About the NAPT: (from their website)

The North American Pool Tour (NAPT) was formed in early 2016 to provide an additional opportunity for regional tour amateurs and professional women players to participate in highly competitive billiard events across North America.
Currently, the NAPT is comprised of some of the most respected and longest running regional tours across North America, that reach an estimated 600 female players in both US and Canada.
Initially, the NAPT’s focus will be on women’s events, but will soon expand the program to include men and junior events.
The NAPT is committed to providing an open forum for players of all levels to participate and compete in tournaments at both the regional and national levels, while striving to expand the sport of billiards within North America.
