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 $1,500.  Championship winners are eligible to play in our annual AZPL State Championship Singles Tournament with $1,000 added held every July!  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 16 teams in the tournament get paid out!  Every team in the Phoenix metro area receives point money (anywhere from 25 cents to 5 cents a point depending on where they fall in the overall standings).  The top four teams in each local division win cash prizes as well up to $750 for 1st place w/ 8 teams being paid out in a 16-team division.  The 1st & 2nd Place team in every division as well as the men's & women's MVP will receive trophies.  There are four divisions based on skill levels as well.  Those division leaders get a sweet 7pm start time in the Championships only 4 wins away from the title match and also 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.  In addition we have a singles tournament with $500 added every season!  But wait there's more!  In September we have a 3-day 5-event tournament in Globe and we travel to Flagstaff in March to hold another 3-day 5-event tourney!
   
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 division. 
 
This site is updated daily.  We keep track of several different team and player statistics including points, wins, 30-point games, winning streaks, match average and our own MVP rating in addition to many others.  In addition to standings you can find out about tournaments across the valley, all the team schedules, visit each bar’s page to find their location and see their menu, view hundreds of pictures and read the rules.
 
We at the Arizona Pool Leagues hope you enjoy your time with us and look forward to shooting with you.
