Carom League, NYC
Carom Cafe's tournament pit, conceived of and designed by the
late World Champion, Sang Lee, consists of twelve meticulously
kept heated Verhoeven 5'x10' European carom tables
Welcome to Carom League, a weekly handicapped 3-cushion billiards team competition held inside Carom Cafe Billiards'
world-famous tournament pit. Founded almost a decade ago, Carom League is the longest running and most active 3-cushion billiard league in the US.
Co-founder, owner, and professional player Michael Kang insists on the highest possible playing standards for his respected arena and maintains a trained and dedicated staff
that prepares a clean, vacuumed table and a polished new set of balls for the start of every single billiard game.
Each league season is 16 weeks long. Every Tuesday evening at 8pm teams are pitted against each other in round-robin match-ups to compete for titles and cash awards.
Detailed records are kept on every billiard stroke taken to ensure objective fairness. Online score sheets, statistics, and reports allow league players and team captains to visually chart and track their own performance and monitor that of their opponents.
The league consists of teams (6 players each) spanning a wide handicap range - and features the most dedicated and many of the strongest billiard players in the tri-state region.
Most importantly, the Carom League group is a thriving billiard community of like-minded and game-focused billiard players.
The competitive atmosphere is fierce and yet the social atmosphere is simultaneously friendly.
League members fight "tooth-and-nail" to earn every crucial point for their respective teams, but we also celebrate one another by appreciating great shots and recognizing individual performance achievements - as we exchange victories along the way.
In this manner, we share our experiences and collectively advance our abilities - keeping the spirit of 3-cushion alive while honoring the game.
Participating in the league is one of the most enjoyable ways of pushing your billiard/pool game to new heights. We invite players of all levels, from novice to pro, to join a team or just to stop by and watch some truly exciting 3-cushion matches!
