About the APA

The American Poolplayers Association (APA) is the World’s Largest Amateur Pool League. With nearly 250,000 members throughout the United States, Canada and Japan, the APA awards nearly $2 million in guaranteed prize money every year during the APA Championships in Las Vegas! In the APA, everyone can play… anyone can win – even you!

Leveling the the Playing Field

The Equalizer® system lets players of any skill level compete against each other evenly.

With The Equalizer®, it’s feasible for a beginner to have a nearly equal chance in a match against a more highly skilled player. The Equalizer® aids the lesser skilled player by dictating mathematically that he/she needs to win fewer games or points than his opponent to win the match. (In golf and bowling, you give or get strokes or pins.)


To saturate every market with the fun and excitement of APA pool!


Our growth strategy is simple: To create VERY satisfied and loyal Members, Teams, and Host Locations who recommend us to others.

We Believe In...

Above all else, APA believes in earning and maintaining trust with our franchisees and members through honesty, integrity, respect and fairness. We ask everyone in our network to adhere to our Vision and strive for personal and professional success.
