April "The Grinder" Larson


April Larson started playing pool seriously when she was about 9 years old.  At just 10 while playing league, her director June Maiers recommended she compete in the BEF Junior National Championships.  After she attended her first ever BEF National Championships; she placed 2nd. Unbeknownst to her, she would next go on to become the repeat Junior Champion for the next five years, attend the World Junior Championships twice and participate in the Super Billiards Expo in the Open Women’s Professional Division.

April’s family is a huge part of her life and declared, “without them, I would be nowhere”. She might not have picked up a pool cue if it weren’t for their encouragement. April started playing on her family’s pool team. April has 100% support from her family, who travel across the country with her. “I don’t know many other pool players who can say their entire extended family travels with them to pool tournaments. I wouldn’t change it for the world, and I thank them and love them to the moon and back”.
