New National League in Colorado

The USA Pool League, a division of CueSports International (CSI), heads into its second year and is now available in Colorado. Mile high pool players will now have an opportunity to join the fun, new national league.

The USAPL is unlike any other national league in the United States. Player benefits include: no player membership fees, national “Fairplay” handicap system, paid local cash and prizes, and players have an opportunity to enter the national championships directly without having to qualify through local or regional events.

Additionally, USAPL members are offered a wide array of player discounts from some of the largest and most notable groups in the industry, including Mueller Recreational Products, McDermott Cues, Billiards Digest and Diamond Billiard Products.

The Denver area Rocky Mountain USAPL operations will be managed by the team of Samm (Diep) Vidal and pro player Marc Vidal. Also for the first time, through the Rocky Mountain USAPL, league members will have the opportunity to be dual-sanctioned. Rocky Mountain USAPL league members will be eligible to participate in both USAPL and BCA Pool League events including both national championships.

The USAPL raises the bar to a whole new level of fun competitiveness with over 70% of league matches going hill / hill. The league strongly appeals to both recreational and advanced players allowing all ranges of pool players to form teams and compete.

Setting the USAPL apart is that players on a team are not denied the opportunity to play together. Even as the abilities of players progress and handicaps fluctuate the “Fairplay” Handicap System allows for teams to stay together. The USAPL always encourages peak performance and does not penalize players and teams for playing their best pool.

“The USAPL offers the most fair and accurate handicapping system that I’ve ever played in. Marc and I are very excited to get this league going. We have big plans in store for the players, including more payouts and prizes, as well as regional events. This is exactly what Colorado pool needs!” said Diep, Rocky Mountain USAPL Manager.

John Casey, USAPL National League Liaison, added “Samm and Marc are ideal as USAPL Managers. They are passionate and knowledgeable about the sport. They have been involved in many facets of the industry as players and journalists. CSI is excited to have the Vidals work with us on the USA Pool League.”
