IMG_6887 (2)Relive the 2016 Player’s Championship from Portland, Oregon, as seen on ESPN3. From the thrilling Sean Lenning~Armando Ortiz men’s semifinal or the Paul Brady loss to Killian Carroll moments afterward. Gavin Buggy’s run to the SR48Pro title versus the reigning Player’s Champion, Marcos Chavez; while, Catriona Casey made it three in a row against her biggest foe, Aisling Reilly. We put together spliced clips directly from the ESPN3 LIVE feed from the Multnomah Athletic Club in Portland, Oregon, May 5th-8th, 2016. In some cases we used never seen before camera angles and videos for better transitions, but in all cases, we sped up over eight hours of amazing handball and condensed down to 21 minutes!

You can now watch all the matches from Portland, Oregon, and from the 2015/16 Race4Eight Season and beyond!  “We created over 20 new albums from events we have filmed dating back almost ten years,” says WPH front man, Dave Vincent.  “We average about 15 recorded matches per tournament we attend each year and have some remarkable footage.  Much of which is archived on our members-only on demand page.”  WPH has more than 20 new albums available; well over 150 albums over the ten year span packed full of high definition, standard broadcast quality, ESPN3 aired events; instructional videos, promos, rare interviews and so much more!  Vincent adds, “As a new member of the WPH you will certainly get bang for your buck and our group from Jeff Kastner, Kris Gurrad, Linda & Ben Manning and Kara Mack, to Che Lowenstein, Samantha Kotcher, Matt Taitano and all those on our board of directors … Fred Banfield, Jeff Healam, Steve Soto and Doug Clark, to our President Charles Charvoz and Dave Fink, plus those that have helped make filming and archiving special, we hope you are entertained watching them as much as we were creating them.”
