"We're excited to have APA league play in the area. Pool is a great way to have fun and meet new people," Brooks said.
APA West Georgia offers three formats: 8-Ball, 9-Ball and Ladies Only.
Teams compete in fall, spring and summer sessions. Each session ends with a playoff for trophies and a slot in the annual Local Team Championship (LTC).
Winners of the LTC compete in the National Team Championship, hosted annually at the Riviera Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nev.
"Our 9-ball team placed 17th out of 357 teams at the National Team Championship last month in Vegas," Brooks said.
Each APA league team consists of five-to-eight amateur players who compete weekly. The APA's copyrighted handicap system, The Equalizer®, allows inexperienced players the opportunity to compete equally against players with more advanced skills.
By participating in league play, members can qualify to compete in national championships that award nearly $1.5 million in guaranteed cash and prizes each year.
