  • Pool
  • Overview: The National Wheelchair Poolplayers Association, Inc. (NWPA) is a non-profit organization dedicated to encouraging, developing and regulating wheelchair billiards. The NWPA serves wheelchair billiards as the Billiard Congress of America (BCA) serves able-bodied players. Sports and recreation are the best ways to encourage physically challenged men, women and children to live full and productive lives.  Pool has become a popular sport around the world, but especially for hundreds of wheelchair players.   Pool is the perfect sport for most wheelchair users, because it is not physically demanding and age is not a factor. One of the goals of the NWPA is to encourage persons with disabilities who are unable to play or compete from a standing position to become involved in playing pool from a seated position, by holding clinics, tournaments and fundraisers throughout the United States . The NWPA actively seeks player members, associate members and sponsors, in order to achieve this goal.
