South Jersey & Bergen County APA Local Team Championships Crown Vegas-Bound Winners – New Video!

Posted on by Alison Fischer

On the weekend of June 20-22, 2014, two of New Jersey’s neighboring APA league divisions, the Bergen County APA & South Jersey APA came together to present their annual League Tournament Championships.

Along with the drama, excitement, and camaraderie that goes along with team pool competition, the teams who traveled from around the region were also fighting for their chance to earn a paid trip to Las Vegas to compete at Nationals…the honor that these teams of varying skill levels work toward each season.

NYC Grind is pleased to introduce our latest ‘Super News Video’, filmed through the weekend at the LTC. Watch in the player below, or click here to watch on Vimeo.

2014 APA South Jersey & Bergen County League Tournament Championships from NYC Grind on Vimeo.

With the LTC being held in Atlantic City at Bally’s Hotel & Casino, the atmosphere of the entire event was certainly that of Vegas buzz, with an added bonus of the location being close to the players. Many of the players competing brought along family and friends on their trip, making for a spectator base of roughly 1,000 people.

As the APA leads the way as the most popular league system in the world (boasting over 265,000 players in North America alone) it is no surprise that this local event is actually one of the largest tournaments in the world.

Bergen County APA director Daniel Pittman noted, “This was the world’s third largest pool tournament, only surpassed by BCAPL Nationals as second and APA Nationals as first. We had 2,500 players competing, with over 3,500 total people including spectators. Next year, it looks to be even bigger, with the possibility of the Philadelphia APA joining in we might be able to surpass BCAPL Nationals in size.”

A total of 196 teams representing cities around Bergen County, NJ and various counties in South Jersey, were participants in the three-day event. “We gave away twenty-five Vegas trips between North Jersey and South Jersey! These territories included Atlantic, Gloucester, Camden, Burlington, Mercer, Essex, and Bergen counties,” Pittman explained.

Along with the competitors and their supporting friends, the LTC at Bally’s brought in industry support support from InsidePool Magazine & NYC Grind, who teamed up to co-produce a free live stream on, sponsored by pool & billiard retailer, which is the nation’s largest and oldest billiards supplier.

Sponsorship was also provided by Qpod, who was joined by their top regionally-based player representative Shaun Wilkie. Players and and fans at Bally’s were also treated to an exhibition by none other than Hall of Famer & former World Champion Earl “The Pearl” Strickland.

The LTC also brought in locally-based vendor sponsors from outside the pool industry:

After each division of competition concluded, NYC Grind contributor Daniel Dagotdot was on-site capturing the teams’ moments of glory as they were awarded their trophies. Here are the resulting winning teams. Check out additional photos in our gallery on the NYC Grind Facebook page below.
