Welcome to the
Players Pool League

Calgary AB


Having fun playing pool with friends and family is what we're all about - since 1992!

We are known as a VEGAS League but we also proudly support the CCS CANADIAN Tournies - BC's, Westerns, Maritimes and Canadians.

That means that everyone is registered with CCS/ACS , everyone can win paid Team Entries to the Championships and everyone can win Cash Trip Allowances.

That's only done so that you have that opportunity. While playing in any of those Championships is huge fun, go or take the dough, it's totally up to you.

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.
  • New for this year - We are switching from 10 point Game Scoring to 17 point Game Scoring.
  • Why? The bigger spread that the winner now gets makes for truer player averages and truer team handicaps. That 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.
  • The PPL used it in the last Spring Session as a trial and although it felt weird, it does work.
