About the APA

The APA is the world’s largest amateur pool league with more than 250,000 members competing in 8-Ball and 9-Ball Leagues throughout North AmericaClick here for more information about the history of the APA.
Northern Nevada APA Pool Leagues are thriving!  This is a great way to meet people, play pool, and have fun!  Leagues are running in Reno, Sparks, Sun Valley, Carson City, Fernley, Fallon,  Dayton, and surrounding areas.


We believe strongly that the APA is the best pool league out there.  Here are some of the reasons we believe you will agree with us.

First, the APA is designed so that everyone can play. The Equalizer® Handicap System levels the playing field and allows lower-skilled players the chance to win too. This is different than other leagues where only highly skilled players can compete. 

Second, since the APA is the largest pool league in the world, participating in this league leads to all kinds of fun opportunities.   Our teams here in Northern Nevada (Reno, Sparks, Carson City,  and surrounding areas) will compete in an annual World Qualifier.   The number of teams in our area will determine the number of teams we will be sending to Vegas for the World Pool Championships.   The APA guarantees nearly $1.5 million in national tournament prize money every year. 

Numerous other tournaments are available throughout the year also. Examples include a once-per-session MVP Tournament, Singles Tournaments at the local, regional, and national level, Team Captains Tournaments, Doubles Tournaments, Ladies Tournaments, Juniors Tournaments, and many more!  Tournaments are available for those who are actively participating on an 8-Ball or 9-Ball team.

Finally, this league is about having fun! Great sportsmanship is expected. Poor sportsmanship is not tolerated.
