The Bob Harris Open- Paying tribute to local living legend, Bob Harris, this 4 Wall indoor event has transformed itself with some new and exciting additions.  First off, we’d be missing the point if we didn’t mention that this mega x-over gig is being held in Las Vegas, Nevada, February 10th-12th.  Secondly, the Stratosphere Hotel Tower Casino has reduced rooms for Handball Players and fans that want to participate.  1-800-99-TOWER is the line to call and use code C-RF17.  Not only is the Strat the closest major property to the facility, but the tower is so tall [1,150 ft.] that it practically casts its shadow across the Las Vegas Athletic Club entrance!  With that said the Stratosphere supports handball, so let us support them back, mmmk?

Some Exciting Add-Ons to Take Note:

  • Former WPH Outdoor Director, Ashley Moler, returns as Co-Tournament Director alongside current Outdoor Director [her successor], Tom Flores; meanwhile, Mike Coulter from, LLC, is splitting tournament management duties with WPH zookeeper, Dave Vincent. But what about Joe Harris, Bruce Handelman and all the locals that have ran this event in the past? No worries… they will be put to work as well.  This gig might have more tournament desk and admins than players before we are through!
  • Interesting fact #17, this is not only a small ball 4 wall money event, but also marks stop #2 of the WPH Outdoor Cup Series (aka 2017 Race4Vegas), where players will receive full outdoor ranking points by playing indoor 4 wall big ball (WallBall) …and anyone can play. Expected entries from Cup Series #1, Juan Santos (CA), US Open Champion, Samzon Hernandez (CA), Five Time WPH Outdoor Doubles Champ(s), Timothy Gonzalez (NY) & Shorty Ruiz (AZ), and more!  Meanwhile, two former #1’s on the women’s outdoor ladder will be attending, when Tracy Davis (CA) and Ashley Moler (AZ) lace up their shoes, as they encourage more participation between now and the deadline [Feb 7th].
  • This will be a Yellow Jersey event for all money brackets; this will be a ranked event for women’s big ball and men’s big ball (WallBall) 4 wall.
  • Indoor small ball stars take a break from the pro tour, but still go after good cash, when Sean Lenning (AZ), Luis Moreno (AZ), David Fink (AZ), Abraham Montijo (AZ), Braulio Ruiz (AZ) and others tackle the bright lights of Vegas and this event. You can enter too (anyone can play).
  • WPH will be sing the R48pro ball for the small ball money divisions, but Red 21 (USHA) ball for all other small ball classes; meanwhile, the big ball (WallBall) will be the Red Ballistic; Women’s small ball will also be the Red 21, by USHA.
  • We don’t brag often so take this info and run with it how you wish, but our gift bags in Vegas Rock! If you’ve attended the September Outdoor Worlds than you already know what we are referring to.  At the Bob Harris Open expect Free Saturday Only Buffet tickets at the Stratosphere, Bob Harris Signature Shirt and other cool Swag.  Trust us on this one, it will be worth the entry!
