Outdoor 3WallBalll Championships Hit the Strip & 1 Wall Tries to Steal the Show
Tucson, AZ, Press, July 30, 2014- World Players of Handball-Outdoor teams up with 3wallball.com, World Outdoor Racquetball, Ektelon Outdoor and amazing sponsors (like EDTL Handball, et al) for the 5t…h edition of the Outdoor 3WallBall Championships this September 10th-14th at the Stratosphere Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, NV, and you are invited!
Throwing his name onto the team is the greatest 1 wall outdoor player of his generation, John “Rookie” Wright, who will participate in a rare pro singles and doubles appearance for the fans and administer the draws, seeds, scheduling and ref duties. “This is Vegas where the best of the best compete– all in all out,” barked Wright during the naming ceremony. Wright made himself known with WPH Rules committee members quite quickly after the morning announcement and swiftly changed a few 1 wall rules. “John got us to go back to having second serves in 1 wall and threw some weight around to get both servers in doubles to have a crack at a serve,” says WPH Director, Dave Vincent. “Next thing you know, he’ll demand I’m fired and take over my job.” All rules are posted at the event website under the “info” tab at www.r2sports.com, or email the WPH for clarification: [email protected]
Riding alongside handball will be Racquetball, Paddle Ball and a ton of entertainment embedded in a truly fantastic court-sport extravaganza that you really just cannot miss. Between 500-750 participants expected and thousands of Las Vegas BLVD onlookers and fans will be exploring our sports!

“The court complex is located on the parking lot of the Stratosphere,” says WPH Executive Director, Dave Vincent. “We timed it last year by finding the farthest hotel room and it took less than two minutes to make it to the tournament desk on foot.” In fact, the Stratosphere has reduced hotel room rates to help your budget offering an exclusive LINK right to the handball discount page or call the Stratosphere at 1-800-99-TOWER and use the code: C-3WB14.
