The WPH’s RFC is the longest-running WPH event, having started in 2009 and proudly continuing through 2020 and beyond. The WPH RFC boasts one of the greatest lists of champions in the sport, as handball superstars David Chapman, Luis Moreno, Charly Shanks, David Fink, Tracy Davis, Catriona Casey, and Stephen Cooney have won WPH RFC titles.
“The RFC is the highlight of the year in Pittsburgh handball,” stated Amerifit manager and JR WPH Pittsburgh handball coach Mike Semplice. “We are so fortunate to have the best players in the world coming through Pittsburgh for the twelfth consecutive year at the WPH’s RFC.”
“We are thrilled to be hosting the R48 Men’s pros and SR48 stars on Leap Year weekend in 2020,” boasted WPH RFC tournament director David Fink. “Pittsburgh has a number of excellent 40+ stars and I’m really looking forward to watching their maiden SR48 starts against the best players in SR handball, and of course, welcoming top R48 stars to the Steel City. It’s going to be a great celebration of top handball next February!”
