9/26/13, Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, Press- The first stop of the Race 4 Eight III season will kick off in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho at the Plummer Helluva Family Handball Bash October 4th through 6th at the Peak Health and Wellness. The Plummer Bash was the site of the inaugural Race 4 Eight I Stop, and the WPH is ecstatic to return to one of the most enthusiastic stops on the tour with the best hospitality in handball.
The winner of the Plummer Bash will receive $5k, and take the lead in the Race for Salt Lake City and the Player's Championship. The Plummer draw has attracted the top eight American players, as well as the deepest qualifier draw in Race history. The qualifier draw features nine-time 4-Wall singles national champion, David Chapman, two-time defending national collegiate champion, Martin Mulkerrins, former national collegiate champion Mando Ortiz, former top-five pro, Marcos Chavez, former top ten and multiple qualifier, Jon Iglesias, and Race 4 Eight Elite 8 members, Luis Cordova, Vic Perez and Anthony Selestow.
"Just look at the qualifier draw," exclaimed WPH Executive Director, David Vincent. "If we would have allowed 64, we would have gotten it. I have heard from multiple Irish players and even some from Australia and Canada that wanted to play. I feel that the cash is a new more professional addition, but I also think each location has really rolled out the red carpet. Seriously, could you find better stops in better locations than we have on the docket? Jake's Tournament sold out 45 days ago and if the facility had four more courts we would have over 200. The World Players of Handball and all of the players attending the Plummer Bash are thrilled to return to the beautiful scenery and appreciative galleries in Coeur d'Alene. Read more HERE>
