WPBA seeks partners/investors

The Women's Professional Billiard Association is seeking Letters of Interest from prospective investors and/or partners who are interested in playing a key role in the future of the WPBA.

The WPBA was the first association organized by women and for women pool players, providing a venue for women to compete professionally.  The WPBA has evolved over time.  The level of play has reached new heights, and in the past 10 years players from around the world have sought and earned coveted spots on the WPBA tour.  

Perhaps most important in the evolution of the WPBA is the TV coverage on ESPN of women's 9-Ball. While the viewership is modest, the WPBA has retained a loyal audience over the years, despite the competing coverage of major golf, football and other sporting events.

For the past few years, the WPBA has been run by a volunteer board of directors, with minimal paid staff assistance and resources.  To maintain the integrity of the tour, the WPBA feels that it would be in the best interest of the organization to find partners and/or investors who have an interest in promoting women's billiards, and the resources to provide a high level of professional competition in a professional environment.  

We seek Letters of Interest from qualified persons or entities only.  At a minimum, respondents should provide the information requested on the attached form, along with a cover letter.  Respondents may include any other information that would help the Board understand the respondent's experience and resources.  Only those respondents with substantial qualifications will be provided a proposal package and invited to meet with the WPBA Board of Directors.

Due date.  Please e-mail responses in PDF format to:  info1@wpba.com.  Letters are due no later than 5:00 p.m. EST, Friday, Jan. 14, 2011.
