In the APA, Everyone Can Play & Anyone Can Win!

Bernie & Nouhad Pavlock -Ohio APA League Operators- are inviting players from our local area to play in APA Singles, Scotch Doubles, 5-Man Tournaments, etc... that they host at Avon Oaks in Girard,Ohio on a regular basis. Click on Ohio APA Tournaments on the left menu to view any current tournaments.
The winter is just around the corner and it is possible that we will have times where the forecast will call for bad weather on nights of play that we have pool. Our Weather Cancelations page (link in the box to your upper left) will explain how such cancelations are handled. As soon as I am sure if pool will be canceled or not I post it on that page, and there are instructions as to what you must do if pool is or is not canceled.
Join the APA!
While some membership cards require you to be able to jump the cue ball, bank it off three rails and sink the 8-Ball blindfolded, getting an APA Membership Card is much easier.
Having fun, meeting new people and playing pool is what the APA is all about.. You don't have to be a pool shark, because in the APA -- everyone can play and anyone can win. The APA wants beginners and novices, because it is the AMATEUR Poolplayers Association. No other organization in pool gives ordinary players a chance to win a share of nearly $1.5 MILLION guaranteed cash and prizes paid out through its national tournaments.
How does the APA do it? It uses The Equalizer® handicap system to determine the amount of games a player has to win in order to capture the match. It allows a novice to win less games than a more-skilled opponent to win a match.
8-Ball Doubles, 8-Ball Open, 9-Ball Open
