PITTSBURGH HOSTS THE WPH’S RFC 11 R48 9 Pre Qualifier + 1-Wall Singles

Pittsburgh, PA, WPH Press - The World Players of Handball is thrilled to present the longest running WPH event, the WPH’s Rodney Fink Classic 11, July 13-14, 2019 at L.A. Fitness Bridgeville, 1155 Washington Pike, Bridgeville, PA 15017.

The RFC 11 will feature the first 2019/20 R48 9 Pre Qualifier of the season, with the highest finisher in the RFC 11 not ranked inside the R48 8 Elite 8 receiving a R48 main draw direct entry into the 2019/20 R48 9 Atlanta (October 2019) and a travel stipend, and prize money for the RFC 11 champion! That’s a three-bagger!

*A minimum of two players ranked between #9-25 on the R48 rankings as of July 1, 2019 must be entered in the RFC 11 for the direct entry clause to be in effect for Atlanta. If the winning player does not take the direct entry into Atlanta, that player can use the travel stipend towards another 2019/20 R48 9 event, but will not have the direct entry option.

The RFC 11 will also feature 1-Wall singles on Sunday, July 14, 4-Wall B singles, 4-Wall Playoff singles, as well as JR WPH junior handball clinics.

Fans will be asked to enter the non-player bracket for $40 per day, which will cover food and drink throughout the day and a reserved seat at the RFC’s main court. The RFC will feature non-stop hospitality and a Saturday night party!

“The RFC is the highlight of the year in Pittsburgh handball,” stated Pittsburgh’s #1 star Mike Semplice. “We are so fortunate to have the best players in the world coming through Pittsburgh for the eleventh consecutive year at the WPH’s RFC.”

Pittsburgh is one of the best cities in the country to visit in the summer, as the Steel City boasts a vibrant nightlife and family-friendly activities, to include the Pittsburgh Zoo, Phipps Conservatory, the Duquesne Incline, Pittsburgh Pirates baseball at PNC Park and so much more.
