The Capital Region APA has been running leagues for over 25 years and is the largest pool league in the Capital Region serving over 900 members and over 150 teams. Having fun, meeting new people and playing pool is what we are all about. You don't have to be a pool shark, because in the APA, everyone can play and anyone can win. The APA wants beginners and novices, because it is the AMATEUR Poolplayers Association. No other organization in pool gives ordinary players a chance to win a share of nearly $1.5 MILLION guaranteed cash and prizes paid out through its national tournaments.
How does the APA do it? It uses The Equalizer® handicap system to determine the number of games a player must win in order to capture the match. It allows a novice to win less games than a more-skilled opponent to win a match.
