Please make sure to check all of the information on the sign up site, especially the awesome number of divisions being offered at this event. Las Vegas is a 24 hour city and if this event draws a large number of racquetball and handball players then play can expect to extend into the early morning hours. How cool would it be to have a midnight match on the Las Vegas Strip?? I can't think of anything much cooler than that in racquetball. I'll be there for sure!!
