This open event allows ANY player to enter the Pro Qualifier bracket, Senior 40+ division or State Doubles! Pro Qualifier begins Friday morning at 9am; meanwhile, All other divisions begin after 4pm, Friday, January 23rd. “We ask that all pro participants contact us for updated rule changes and format tweaks,” says WPH Player’s Rep, Dave Fink. “We have made some slight changes heading into this season, for the better, to include 15-15-15 main bracket pro round of sixteen’s and a slight alteration to the bad bounce rule.” In addition, WPH pays $5,000 for first place in the Elite bracket and ALL top 16 players will get ranking points, cash and play-off experience.
