In 2002, Robert and Peggy Mallen, who had spent years playing in various billiards leagues around the Valley, brought TAP Pool to Phoenix. And for the nearly 15 years that followed, Robert and Peggy grew the league to 16 divisions (hence Division P) and nearly 1000 players. They participated Nationally, helping run the National Championship, helped craft rules and other guidelines that have made the TAP League a National success.
In the Spring of 2015, TAP of Greater Phoenix was transformed to TAP This! Billiards by Pati Martinez and John Muehling, who began playing organized league pool in the mid-90's and joined TAP in 2012. As a result of their passion for TAP and billiards, they brought the league into the digital era with the adoption of a mobile scoring app and transition to online dues payments.
This paved the way for the purchase of the league in April of 2018 by Jason Chance, current owner of Freezer's Ice House. Jason is the managing member of Force Follow, LLC - the league's owner. The league's operations are currently managed by John Muehling and Pati Martinez.
So what is TAP THIS! all about? Well, THIS is for the player. After all, it has always been for the player. But THIS is also about fun. THIS is about competition. THIS is about camaraderie. THIS is about taking your skill to a whole new level. So, TAP THIS!, and TAP into the game of billiards.
