9-Ball Local Team Championships 
 
 
 
 
The Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill APA 9-Ball Local Team Championships (also known as City Tournaments) are held three times a year, following the conclusion of each session. Every tournament is an opportunity to qualify for the APA National Team Championships held in Las Vegas, NV at the Riviera Hotel and Casino. The number of teams qualifying each year is based on our 9-Ball team count during the Spring Session preceding the NTC's.  Currently, we are qualifying five 9-Ball teams a year.  
 
To be eligible to compete in a 9-Ball Local Team Championship, the team must earn their slot during regular session league play.  Teams winning Big Dawg, Division Playoffs, and the Best of the Rest Tournament qualify for the 9-Ball LTC each session.  Teams must stay active the next session with at least a 50% roster (4 of the same members) to be eligible to compete in the 9-Ball Local Team Championships.
