Melbourne Metropolitan Pool League

Melbourne Metropolitan Pool League Inc. (MMPL) is a non-profit organisation established to promote and co-ordinate the sport of 8-Ball in the inner district of Melbourne. The MMPL conducts two seasons of competition annually, the more highly-regarded one in winter (April to September – usually about 18 rounds) and the less-serious one in summer (November to March – usually about 9 rounds), in which up to 20 separate venues participate in the Melbourne CBD and surrounding areas.
