Nearly 250,000 members compete in weekly 8-Ball and 9-Ball league play. The APA is generally recognized as the Governing Body of Amateur Pool, having established the official rules, championships, formats and handicap systems for the sport of amateur billiards.

The APA produces three major tournaments each year — the APA World Pool Championships, the APA Poolplayer Championships and the U.S. Amateur Championship — that, together, pay out nearly $1.5 million in cash and prizes annually.
