After many years of great service, Bonnie Saritelli has decided to hand the running of the New England Women’s 9 Ball Tour (NEWPT) – A WPBA Sanctioned Regional Tour - over to Nicole Christie. Bonnie has done an outstanding job running NEWPT over her years as Tour and Tournament Director, encouraging participation from around the New England area. It is Nicole’s hope to take the tour Bonnie has kept rolling and establish it as a strong force for expanding the number of women who reach the WPBA Pro Tour from New England each year.
The first tour stop for the New England Women’s 9 ball tour this year, is on May 24th, 2009 at Bo’s Billiards at 22 Lambert Lind Highway in Warwick, RI. Although this is not a WPBA qualifying event, it is a ranking’s point event that counts towards NEWPT’s End of Year Rankings. The top NEWPT players at the end of the 2009 season will be eligible to play in the Regional Tour Championships 2010 and from there have a chance to earn their 1 year “Q” card for the 2010 WPBA Season.
