A half-dozen bids from streaming companies across the country made the NAPT board’s decision very difficult. But, in the end, the Michigan-based Railbirds Productions offered the highest quality at the most competitive price. Railbirds is composed of married couple Kevin and Shari Ross; the latter is an active regional tour player and long-time supporter of billiards. Kevin is known for his billiards photography. The Railbirds’ reputation for high-quality, professional streaming and commentary is yet another of the exciting elements of NAPT’s debut event.

There are only a few spots left to fill in the NAPT Inaugural 10-Ball Invitational; interested players should contact the regional tour in their area. A list of NAPT Division II tours can be found at www.PlayNAPT.com.
This event will be held June 3-5, 2016, and live stream coverage will begin at 10am Friday. The event is hosted by Breakers Sky Lounge (2445 Centreville Rd, Herndon, VA 20171); Breakers is adding $5,000 to the prize fund. The format is double elimination, limited to 64 players, and with a full field will have a $21,000 purse.
