Pool league played in garages.

How about a pool league that uses pool tables located in personal garages instead of pool halls/bars? I used to be very involved in tournament pool. Unfortunately I had to give it up when our first child was born. The main reason was i couldn't bring my family, becuase most tournaments were held in bars/pool halls, which really isn't a family situation. So why not have a pool league where you hold tournaments at different player's garages..rotating to a different garage each time? Minimum standards can be set for table size (since they vary so much) , and of course the clearances required around the table. Standard rules would apply. That way people with families could enjoy their hobby, yet still take them along....

       Not sure a bush pool league counts as a new half-baked idea. It just seems like something you could knock up yourself with a dozen friends on a rainy weekend.

       Well yes, that is sort of the idea. I should have noted that it would be for opposing teams instead of indivdual players. Keeps it more interesting, and adds a bit of strategy to the game. I'm tired of having to beat the same people over and over again. I need some fresh meat!!!:]

       I like it.
I just wish I could afford a table...or a garage.
  

       It wouldn't be a real bush league if everyone had a "standard table" and "acceptable clearence."   

       Wimp.   

       Haven't you ever heard Bill Cosby's "How to Win at Basketball"?

       Pretty ghey idea... shooting pool in a garage takes too many elements out of the game.
