2016 Willie McCartney Trophy
Scottish Singles 2011

The 2011 SPA Scottish Singles Championship was held on the weekend of 5th & 6th November, 2011 in the Red Triangle, Cumbernauld. A massive thank you must go to Billy Stirling and Alan Maxwell, proprietors of the club for stepping in at the last minute to host the event. The initial venue was the Murray Owen Centre in East Kilbride but due to South Lanarkshire Leisure “double booking” the venue for this weekend we had to make alternative arrangements, all with ten days notice. I can assure you all as the Tournament Director of your association; a letter is being composed and sent to South Lanarkshire Leisure for a full explanation as to why this happened because it simply isn’t good enough for you the membership.
Ladies Scottish Singles 2011

Riley’s, Main Street, Bellshill was the venue for the 2011 MPK Building Services Scottish Ladies Singles Championship. Defending champion Linda Gillies was in attendance over the weekend attempting to win her 10th Scottish title. It was really difficult to find a venue after South Lanarkshire Leisure somehow double booked our venue in East Kilbride giving us ten days notice to find alternative venues. Thank you to Ross McInnes, SPA Promoter for organising Riley’s in Bellshill for the ladies championship at such short notice.
Lanarkshire Blackball Singles 2011

Cue Here Pool Club in Airdrie played host to the 2011 Lanarkshire Blackball Singles on Saturday 10th December where 64 of Lanarkshire’s top cue men were scheduled to compete for the right to call themselves Lanarkshire’s top pool player. Hot favourite was newly crowned Scottish champion and next season’s Individual Membership no 1 ranked player Pat Holtz, but with from former no 1 Scott Gillespie and other top players from 7 Lanarkshire pool leagues in attendance, competition would be fierce to win the title.
Super 15s A Event

Thirty two teams were scheduled to travel to Craigtara Holiday Park, Ayr on the weekend of 18th – 20th November, 2011 to compete for the title of SPA Super 15’s Team Champions. Four teams pulled out of the event which left twenty eight teams competing for the title.

The teams had been split into four groups of eight with the top six qualify through to the knock out stages. The teams finishing in first and second position in the group went through to the last 16 stage, whereas the teams finishing in third to sixth position had to endure a play-off to book their spot.
Super 15s B2 Event

Sixteen teams were booked to travel to the spectacular Pettycur Bay Holiday Park, Kinghorn, Fife on the weekend of 25th – 27th November, 2011 to compete for the title of SPA Super 15’s Team Challenge Event 2 Champions. Three teams pulled out of the event therefore thirteen teams attended to compete for the title.
Charity Fundraising by the Scottish Champion
FundraisingPat Holtz is going to be raising money for 2 charities over the next year; Marie Curie Cancer and the Childrens Hospice Association Scotland (CHAS) and would welcome donations from anyone within the SPA and/or their friends and family.

He has set up 2 online accounts through Just Giving as follows:
CHAS - Link
Marie Curie - Link

He will be offering my pool services (exhibitions, coaching, presentations) free of charge to raise these funds and would welcome any ideas to help him.

If any pubs, clubs or leagues would like to arrange a date then please get in touch via PM on here, Facebook or email (via JustGiving page).

Please pass this on to anyone who may be interested.

Could I request this item be added to the next SPA meeting agenda so that the information is passed down to all leagues via the reps?

He will update this website and Facebook with any confirmed events and monies raised.

Many thanks in advance for your help.

Scottish Champion & No1 Ranked Player
Super 15s B1 Event

Sixteen teams were booked to travel to the spectacular Pettycur Bay Holiday Park, Kinghorn, Fife on the weekend of 11th – 13th November, 2011 to compete for the title of SPA Super 15’s Team Challenge Event 1 Champions. The team from Bannockburn didn’t attend the event therefore fifteen teams attended the event to compete for the title.
Ladies Tour Event 4 Report

The venue for the 2011 Ladies Blackball Tour Event No. 4 was Hustlers in Rosyth. With the 2011 Scottish Ladies Singles Championship only a week away, there was a very good turnout for this event. Once again, as ladies team manager it pleases me to say that once again there was some cracking pool played throughout this event by various players.
Individual Membership Event 5

Event No. 5 of the Scottish Pool Association Individual Membership series was held in Bonnyrigg Sports Bar, Midlothian on the weekend of 22nd & 23rd October, 2011. This venue was superb with six first class tables for the 128 qualifiers from area heats throughout Scotland. IM5 excludes the top 16 and A & B category players this year so an IM titles was really up for grabs over the weekend.
