In the CPA, Everyone Can Play and Anyone Can Win.®
The Canadian Poolplayers Association or CPA is part of the world’s largest pool league, also known as the American Poolplayers Association (APA) in the United States. Founded in 1979 by former professional poolplayers Terry Bell and Larry Hubbart, the League is enjoyed by more than a quarter-million amateur poolplayers worldwide each and every week.
The top teams in each area advance to the World Pool Championships in Las Vegas. This event, also recognized by Guinness Records as the World’s Largest Pool Tournament, offers more than $1.5 million in prize money!
Rules for League Play in the CPA
CPA League play is governed by the same rules as APA League play. All CPA and APA League utilize the The Equalizer ® handicap scoring system. Find downloadable version of our Team Manual and Rule Booklets in multiple languages here.
