The APA has come to Mohave county and is starting to put together a league.  APA is the largest amateur pool league.  They are starting leagues in Kingman, Bullhead City, and Lake Havasu City.  Local players can get more information at the Tack Shed on Sunday at Noon.  Before the Sunday tournament.

APA is a match play league using a handicap system that allows players of all levels compete even at the National Level.  The scoring is more complex and players are rated and played based on their rating.  BCAPL created something similar with the USAPL league.  Match play is nice but unlike round robin play you only play one person per night of play.  The APA local rep is Shane Powell, who has played for BCAPL and USAPL, and he can explain the differences on Sunday.

When we started the dual sanctioned league, we looked at all kinds of leagues.  There was an Arizona league out of Phoenix that came to talk to us.  Because most of the money did not go back to the players, we decided to go with developing our own.  With the player run league, you can make changes and decide where 100% of your money goes.  With a for profit league most of the money is held back to pay for the league operators, franchise fees, national promotion, and the national events.  A smaller percentage goes back to the players unless you are one of the ones lucky enough to win.  To compete in the Nationals you have to have won your division and/or a regional event to get to the Nationals.

The rules are different as well so expect some adjustment there.  Soon we could have a whole other night of play with new and different players.  It is exciting to see how pool has grown in this area in the last 15 years.
