Salt Lake City Utah – Aces/WPH Player’s Championship – Deadline Nears

Posted on Mar 19 2015 - 7:13am by DV


We are getting closer to tournament time and we fear this one will sell out! This year’s event will be April 17th-19th at the Sports Mall, 5445 S 900 E, Salt Lake City, UT, 84117, and you are invited!  WPH has opened up the pro brackets to allow anyone to enter and the Salt Lake Aces have created money Pro/Am Doubles and Open Singles (both with big cash!).

In addition to the ACES and WPH Pro final there will also be Senior (40+ Money Singles), Women’s (Money Singles) and Pro Qualifiers (to get into the man draw) where ANYONE CAN ENTER!  The WPH changed their Race4Eight Format to allow locals and players from around the country to enter and play alongside the pros and we encourage it!  Anyone can enter the Senior 40+, the Women’s Pro and the Men’s Qualifiers; Eight final qualifiers will be placed alongside:  Paul Brady, Luis Moreno, Sean Lenning, Emmett Peixoto, Dave Fink, Armando Ortiz, Daniel Cordova, and Naty Alvarado to make a super Rd of 16.  Qualifiers start Friday morning at 9am.

Last year’s event presented some of the most exciting handball many of us have ever seen. Don’t miss this one!

Not only the handball, but the hospitality that ACES provide is second to none. Your entry fee includes play, souvenir shirt, food and drink during the tourney (adult beverages non-stop) AND the awesome Aces party on Saturday night at the Ace complex (where we play 3 wall until the wee hours at the Ace 3 Wall Courts). The event has been at full capacity the past several years, so get signed up quickly to ensure you get in.
