WPH R48Pro V Stop #3 – Mardi Gras Open/New Orleans – Jan 22-24, 2016

NO2The World Players of Handball returns to The Big Easy!

In March of 2009, you recall, the WPH traveled to Nola where Dave Chapman defeated Allan Garner in a heated tiebreaker. This 2009 event was originally scheduled for September of 2008 but tournament organizers had to reschedule due to Hurricane Gustav. Gustav tore into the American Coast just days earlier causing over $4 Billion in damages. “Man, we had the worst luck back in those days,” says WPH Director, Dave Vincent. “We could write a book about our tour locations. One stop had a tornado, another gave us a volcano scare …frozen rain …blizzards …we had it all! We have so put that behind us.”

The WPH is outside the hurricane season for this upcoming Race4Eight Stop (Jan 22-24, 2016) and the nearest volcano is some 2,000 north american miles away. “The only damage happening this particular weekend will be broken balls and Bourbon Street VIP parties in the French Quarter,” claims Vincent.

WPH film crews will be on hand to capture the action; meanwhile, locals will watch the best handball players on the planet with Paul Brady, Luis Moreno, Emmett Peixoto, and Sean Lenning, to name just a few, expected. WPH will name eight Elite players and qualify eight more. The pro qualifier will begin at 9am on Friday, with a bracket capped at 32 and anyone can enter. Pro elite main court matches begin at 2pm.

Note: There will be a regular tournament alongside the pros and you can enter.
