“This is perhaps our biggest junior weekend of the year, as we will be showcasing the junior players with multiple rounds of handball in singles and doubles, a junior clinic with the WPH Outdoor pros and a special pro/junior doubles division in which four junior players will have an opportunity to team with four pros,” stated WPH Executive Director David Vincent. “Of course, the WPH Outdoor pros will also be in action, as they will be aiming to climb the rankings in advance of the 3-Wall Big Ball Super Bowl, the 2015 WPH/WOR 3WallBall Outdoor World Championships in Las Vegas in September (info here).
WPH Outdoor 3-Wall Big Ball California State Showdown Cup Stop #4 will be a critical stop for the WPH Outdoor pros near the top of the rankings, as well as those aiming for a spot in the WPH Outdoor Elite 8. #1 ranked Samzon Hernandez, #2 ranked defending WPH Outdoor Cup champion Juan Santos, #3 ranked Sal Duenas and #4 ranked Baja Blowout champion Brian Medina are closely bunched atop the rankings, and with hundreds of points available in the pro singles and doubles at Marina Park, the WPH Outdoor tour could see a major shakeup in its rankings heading into the 3WallBall Outdoor World Championships. Every point will certainly count at the end of August at Marina Park!
Perhaps the most exciting aspect of the Back 2 School Bash/WPH Outdoor 3-Wall Big Ball California State Showdown Cup Stop #4 is the desire of many of the WPH Outdoor pros to give back to the next generation of junior handball players. This summer has already featured junior handball clinics coached by Samzon Hernandez, Ricky Ruiz, Timbo Gonzalez, Sal Duenas, Alfredo Morales, Catriona Casey and Cianna Ni Churraion and Marina Park will feature even more WPH Outdoor pros coaching clinics and inspiring the next generation of players.
“I can’t wait for the event and I know a number of juniors that will be really excited to play,” stated WPH Outdoor Cup Stop #3 Tecate champion Brian Medina. “I am really looking forward to being a part of the clinics and helping with the event.”
“I’ll be posting junior entries at all of the parks,” stated 2-time defending Cup champion Juan Santos. “There are so many kids playing at the parks and I hope to recruit those kids and a lot of new junior players for the event.”
“I’ll be talking to all of the juniors and their parents to get them to participate in the event,” stated 7th ranked WPH Outdoor lefty Kevin Gonzalez. “This is going to be a really cool event!”
Juniors will be awarded back to school backpacks and school supplies for participating in the event. To donate to this incredible event, please contact WPH Youth Donor and Development Director David Fink at email@example.com.
