About The American Pool Players Association Franchise

In 1981, Terry "Texas Terry" Bell and Larry "The Iceman" Hubbart, both professional pool players, joined forces to form the American Poolplayers Association. Before the American Poolplayers Association, there was no organized recreational pool league system in the United States. The new association filled the gap and now oversees the American Poolplayers Association 8-Ball League and the American Poolplayers Association 9-Ball League in the United States, Canada, and Japan.

Since beginning to franchise in 1982, the American Poolplayers Association has grown to over 300 franchises in the United States, as well as over one dozen located internationally.
