The 2023/24 Race 4 Eight season will feature eight events, with the tour traveling to the St. Louis Hinder Club for the first time in January and returning to handball hotspots in Portland, Tucson, Missoula, Juarez, and Salt Lake City.

The Race 4 Eight tour kicked off at the Plummer Bash in Idaho in October of 2011 and has hosted eighty events since the Bash in Idaho, with 136 events combining the R48Pro, WR48, and SR48.

The R48 Men’s Pro will play eight events in the eight-event, eight-month 2023/24 Race 4 Eight tour, the WR48 pros will compete in four events during the season and the SR48 pros will compete in three events.

The current R48 Men’s Pro rankings feature players from Mexico, Ireland and the U.S. in the top five, while the WR48 Fab Four feature women from Ireland and the U.S., while the SR48 Fab Four also features players from the U.S. and Ireland.

The R48 Men’s Pros will play six 4-Wall singles events, one 3-Wall singles event and for the first time, one 4-Wall doubles ranking event.
