JOIN THE FUN
Joining a pool league at Amsterdam Billiards Cafe & Bar is one of the most fun things you will ever do! Our leagues are fun, co-ed, inexpensive and a great way to meet other pool players. We have leagues that cater to Beginner Players, leagues that cater to Intermediate Players, and leagues that cater to Advanced Players. Our leagues are incredibly popular: each year more than 1,500 people play in them!
All of our leagues are co-ed, they are handicapped (so if you’re playing someone better than you, you don’t have to sink as many balls as they do), and they are sanctioned by the BCA Pool League (which means you will be eligible to fly to Las Vegas to compete in the largest amateur pool tournament in the world every Spring). They are also very inexpensive: the only cost is a $40 registration fee, a $20 BCA membership fee per year, and $18 weekly green fees. Team 9 also has a $15 ACS membership fee per year.
Amsterdam Billiards Cafe & Bar was one of the first pool rooms in the country to start offering pool leagues, and after 21 years our leagues are bigger than ever! Come join the fun!
Our Team 8-ball league is fun, co-ed, and a great way to meet other pool players! It is also inexpensive ($40 registration fee plus $18 weekly “green” fees), and you can win great prizes! Each team has 4 players; most people join by themselves or with a friend (in which case we’ll match you up with 2-3 other people to form a team). Others join as a whole team. You choose the night you want to play – the Team 8-ball league meets on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings. We also offer 3 different start-times to make it as convenient as possible for you. This is a great way to improve your pool game and meet other pool players!
Amsterdam Billiards Cafe & Bar’s Team 9-ball league is the most famous pool league in the country. It consists primarily of intermediate and advanced players, but pros such as Tony Robles (“The Silent Assassin”), Mika Immonen (“The Ice Man”), Jennifer Barretta (“9-millimeter”), and George Sansouci (“Ginky”) have played in this league as well. The league meets on Thursday and Sunday evenings, with sessions starting at 6pm and 8pm. Signing up for this league is a great way to improve your pool game and possibly play against one of the top pro pool players. The league is BCA Pool League and American Cue Sports sanctioned.
If you love playing 9-Ball or 10-Ball, but prefer not to play in a team format, the Individual 9/10-ball league at Amsterdam Billiards would be perfect for you. This league meets every Sunday and is for beginner to intermediate players. This league is handicapped and co-ed. Each week you play either 9-Ball or 10-Ball, all odd weeks are 9-Ball and all even weeks are 10-Ball. Joining this league is a great way to improve your game, and meet other pool players at the same time.
Amsterdam Billiards Cafe & Bar’s Straight Pool League is the largest straight pool league in the history of the game. Regardless of whether you have a high run of 10 or 300, joining this league will be one of the most memorable experiences in your pool life. You will not only improve your game, you will also see other amazing players run balls, and you will also have a chance of winning cash prize money. We have 2 different days available, Monday evening and Saturday afternoon. This league is geared for players who have a love for the game, and really want to improve their skills. Like all of our leagues, this league is co-ed, handicapped, and sanctioned by the BCA.
