My name is Jamey Gray. As of November 19th, my wife Beverly and I have purchased the APA franchise of Essex and Middlesex counties in MA.  Sal Conti has decided that he has not been able to provide the amount of hands on service that you deserve.  I'm sure that those of you who new and liked Sal will be disappointed he is leaving.  I myself have been long time friends Sal and wish him the best in his future endeavors.


Some of you may already know or recognize me from TV, local tournaments, or just hanging around the area. I have been playing in the APA since 1991. I've played on many teams in CT. I have experience playing in the National Team Events, US Amateur, and Singles Championship.  Some of my other accomplishments included in my Trick shot career are winning a World Championship, performing on ESPN several times, and performing exhibitions all over the world. I am also a member of the New England Pool and Billiards Hall of Fame.


My wife also has been in the league for 20 years and has experienced National Team tournaments.  From or experience, we understand what we have expected as league players.  Because of what we have been a part of, we are committed to providing the best player experience for you. We want to make the APA BIGGER, BETTER, and MORE FUN for everyone. Some ideas we want to implement are introducing additional formats, holding additional tournaments, providing additional prizes and services, and hosting local exhibitions and clinics from notable players. We also plan to make improvements in our newsletters, Facebook page, and Website.


Most importantly, we are committed to be accessible to our players.  We will give you plenty of opportunity to see us and communicate with us during league play, tournaments, and later office hours.  We ask that you take advantage of this opportunity and let us know what your thoughts are.  You are the APA and the best way for us to make this league better is to get your feedback.  We look forward to meeting and talking to each and every one of you.


We are very excited about the future of the APA in this area.


We will always strive to uphold the APA mission "To create VERY satisfied and loyal Members, Teams, and Host Locations who recommend us to others"
