League Operator FAQ’s

How do I start a Pool League?

You must first attain a License with us to use our product and services. We have built a pool league program from the ground up so that all you have to do is manage your leagues.

How long does it take to start a league?

A new League Operator (LO) can be up and running leagues in as little as a month depending on the LO’s schedule and availability for league promotion.

How many players do I need to start with?

You can begin with as little as 15-25 players in your “start-up” division. Beginning with 3, 4, or 5 man teams is a great way to introduce the UPA to your local market and further promote your business.

 How do you score for UPA Pool Leagues?

Our unique scoring system is easy to learn and provides useful information for each player. Take a moment to watch our Instructional Scoring Videos: 8-Ball & 9-Ball.

How Do I make money?

Running UPA leagues is a profitable venture with very low start-up costs. You are compensated per player, per night, as well as have the ability to sell exclusive merchandise from our growing brand. Being a UPA LO is a great way to start your own business and make a living in the sport you love.

Do I need to own a bar or pool room?

No. We train you to establish mutually beneficial relationships with all venue owners so that you will have access to the hosting venues you need to run you pool leagues.

Can an LO play in the league?

Yes, after the first session has been completed. However, once an LO’s team places in the money, they must leave the team and may not join another team that has placed in the money in the previous 6 months.

What are my responsibilities?

As an LO you are responsible for the general operations of running a UPA league. We will provide you with our Operations Manual and our friendly staff will always be available for training and support.

Is my licensed area protected from other LOs?

Yes. Each LO is only licensed within their specified territories and may not exceed that territory without first attaining licensing rights. Each license includes the defined protected territory, updated materials, and ongoing services.

How much does a License cost?

License amounts vary from county to county depending on population. The UPA often has special offers so be sure to find out what your county is currently going for.

Do you have payment plans?

Yes, we offer affordable monthly installments of only $99. However we offer up to a 20% discount of any license purchased upfront.

Can I purchase the license from an existing LO?

Yes. If you are interested in attaining already established areas, simply contact the LO directly. Each LO determines their license value without UPA interference.

How do you help start the leagues?

Along with full training and support we provide you with our League Operators System which manages your leagues for you. Upon attaining your License we send you a “Start-Up” kit that provides you with immediate marketing materials and league forms to help you get up and going. We also offer all new LOs the right to offer $10 Gold Membership discounts to your first 250 sign-ups!

How long does it take to become an  LO?

The entire process takes no more than 1-3 business days depending on your readiness and availability.
