NAPA offers pool shooters a better opportunity to qualify for and play in its national tournament each year than any other North American pool league.
NAPA's innaugural 2011 national tournament held in Hot Springs, Arkansas paid out over $40,000 to qualified player participants. The 2012 NAPA Nationals were played in Nashville, TN from June 24th through July 1st and awarded more than $60,000 in cash and prizes to individual qualifiers from throughout the United States and Canada. The 2013 NAPA Nationals were held at Harrah's Casino in Tunica, MS with individual and team championships taking place between June 21st and June 28th. The 2014 NAPA Nationals were held at the Hilton Hotel in downtown Atlanta, GA with individual championships taking place between June 13th and June 21st. The Soaring Eagle Casino in Mt. Pleasant, MI hosted the 2015 NAPA Nationals.
The most recent tournament was held at the Valley Forge Casino/Resort in King of Prussia, PA from June 24 - July 2, 2016 where NAPA offered 24/7 open play on 100 tables while paying out over $55,000 to a pool of just under 600 individuals.
Unlike most leagues, the NAPA Nationals consists of several championship tournaments all based on individual play, not team play. This approach allows players who have qualified for Nationals the chance to compete regardless of whether or not thier entire team is able to make the trip. Individual play also solves the issue of a team's overall handicap increasing throughout a session to the point where they cannot field a competitive roster by the time the national tournament comes around each summer (which, in turn, helps to eliminate sandbagging during regular league play).
Adding to the uniqueness of this tournament, championships are held for several skill divisions in each format of 8-ball, 9-ball, 10-ball, lagger's choice, and scotch doubles. There is also a juniors championship which is open to Nationals qualifiers and non-qualifying NAPA league members 18 years and younger.
NAPA makes it easier for players to qualify for its national tournament than any other league. There are several ways that a player can qualify:
So there you have it, you can be the worst player on the best team or the best player on the worst team and still make it to Nationals. That's pretty fair!
