The upcoming Denver Athletic Club Handball Open will be held Oct 18-19. Entry fee is $70.  You'll get HANDBALL in Denver's Premier member-owned club, 3 awesome meals and great camaraderie. What could be better?


A great tournament held at one of the premier athletic clubs in the Nation!  There is a hotel directly across the street and the Downtown location offers many clubs and restaurants including the infamous Apaloosa Grill, owned by a handball player Johnnie Qualley.


We are once again doing a "shootout" style format, where all brackets play out every spot in the bracket, guaranteeing players 4 matches over two days!  We are offering three divisions this year;

Open/A Singles

Contenders (B/C) Singles

D/Novice Singles


PRIZES: Divisions will be played as true drop downs, with the famous DAC champion jackets offered for champions and in the Open, A, B, C, D and Novice divisions. Additional prizes for the runner-up in all divisions.


HOSPITALITY: The DAC has a new chef and we will be providing amazing hospitality including: Dinner on Friday, Breakfast and Lunch on Saturday, and Beer all weekend long. 


Divisions are limited to 16 players. If your desired bracket is full, please sign up for the next bracket up or down and we will re-organize the brackets to get the best competition possible.


Sign up by October 7th to receive a $5 early bird discount!


As usual, the Costigan youth handball fund will cover the entry for full time students, please use the coupon code COSTIGAN for full time students to comp your entry fee. We thank the Costigan youth fund for their help with this event.


Due to the tight schedule this format will require and to guarantee everybody a full slate of games all players must be able to play no later than 3 PM on Friday. All players must be available to play from 8 AM to 5 PM on Saturday.


Thank you for your participation and we will see you on the court!
