Reasons to Play
Free to Join
There is currently no annual membership. You read right...membership is FREE!
Fairplay Handicap System
The USAPL is the only national league to have exclusive use of the "Fairplay" handicap system. It has been in use in Minnesota leagues for over 20 years and has a documented rate of 70% of matches ending in a hill-hill situation. It truly does level the playing field.
Online League Management Software
This is a “real-time” state of the art pool league management system that all USAPL members can access 24/7. All USAPL players can view team standings, MVP point standings, schedules, rosters, every match score sheet from every match ever played, player histories and stats,….plus much more. LeagueSys is interfaced with the Fairplay handicap system and player's ratings will be updated and changed as soon as that week's score sheets are entered.
Teams may have 3, 4, or 5 player teams on the local level but the USAPL National Championships require 5-player teams for 8-Ball and 4-player teams for 9-Ball. You may have 10 players on a 5 player team roster, 8 on a 4, and 6 on a 3.
