Jun. 26, 2018
The North American Pool Tour (NAPT) is excited for their second visit to Griff’s Billiards, Las Vegas, NV as they host their second Desert Challenge, September 20-23, 2018. 
 
This Women’s Division I (pro) double elimination tournament attracts some of the most talented women players from all over the United States and Canada. The field is limited to 64 players, many of which are professionally ranked players who have received personal invitations. Other players have earned invitations through their local, Division II Regional Tour qualifier tournaments. 
 
As tradition, tournament players will again participate in a pro-am charity event on Thursday evening. This is a modified single elimination, blind draw, scotch doubles with teams made up of one Division I player and one local, amateur player. Donation of $20 is required to get partnered with a Division I player. Griff’s will choose the charity that will benefit from the funds collected. 
 
Griff's Bar & Billiards, 3650 South Decatur Blvd., Las Vegas, NV (http://www.griffslv.com) features a full bar & restaurant, non-smoking with outside smoking area, free parking, 25 HD TVs, and many specials and weekly tournaments.
