Welcome to the
Players Pool League

Calgary AB


Having fun playing pool is what we're all about - since 1992!


We are a 'Travelling - Handicapped - Cash - Sanctioned' league. What does all that mean?

  • Travelling - Each team selects a Home Bar where about half of their matches are played. Most are in the South and the East.
  • Handicapped - All games are scored on points with Team Handicaps giving every team a better chance of winning.
  • Cash - It's not free to play but that's why every team and every player has a great chance of winning cash prizes during both League Play and in the Playoffs.
  • Sanctioned - All players are registered with the CCS - Canadian Cue Sport Association giving everyone the opportunity to play in any tournament they want to - Vancouver Island's, BC's, Western's, Maritime's, Canadian's or even Las Vegas.

    BACK AGAIN THIS YEAR - Check out the Intermix Division with lower Fees and a shorter schedule:

  • Not the Best? No problem. You don’t have to be - all play is handicapped.
  • Can’t play all Winter? No problem. Sessions are 12 weeks - choose the one you want.
  • Don’t have a team? No problem. You’re not alone - we’ll get you on one.
  • No place to play? No problem. There's lots to choose from.

    TEAM HANDICAPS

  • The PPL has always had a history of being innovative in trying new things to make for a better league.
  • We now use the 17 point Game Scoring system.
  • Why? The bigger spread that the winner now gets gives every team a better chance.
  • No change in scoring for the game loser - one point for every ball sunk of their group. The difference is that the combined point total for the loser and the winner must always add up to 17.
  • The PPL didn't invent it. Many leagues in Canada have switched over in recent years for the same reasons.
