Every member has the right to be treated in a sportsmanship like manner.

Good sportsmanship is essential in pool as in any sport. Repeated complaints against you can lead to a loss of points for your team and/or cancellation of your membership in the APA. In addition, if you disrupt the League by consistently arguing and disagreeing with League rules, rulings and policies you may face loss of membership. Play within the spirit of the rules and keep in mind that common sense must prevail.
