The Individual Player National Championship Tournament, or IPNCT, is a championship tournament run by NAQT to determine the best individual quizbowl player in the country. It debuted in 2018 with only a high school division. The 2019 tournament is the first with a middle school division. There was no middle school division in the 2023 tournament, although certain middle schoolers still participated.

The tournament takes place on a single day, namely the day after the ICT. The high school division primarily uses tossups from the ICT Division II question set. The middle school division has typically used a specially written set. The tournament format is modeled after the Hillemann Singles format.
