APA Championships to Feature DIAMOND Pool Tables
APA and DIAMOND Billiard Products are teaming up once again to bring Poolplayer Nation what they’ve been longing for.
Beginning in 2023, APA’s four major championships – the Poolplayer Championships, the Junior Championships, the U.S. Amateur Championship and the World Pool Championships will feature DIAMOND tables. The APA Championships held in Las Vegas featured DIAMOND tables for a short stint in the early 2000s.
The Junior Championships, the Poolplayer Championships and the World Pool Championships will feature the DIAMOND “League Cut” tables, and the U.S. Amateur Championship will feature the DIAMOND 9-foot Pro-Am tables.
“This partnership has been a long time coming, and we couldn’t be more excited to reunite with our friends at DIAMOND. The quality of their tables is second to none,” said APA President Greg Fletcher.
DIAMOND is now the “Official Pool Table of the APA and APA Championships” and will supply more than 300 of their tables for events like the APA World Pool Championships, certified by Guinness Records as the World’s Largest Pool Tournament.
“We’re excited to work with the largest pool league organization in the world. APA is the gold-standard for leagues and tournaments, and we believe the players are going to love competing on our tables,” said Chad Scharlow, Vice President of DIAMOND.
The APA, based in Lake Saint Louis, Mo., sanctions the world’s largest amateur pool league, known as the APA Pool League throughout the United States, and as the Canadian Pool League in Canada. 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 four major tournaments—the APA World Pool Championships, the APA Poolplayer Championships, the APA Junior Championships and the U.S. Amateur Championship—that, together, pay out nearly $2 Million in cash and prizes annually!
DIAMOND Billiard Products Inc., based in Jeffersonville, Indiana, is the premiere pool table manufacturer. World-renowned for quality and playability, DIAMOND prides itself on being a US manufacturer. The DIAMOND has become the table of choice for serious players throughout the world.
The APA and its championships are sponsored by Aramith, Action Cues, DIAMOND Billiard Products Inc., and PoolDawg.com.
