LAKE SAINT LOUIS, MO (December 17, 2010) — The Black Widow, Jeanette Lee, may be coming to an area near you in 2011, courtesy of the American Poolplayers Association (APA).  The APA Black Widow Tour will open with two shows on January 12 & 13 in Chicago, Ill.  Other tour stops include:
Miami – January 19
New York City – February 21
Dallas - May
Memphis - May
Seattle - September
Toronto – September
Specific dates for each city will be released at a later date.
The final three cities will be determined directly by APA members.  The three APA League areas that grow the most members between Spring and Fall will win a visit from the Black Widow.  The final three tour stops are tentatively scheduled for late fall 2011.
Each exhibition will feature Jeanette talking about how she overcame scoliosis and got involved in pool, challenge matches against spectators and a photo and autograph session.  Most of the exhibitions will be free of charge.
The APA, based in Lake Saint Louis, Mo., sanctions the world's largest amateur pool league, known as the APA Pool League throughout the United States, and as the Canadian Pool League in Canada.  Nearly 270,000 members compete in weekly 8-Ball and 9?Ball league play.  The APA is generally recognized as the Governing Body of Amateur Pool, having established the official rules, championships, formats and handicap systems for the sport of amateur billiards.
The APA produces three major tournaments each year—the APA National Team Championships, the APA National Singles Championships and the U.S. Amateur Championship—that, together, pay out nearly $1.5 Million in cash and prizes annually!
The APA and its championships are sponsored by Aramith, Action Cues and Pool Dawg.
