It's a racquetball celebration and you're invited! The 2012 UnitedHealthcare US OPEN Racquetball Championships is proud to bring racquetball's original GRAND SLAM event back to Minneapolis, MN! The biggest names in professional racquetball from the Men's International Racquetball Tour (IRT), the Ladies' Professional Racquetball Tour (LPRT), and the Classic Pro Racquetball Tour (CPRT) will be competing for a prize purse totaling over $62,000. In addition, over 700 amateur players from around the world will compete in age and skill divisions at every level. The event is hosted by Life Time Fitness.
Play begins Wednesday, Oct. 3 and ends Sunday, Oct. 7. The main host club is the Life Time Fitness Target Center Club in downtown Minneapolis. All players must first register at that club before playing their first match. All pro matches and many amateur matches will take place there. Additional amateur matches may take place 3 blocks away at the Life Time Minneapolis Athletic club or at Life Time Fitness St. Louis Park (free shuttle).
