participation has been an average of 4% of the WIBCAPL sanctioning body and has been in decline each year. With that said, it is with much excitement that we share this news with you.

The future of Wisconsin pool lies within an independent association, but we need your help in making this a very successful first year! We are inviting all currently sanctioned BCAPL leagues and welcoming any non-sanctioned leagues to join the future of Wisconsin pool: the Wisconsin State Poolplayers Association. The WSPA will have no ties to a national organization and will be its own independent association, keeping 100% of our sanctioning fees right here in the state of Wisconsin!

What the WSPA does for you:

  • Lower sanction dues
  • One sanction fee per league year
  • Easier startup of new leagues
  • Easier ways to sanction
  • Bigger state tournaments

What the future holds:

  • Reduced green fees
  • Reduced administration fees
  • More added money
  • Even bigger state tournaments
  • Player ratings committee

We urge you the players to encourage your League Operator to sanction with the WSPA, as you must shoot in a WSPA sanctioned league to compete in the WSPA State Singles and Team Championships. Leagues still can and are encouraged to sanction with the BCAPL if a number of players participate in team play at Nationals. Please be aware that you do not need to shoot in a BCAPL sanctioned league to compete in National singles and doubles events and can simply do so with a BCAPL Player Membership.
