US OPEN Racquetball Championships--October 20-24, 2010--Minneapolis, MN

The 2010 15th US OPEN Racquetball Championships will be held October 20-24, 2010 in Minneapolis, MN at the Life Time Fitness-Target Center and the St. Louis Park Center. The event will feature all of the top men's players of the International Racquetball Tour (IRT), the women's players of the Women's Professional Racquetball Organization, (WPRO) and the Classic Pro Racquetball Tour (CPRT). The US OPEN is racquetball's original and largest "Grand Slam" event and the most prestigous tournament of the season.
The event will also offer amateur divisions for men and women and attracts players from all across the world. Last year, nearly 70 US OPEN champions were crowned and awarded the one-of-a-kind US OPEN gold medal that weighs nearly 2 pounds.

In the Men's IRT Professional division, World No. 1 Kane Waselenchuk, defending US OPEN champion made history last year by capturing his fifth US OPEN Championship and became the winningest man in US OPEN history. Leading the women for the WPRO is world No. 1 Paola Longoria who will be challenged by No. 2 Rhonda Rajsich, defending US OPEN champion and holder of three US OPEN Championships. The Classis Pro Racquetball Tour (CPRT) will also feature world No. 1 Cliff Swain who will be challenged by No. 2 Woody Clouse, defending US OPEN champion.
The entry deadline for all amateur players is Wednesday, October 6, 2010.
