Bio

Based in Baltimore, MD, Kia Sidbury picked up a cue after discovering a pool hall in a local mall back in 2007. It triggered memories of her uncle having a 9-foot Brunswick in his basement. After just two months of play, Kia joined the APA. She was hooked and looked for every opportunity to improve. Eventually, she was introduced to the lady's regional tour. After cashing in the 2013 WPBA Regional Tour Championships, she was invited to compete in her first WPBA sanctioned event - the 2013 Ultimate 10-ball Championships. Kia continues to complete today on the WPBA, as well as, other ladies and open tours.
