5.11. National Wheelchair Pool Players Association
- Wheelchair Billiards
- Overview: National Wheelchair Pool Players Association, Inc. (NWPA) is a non-profit organization dedicated to encouraging, developing and regulating wheelchair billiards. The NWPA serves wheelchair billiards as the Billiard Congress of America (BCA) serves able-bodied players. One of the goals of the NWPA is to encourage persons with disabilities who are unable to play or compete from a standing position to become involved in playing pool from a seated position, by holding clinics, tournaments and fundraisers throughout the United States . The NWPA actively seeks player members, associate members and sponsors, in order to achieve this goal. The NWPA sanctions eight to twelve regional events, culminating with annual National Championship and, in some years, an International Championship. The Entertainment and Sports Programming Network (ESPN) has aired a number of our National and International Championships.
