Hello all,

You will receive an email from Survey Monkey next Wednesday, April 8th and voting will close the following week on April 17th. Please take a few moments to vote next week. An activity for sheltering…
Thank you,

Canceling matches April 7th

Hello all…I guess you all knew that we would not be playing on April 7th as the Shelter-in-Place order is in effect until April 7th. The Board will keep you informed.

Change in WCC

The West Coast Challenge (WCC) will not be held during the weekend of June 18th as previously scheduled due to Covid-19. The LA Board hopes to reschedule in late July or early August if that is possible. More info to come!


Hello SFPA players,
The Board has decided to suspend league play through March 31st. We will reassess then regarding the rest of the season. We are cancelling all of the 8-Ball qualifiers in March and will decide if we will resume the qualifiers and league play into April and for the rest of the season. Our sister leagues are taking similar actions.

This has been a difficult decision that the Board has grappled with and this did not come easily as we all love the game. However, we feel the SF Department of Public Health advisories regarding gathering in groups should be followed. Although this may seem drastic to some, the SFPA has many members who are in high risk groups and this virus is highly contagious and we want to make the problem better, not worse. Our bottom line is protecting the health of our members.

If you have questions, feel free to contact me or any Board member. 

Joan Pettijohn
SFPA League President
