WELCOME TO THE OFFICIAL WEBSITE OF THE BROOKLYN QUEENS APA
NEW YORK CITY'S LARGEST POOL LEAGUE
I moved to NYC in 1992 and became an APA League Operator 10 years later. For the past 18 years I've worked to create an open and inculsive community around the sport of pool. The Brooklyn Queens APA believes in equality. We stand for diversity. Together with our Host Locations and APA members, we have created a community of people that reflects this great city we call home. It's the only place I have ever wanted to live. But what happened to George Floyd and the members of the Black community before him has also happened here, and elsewhere and we can never allow it to happen again. I look forward to a future where we all do our part to eliminate racism in all it's forms. I pledge to listen, and do my part because Black Lives Matter.
APA Statement :
Aug 28, 2020
Day 166 day
Thank you to all awho have helped with our letter writing campain. Suffolk County, Nassau County, Brooklyn, Queens and Manhattan and all of the players in upstate NY! We will keep you informed once we hear back from our Governor. Yesterday the APA annouced the 2020 WPC that had previously been moved to Nov/Dec has now been moved to August 2021. This was unavoidable since Vegas is only at 50% capacity and 40% of our leagues across the US are still not able to play.
What does that mean for our Brooklyn Queens league? All of the details have yet to be worked out. Once we resume play, we are looking to finish the 11 weeks of the Spring 2020 Session and qualify teams to our WQ. All of the previous teams that already qualified in Summer '19 and Fall' 19 will remain qualified (as long as they continue to play when we reopen). Then we will run a Spring 2021 session (perhaps a Fall 2020 based on when we reopen) and run WQ for 2021 as we would normally do in June of 2021, however most likely and hopefully we have have an additional team slot to send to Vegas. Again, all of this is conjecture at this point and subject to change. This will all be nailed down once we know for sure when we are able to resume play.
