Being able to see my friends and family while I get to compete against the sport’s top players is always a treat.”

“I’m super excited about the WPH E4 Torneo de Handball,” barked defending champion Lucho Cordova. “It’s always a lot of fun and a lot of good handball. I’m glad we were able to bring some of the top pros down here so the locals can enjoy some real good handball.”
