2009 Regional Tour Championships Begins
Only the top six eligible ladies from each of the semi-professional billiard tours are invited to fill the prestigious 64-player Regional Tour Championships. This year’s annual event is hosted by the upscale Parlor Billiards & Spirits in Bellevue, WA. The stunning pool room is equipped with 17 Brunswick Goldcrown IV’s and two private rooms with beautiful Brunswick Cosmopolitans and Manhattans.
The Parlor has graciously added $6,000 to this event and the winner of the coveted title earns paid entries into the three Classic 2009 WPBA events along with expenses.
Hoping to reclaim her title is last year’s champ, Susan Mello of the Arizona Women’s Tour. Traveling from the other side of the country are the tour leaders from the Florida Spirit tour, Michell Monk and Stephanie Mitchell. From the Northeast J Pechauer New England tour is Morgan Steinman and Emily Duddy.
Live streaming will be available on WPBA.com, ParlorBilliards.com, and AZBilliards.com. WPBA Board members Kristi Carter and Mike Howerton will provide commentating and assistance of tournament coverage. Tournament directors Chris Rogers and “Ford” will be strictly enforcing the shot clock due to time constraints on Saturday night. Play begins at 9 a.m. Payouts will be announced at that time.
