New England USA Pool League Shows Unprecedented Growth in 1st Year


CueSports International, Henderson, Nevada (November 8, 2012)  -  In September, the New England USA Pool League (NE USAPL), managed by long time and respected pool promoter Roy Pastor, celebrated the league's first year anniversary. Headquartered in Ayer, Massachusetts, the new league has shown rapid growth, leaping to 90 teams in 12 short months.

The NE USAPL features several division options for players to enjoy, including: Women's 8-Ball, Masters 10-Ball, 8-Ball/10-Ball Double Play, 8-Ball/9-Ball Double Play and the only junior division in New England. The divisions are located in four cities in Massachusetts and two in Connecticut.

While Pastor refuses to take all the credit, the league's success is, without a doubt, due to his focused dedication and leadership. When asked about the NE USAPL success in year one he said, "I have been very fortunate to get a lot of help from a great group of players, Division Reps, host locations and friends whose enthusiasm and hard work has ignited a firestorm of growth and momentum."

The NE USAPL took their first trip to the USAPL National Championships in Las Vegas where they placed nationally in both individual and team competitions. Pastor recalls, "By the time the BCAPL / USAPL nationals rolled around in May 2012, most of our league players had only been members for one session, and yet we (the NE USAPL) were still able to take a larger percentage of our players to Vegas than the local APA franchise whose players had competed for three sessions."

In the NE USAPL recent summer session playoffs, close to 100 trophies were given out to winning teams. Teams from both summer sessions will be invited to compete in "Go to Vegas" tournaments for a chance to win a trip to Las Vegas in July 2013 for the 3rd USAPL National Championships held at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino.

Capping off a tremendous first year, Pastor announced a new NE USAPL 14.1 Continuous division has been recently added. It’s the first ever handicapped USAPL Straight Pool Division in the United States. Arguably, 14.1 Continuous is considered the best game for players to help improve their overall skills and game.
