WPH Race4Eight Results: Season I thru V (2011-Now)

Posted on Apr 25 2017 - 8:40am by david

The WPH along with Simple Green and sponsors created the first organized pro tour since 2004, when the highly successful Race4Eight Pro Handball Tour kicked off in 2011.  [The WPH ran the pro tour from 2006-2011 w/out title sponsorship]. The Race4Eight is a series of  stops where players gather points …after first wiping the rankings clean at the beginning of the year. The top eight point earners, after the last stop, are invited to the WPH Super Bowl, The Player’s Championship. Each stop has brought us qualifiers, elite players, junior/pro clinics, mounds of fans and gigantic numbers of webcast viewers. The WPH is in its sixth season of the R48Pro; now including seniors and women’s elite, with all of the action being broadcast LIVE on ESPN & the WatchESPN App.
