Welcome to the
Billiards League of America!
Mad River Division, Meridian, Mississippi
An Awesome Pool League for
serious or recreational Players ...
... and the members love it! Designed with players in mind, the Billiards League of America was established to give players a fair & fun environment to shoot pool.
Making a little money or getting a new cue or case along the way is an added benefit.
Complaint Paying money session after session just to find out you get nothing back.
Having shot in many different pool environments, it was quite obvious of all the complaints players had about pool and leagues.
In an effort to give the players what they wanted, we started by listing all the complaints we had heard and experienced ourselves.
The BLA was then built around eliminating those complaints and related situations. The results are outstanding; proven by how well our players enjoy this league!
Solution ~ Every player gets paid at the end of every session.
Complaint Waiting 2 or 3 hours just to see if you will be shooting tonight.
Solution ~ Each player scheduled to shoot that night will play throughout the match with short breaks in between.
Complaint Staying out too late - sometimes 'til midnight or later.
Solution ~ Almost all of our matches are completely done in approx. 2 hours. Headed home by 9:30 or so.
Complaint Never shot in a playoff game because our team is not a strong team.
Solution ~ Every team goes to the playoffs every session no matter what your skill level or final standings.
Complaint Yearly fees keep going up and we never get anything back for the increased amounts.
Solution ~ Our yearly fees are still as low as any league we are aware of.
Solution ~ Free yearly tournament. BLA Office pays your entry fee and any money you win is yours to keep.
Solution ~ Every session, at least 80% of all league fees taken in gets paid back to the players.
Complaint Player suggestions are not taken seriously or ignored completely.
Solution ~ Any member in good standing can make suggestions that will be brought up for a member vote. If voted in by the members, the suggestion goes in to effect.
Complaint Sportsmanship issues go on and on without being addressed.
Solution ~ Sportsmanship violations get one warning. Second offence results in penalties.
Complaint Too much sandbagging.
Solution ~ Players get paid for balls made. If you want to sandbag, go ahead and your opponent will get the money instead of you.
Solution ~ Handicaps affect the team; not the player. Sandbagging will only reduce the amount of money you win with no later reward.
Solution ~ The first place team gets paid cash for winning the session (after the first divisional session).

Built by removing the complaints from other leagues.
