December 27th-30th, 2018
Portland, Oregon – Multnomah
When the WPH Visited the Multnomah Athletic Club back in 2016 it was immediately viewed as one of the most successful stops on the professional handball tour. Players and Fans alike enjoyed the amazing hospitality of the MAC, near-perfect weather of the Great Pacific Northwest, and awesome play from the event participants. Back in 2016, the WPH teamed up with the USHA to host this mega-event, as the National Master Singles took place at the same venue as the WPH Player’s Championship. This time around, the WPH joins forces with the governing body of the sport once again, when the 63rd USHA National Juniors kick off a day earlier (Dec 26th-Dec 28, 2018).
