The Arizona Pool
Leagues was created in February 2003 with our first session
beginning on May 7th. The AZPL was designed with the
casual pool player in mind. We pride ourselves on being
an amateur, beer-drinking, have-fun pool league. It is
meant for the not-so-serious player to come down and have some
fun, shoot some pool, drink a few beers (though not necessarily
in that order) and win some cash too! When I created the
league my thought was 'Why do we need to go to Vegas when we can
have a big Championship right here'. Hence we have 3 State
Championships a year since 2003!
Teams consist of 3 players not including subs. Matches are
a 3-on-3 round-robin. We use a "call ball & pocket" format
of play. Teams play in the league to qualify for the State
Championships. Only 48 teams will qualify. The top
16 teams based on overall strength play on the 9' tables in the
Championships Saturday only. The other 32 teams play on 7'
tables. On Sunday all teams still in contention play on
the 7' tables. First place in the Championships is $2,000.
For teams that lose twice in the Championships fear not as we
have a 3rd elimination bracket that plays out on the 9' tables!
Currently the top 24 teams in
the tournament get paid out! All locals teams win cash
within their division, up to $750 for first with 15 teams.
Men's & Women's MVPs win cash too! The 1st & 2nd Place team in every
division as well as the men's & women's MVP will receive
trophies. The Men's & Women's statewide Most Improved
Players & Top Rookies receive trophies too! Weekly dues are $10 per player.
We also offer a discount if you play multiple nights as well.
Take $2 off your 2nd night of play, $3 off your 3rd if there are
divisions in your area. But wait there's
more! In September we have a 3-day 5-event tournament in
Globe and again in March!
There are several
locations and divisions throughout the state that you can play in. See the
"Divisions of Play" page for a full listing.
Some are now sanctioned with ACS to qualify for the Las Vegas
Nationals in May. Those include Wednesday 2 Lanes
In-House, Sunday Jester's Billiards In-House and the Monday
Flagstaff Traveling divisions! For those of you interested
in Fargo you should check out our Wednesday Q n Brew In-House
