2017 WPH Outdoor Stop #5: June 3-4, 2017

Los Angeles, CA, WPH Press, 4/30/17- WPH Outdoor and JR WPH are pleased to announce the 2017 WPH Outdoor 6 Stop #5 Fullerton Hotshots on Saturday and Sunday, June 3-4. Fullerton Hotshots will be held at Craig Park, 3300 N. State Park Blvd, Fullerton, CA 92835.

The Fullerton Hotshots will be an official 2017 WPH Outdoor 6 ranking event, with all points earned in Men’s “A” singles and “A” doubles counting towards the WPH Outdoor 6 “Race to Vegas” and the season finale at the 2017 WPH 3WallBall Outdoor World Championships at the Stratosphere September 21-14, 2017. The Fullerton Hotshots will also offer “B” singles and “B” doubles.

Craig Park features short wall 3-Wall courts, similar to but slightly smaller than the courts players will face at the WPH Outdoor 3WallBall Vegas Lte event three weeks prior to the Fullerton Hotshots. “Craig Park’s courts favor highly technical or highly powerful players,” stated WPH Outdoor ironman and Elite 8 pro Sal Duenas. “The courts are so small that you can be outsmarted with strategic shots, but also overwhelmed by power pass shots and kills.”

Expect to see top WPH Outdoor stars Samzon Hernandez, Alfredo Morales, Ricky Ruiz, Sal Duenas, Chava Cordova, and many more to teeing it up at Craig Park.

While the WPH Outdoor pros will be competing for prizes and ranking points at Craig Park, the focus will be on the juniors, as JR WPH will offer 9-and-under, 12-and-under, 15-and-under, and 18-and-under junior singles brackets, with all juniors guaranteed at least two matches and a JR WPH Mega Clinic to be led by WPH Outdoor stars for all juniors on site.

“WPH Outdoor is really a tremendous avenue for JR WPH to inspire the next generation of players,” stated WPH Executive Director David Vincent. “It seems like every WPH Outdoor stop in Southern California has close to 100 youngsters on site, and we are always thrilled to host junior tournaments and clinics for all of the youngsters at the event. We expect a large turnout of juniors at Craig Park and, as always, we are very excited to be able to showcase the next generation of players alongside the WPH Outdoor superstars.”

“I’m always looking forward to the junior events and seeing the growing and new talent at every event,” added WPH Coach Sal Duenas.
