Since the early 90's, this organization was formed and maintained by pool enthusiasts Julie Hunter, Linda Silva, Christina Piona and sisters Emilyn and Eleanor Callado. The support has shifted over time, but it takes love, dedication and team work to keep this organization running successfully. Although it has been challenging at times, this women's tour has transformed into the largest women's pool organization in the state of California.
