Yes, PoolDawg has signed on to be an official sponsor for the APA Singles and Team Championships! Here’s the official press release:
LAKE SAINT LOUIS, MO (April 16, 2009) — PoolDawg has reached a deal with the American Poolplayers Association (APA) to become an official sponsor of all APA National Championships. PoolDawg will be the official table spot sponsor of both the APA National Singles and Team Championships held in Las Vegas annually at the Riviera Hotel & Casino.
As part of the agreement, all participants in the national championships will receive a commemorative memento courtesy of PoolDawg.
“We’ve enjoyed a strong relationship with PoolDawg for years. They’ve been a major advertiser in our national membership magazine and an exhibitor at our National Team Championships. This agreement helps to further our relationship with them,” said APA President Reneé Lyle.
“When it comes to amateur pool leagues, there is no bigger name than the APA. We are extremely excited to come on board as a sponsor of the APA Championships.” said Mike Feiman, Director of Marketing for PoolDawg. “As the largest amateur pool league, the APA provides us with a unique opportunity to reach hundreds of thousands of poolplayers. We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to further expand our longstanding relationship with the APA and its members.”
What does this mean? It means that everyone playing in the championships is going to get a special freebie in their registration packets. It also means that the playing tables are going to look a little different this year. As we’re officially the “table spot sponsor”, that means we’ll be designing the pool table spot that will appear on every table. Curious as to what its going to look like? Check it out:
