Chapman won the inaugural RFC in 2009, followed by Fink, Shanks and Cooney. Several of the WPH Race 4 Eight’s top stars will be in attendance at the RFC 8, including WPH R48 #8 David Fink and WPH #12 Stephen Cooney.

“I am really excited to be hosting the RFC for the eighth time,” revealed RFC tournament director David Fink. “Co-tournament hosts Mike Semplice and Rodney Fink ensure that every player is treated to an outstanding weekend of handball, hospitality, camaraderie and Pittsburgh culture. The RFC is a must-attend event.”
