APA News! 10-BALL Teams Now Forming In Orange County, CA

 – The American Poolplayers Association – 

Largest Amateur Pool Organization forming teams for the Fall Session

ORANGE COUNTY, CA ((September 11, 2012)) – The APA Pool League, sanctioned by the American Poolplayers Association (APA), is now forming 10-Ball teams throughout Orange county in California under the guidance of franchisee Victoria Wade.

“We are excited to bring this groundbreaking format to the area. 10-Ball has never been offered in the APA. We are the first league area to bring this complex game to our players. We hope that players, new to the APA and existing, of all abilities, novice to advanced, will join. Pool is a great way to have fun while getting to know new people.” said Wade.

Each 10-Ball team consists of three to four non-professional players who compete seasonally in weekly league play. By participating in weekly league play, members can qualify to compete in the 2013 Masters Local Team Championships and ultimately qualify for the 2013 Masters National Championship that awards a $10,000 first place guaranteed cash prize every year in Las Vegas, along with paid lodging at The Rivera Hotel & Casino and tournament entry into the event.

The Fall Session 10-Ball Division will run for 12 weeks with 2 weeks of playoffs on Tuesday Evening at 7:30PM beginning September 18, 2012. Weekly fees are $30 per team. A yearly membership will be collected from each new player in the amount of $25 prior to league participation. This is a traveling division where players can choose their home location from any bar or pool hall in our franchised area. 

The APA, based in Lake Saint Louis, MO, sanctions the world’s largest amateur pool league, known as the APA Pool League throughout the United States, as the Canadian Pool League in Canada and as the Japan Pool League in Japan. More than 270,000 members compete in weekly 8-Ball and 9-Ball league play. The APA is generally recognized as the Governing Body of Amateur Pool, having established the official rules, championships, formats and handicap systems for the sport of amateur billiards.

The APA produces three major tournaments each year—the APA National Team Championships, the APA National Singles Championships and the U.S. Amateur Championship—that, together, pay out nearly $1.5 Million in cash and prizes annually. In 2010, the APA National Team Championships were recognized by Guinness World Records as the “world’s largest pool tournament.”

The APA and its National Championships are sponsored by Pool Dawg, Aramith and Action Cues.

For more information or to get signed up with the APA, please contact the Orange County APA at 714-674-7665 or by email at orangecountyapa@aol.com. Or you can visit the Orange County APA website at www.OrangeCountyAPA.com.
