Billiard Associations

We believe that no matter what your game is, or what you call it, Pocket Billiards is a game that requires a steady hand, a sharp eye, and a wealth of knowledge. While we can do our best to bring you the tools of the game, we recognize those organizations that help to nurture the future generation of pool players.

Border Billiards is proud to support the following Pool and Billiard Associations and Resources.

American PoolPlayers Association The American Poolplayers Association (APA) was founded by professional poolplayers Terry Bell and Larry Hubbart in 1979 as the National Pool League, which became the American Poolplayers Association in 1981.
Canadian PoolPlayers Association The Canadian PoolPlayers Association (CPA) and the American Poolplayers Association sanction an international network of amateur pool leagues known as either the Canadian Pool League, the Camel Pool League or the American Pool League. Over 225,000 members compete year round.
Billiard Congress of America The Billiard Congress of America (BCA) was established in 1948, with early involvement by players like Willie Mosconi and Willie Hoppe.
