We are sad to announce that a good friend of the APA, Richard (Dick) Cox suddenly passed away this past Sunday. Funeral arrangements can be found by going to the Web Site for Brinsfield - Echols Funeral Home in Charlotte Hall, Maryland. Dick was the Host and creator of the Southern Maryland Billiards Championship Tournament, held each year in Southern Maryland. The APA was a sponsor of this popular event. He was a great champion for the sport and will be missed by many.

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.
