APA MiniMania Tournaments

Our long-term commitment to our members is to bring fun and excitement to amateur pool. We make every effort to provide our members with as many opportunities as possible to compete at our Championships in Las Vegas. One way we do this is by offering our MiniMania Tournaments held during our two largest events.

MiniMania events are held 20 hours per day during the Poolplayer Championships and the World Pool Championships. MiniMania Tournaments are open to all current APA members with at least 20 scores in one format within the last two years in either 8 Ball or 9-Ball (10 scores in 8-Ball & 10 scores in 9-Ball will not be considered 20 scores) and guarantees 100% payback of each tournament’s entry fees. Entry fees range from $10 to $50 and must be paid upon registration. Entrants must bring a picture id and their current APA membership card. See below for more comprehensive rules to participate in these events.
