Prize Money Increases - The WPH Outdoor Group does not receive entry fee money for this event--All prize money for Handball has to be raised independently. As sponsors and donors come aboard, we place funds right into the divisions that are performing (most players and/or #trending) and there have been some dramatic increases over the past 24 hours. The tabs have your answer, or go HERE>
Rules for Handball - have relatively stayed the same since our first year (2010); however, each year we make minor tweaks to better the game for the fans, players and ESPN brass. Find the full rules for 2016’s 3WallBall Outdoor World Championships (Handball-quadrant serving smallball singles only/NO 2 wall serve for big ball or small ball) HERE>
Official Big Ball for Handball - in Vegas is the Penn Ballistic Red Ball. Details are HERE> You can purchase the Penn Red right now for a less-than-suggested retail price, as a tester before you play, HERE>
Prize Money, Trophies & Yellow Jerseys - awarded to WPH Player’s Card Members only (membership); a participant will only be eligible for prize money if their membership is current prior to playing their first tournament match. There will be no exceptions. See the WPH before the tournament deadline for details or purchase now, HERE> Memberships will be sold at the Handball Desk in Vegas for $20.00.
Season Ending Bonuses - The Race2Vegas will award bonus money to the Top Four Ranked Women & Men (to be paid after the Vegas Event concludes at the Simple Green US Open of Handball in October). A player in the top four must: 1. Be a WPH member holding a player’s card before their first match in Vegas -and- US Open 2. Be entered in the US Open in an outdoor ranked division and present - in order to receive their yearly bonus. See WPH with questions: The Outdoor Rankings use small ball, big ball, 1 wall & 3 wall singles and doubles results to determine points throughout the 2016 season. WPH Outdoor will calculate the player’s best three results in Vegas from: Pro Big Ball Men’s & Women’s Singles/Doubles 1 & 3 Wall plus Pro Men’s Small Ball Singles & Doubles.
Top 4 Ranked Men & Women's, post Vegas, Bonus Payouts as follows: 1st $1,000, 2nd $500, 3rd $400, 4th $350 - In case of a tie the WPH will first look at current season head-to-head match ups, then Vegas result match ups. If a tie still occurs, there could be a sudden death play-off to seven points (win by two) where one player will pick the wall (3 wall or 1 wall) on the coin flip and the opponent will pick the ball (big or small).
ESPN Coverage - WPHLiveTV will be broadcasting Handball, Racquetball & Paddleball on ESPN3 & the WatchESPN App beginning Friday, September 23rd, 2016.
