UPA League of Champions Expands Nationwide

PHOENIX, AZ (September 2, 2009) - The United States Professional Poolplayers Association's (UPA) League of Champions has hit the ground running with sponsorships not only by top names in the industry such as Instroke Cases and Poison Cues, but local organizations namely AZ Diamondbacks and the Boys & Girls Club of Metropolitan Phoenix.  The fastest growing amateur league in the nation continues to set its sights on new territories giving entrepreneurially inclined individuals the opportunity to start their own League of Champions.
After the inaugural launching of the league system in Arizona and Wyoming, the most recent leagues to jump off the ground include: Tampa, Florida; Memphis, Tennessee; Detroit, Michigan; Minnesota's Tri-Cities; Las Vegas, Nevada; and Western Pennsylvania.  The league owners in these areas have secured the licensing rights to ensure their leagues will remain protected in their respective territories.  If you're interested in an opportunity to take charge of your regional area, contact us immediately for details.

"It has been amazing to watch the leagues grow to the extent that they have in such a short amount of time.  Amateur pool has consistently lacked a tool to give players the ability and the means to improve their individual game while participating in a social environment.  The UPA league system has truly provided players the vision to see that if they too work hard enough, they can realize their dreams of improving their skills and possibly even to compete in professional pool.  Our league operators share in this vision and I believe that is why we continue to be the fastest growing league in the country."  Darrin Brown, UPA Executive Director

Last but not least, the UPA would like to congratulate Salina Holland for being our first monthly league drawing winner.  Salina took home a brand new Instroke Cowboy case provided by Frank's Center.  Not only is Salina a new member of the League of Champions but she is a tough competitor.  We wish her all good rolls in the future!
