SPECIAL NOTE: This event is the 1st event under the WPA APD new guidelines for “world ranked events”. We are hopeful that 2015 will be a great year for Artistic Pool expansion as players, fans, private promoters, federations, and other interested parties now have the opportunity to acquire events for our sport with 3 optional levels of “world ranking points” (based on added funding and player field size).
If you have an interest in acquiring and developing an Artistic Pool event in your area, please let us know. We have made the process for getting an event “very easy” with the “A, B, C” event options. Attached are the approved WPA APD event guidelines once again for your review and consideration.
Thank you for helping to grow our magnetic sport art form in you local or regional area, nationally, and around the world.
The WPA APD would like to thank the IL ACS board for their financial / venue provisions and their willingness to host this official WPA World Ranked event.
