Ninth annual 3 WallBall Sports Festival in Vegas

18 September 2018

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Stratosphere Casino, Hotel & Tower joins World Outdoor Racquetball and the National Paddleball Association to bring the richest tournament in outdoor court sports back to the Las Vegas Strip on Wednesday, 26 September through Friday, 30 September. On its traditional late September weekend, the event will take advantage of the great fall weather with highs forecast in the low 90’s and lows in the mid ’60s. With over 500 players expected from nearly 30 states and seven countries playing over a thousand racquetball, handball and paddleball matches, players and fans will enjoy the great weather, great special events, exciting play, and, of course, all the day and nightlife of Las Vegas.

Plans for 2018 include a projected total of 23 three-wall and one-wall courts to be used for play. Event Director of the 2018 3 WallBall Sports Festival, Peggine Tellez confirmed athletes will be competing over the weekend for more than $25,000 in cash and prizes. Top-level racquetball stars expected to attend include Rocky Carson, Maria Vargas, Daniel and Michelle De La Rosa, Alvaro Beltran, Rhonda Rajsich, Marty Hogan and Natalia Mendez.

The 3 WallBall Sports Festival will feature several events in recognition of its commitment to support the Military Racquetball Federation. The first official event of the week is the Pro-Am Charity Doubles where pro racquetball players partner with donors who made donations to help support the MRF’s racquetball rehabilitation programs for wounded warriors. The event offers singles and doubles amateur divisions for Police, Fire & Military personnel as well as Wheelchair divisions for the third year. On Saturday night, a US Military Color Guard will pay tribute to all those players in the event who have served our country, and in the past, a Wounded Warrior has been invited to participate and address the fans.

The 2018 3 WallBall Sports Festival will broadcast live worldwide for free over multiple online platforms such as: IRT Network, Facebook, YouTube and Twitch TV. The event will also stream to USA Racquetball and 3 WallBall networks.
