Chicagoland TAP is a National Pool League providing pool players of all skill levels with the opportunity to play 8-Ball, 9-Ball and 10-Ball weekly in Teams, Singles and Scotch Doubles Leagues. We are currently operating in Chicago along with Cook County, East Kane County, Kankakee County, Kendall County, West DuPage County (including the cities of Villa Park and Lombard) and Will County in Northeast Illinois as well as Lake County in Northwest Indiana.

Some of the cities and surrounding areas under our operation in the Northwest Indiana area are Calumet City, East Chicago, Dyer, Highland, Griffith, Hammond, Gary, Crown Point, Schererville, Merrillville, St. John and Lowell.

TAP is a pool league that emphasizes playing the game the way it was intended to be played while allowing for the skill difference between new players and more experienced players. Good players have to win a higher number of games to win a match, while weaker players can win with less games won. Regardless, both players are challenged to shoot as well as they can to win.

TAP has put together what we feel to be fair rules to guide you towards quality entertainment our league wishes to represent. We feel winning by skill and not a rule along with good sportsmanship sums up our general guidelines of league play.

Track your team statistics as well as your individual statistics through POOL-NETPOOL-NET remains in the front of live statistical data providers.

Have fun with friends and family, win trophies, cash and the opportunity to play pool in Local, Regional and National Pool Tournaments.
