October 23, 2013; The North American Poolshooters Association (NAPA) and Delta-13 began their tour with the first stop in Indianapolis last month and the second stop in Florida this month. The NAPA Delta-13 8-ball Tour is a collaborative effort from both the North American Poolshooters Association and Delta-13 to promote competitive billiard action to enthusiasts of all ages and all skill levels across North America. The new tour takes place in 12 locations across the United States and Canada and each stop is open to all NAPA players of any skill level class.
