PM7504Tucson, AZ, WPH Press, 5/12/16- The Fred Lewis Foundation are proud to present the 2016 Armed Forces Tribute Handball Tournament to honor our fallen military heroes. The tournament will be held at the Tucson Racquet Club in Tucson, AZ on Memorial Day Weekend, May 27th-29th. Men’s singles and doubles divisions, women’s singles and junior singles brackets will be presented to provide opportunities for players of all ages and levels to participate. The deadline to enter is May 18th.

The mission of the 2016 Armed Forces Tribute Tournament is to honor our fallen veterans on Memorial Day weekend. “San Diego hosted the Semper Fi tournament for a lot of years on the marine base just outside of San Diego, but the marine base lost its courts in the last year,” stated 2016 Armed Forces Tribute Tournament Director and USHA Hall of Fame member Fred Lewis. “We want to continue to honor our fallen heroes and keep the tournament going.”

The handball capital of the world will provide plenty of excitement in honoring our military, as several of the top pro players living in the Tucson area will be competing for the 2016 Armed Forces Tribute Tournament. WPH Race 4 Eight pros Sean Lenning and Abraham Montijo are expected to compete, as well as top master’s players and several junior national champions.
