KWM Gutterman 3WallBall in Las Vegas - 2022 

3WallBall in Las Vegas Highlights

By now you have been seeing some great photos and videos of the largest outdoor event of the year - keep on posting!


For the second year in a row Keith Minor was a major force in presenting the KWM Gutterman Las Vegas 3WallBall World Championships 2022, in celebration of our sport. We are encouraged by the increasing number of indoor players becoming regular enthusiasts of the outdoor game. Happily, we recognized that racquetball is racquetball no matter the number of walls. Skill, experience, attitude and just plain bangin’ the ball is what makes racquetball so great.


With our streaming partners, LPRT and IRT, pro matches streamed at the same time with over 150,000 views of matches played during and after the event. Both Tours had more pro's playing this year’s event than ever before as the outdoors game is on an upswing. We have to give thanks to AGE Solutions and ProKennex for hosting this unique event as well at The STRAT for our location on the Las Vegas strip.


To all our sponsors; we appreciate you more than you know and work to increase your visibility with pre and post event promotion. Please support our major sponsors whenever possible as well as all those support this event. See for more sponsor information. Major sponsors - Ahern Rental, Roscoe Halsey of LPL Financial, SodaMan Vending, MZ Companies, Team Root, Bizz-e-Beez Party Rentals, Strider Event Productions, Team DoveTail and our official ball provided by GearBox. We thank our partners - USAR-WOR-NPA-MRF/MACS and HEAD.

For the first time Squash57 was introduced as an outdoor division and we had several multi-sport players which is what this major outdoor competition is about.


The 2022 3WB edition brought about 400 players to THE STRAT for excellent competition with stellar examples of the grace and athleticism of racquetball. Competing for a Prize Purse of $44,000 helped to draw a crowd of players.


Kicking off the event was a well-attended MRF/MACS Pro-Am Doubles in support of their mission to provide sporting opportunities to our wounded service members. 10 Amateur players had the opportunity to play with each Pro as a partner. This is a great way to provide your support and your donations are greatly appreciated!


Racquetball, Squash57 and paddleball swung into action Thursday morning with all courts seeing action with skybox views of the spectacle from the VIP Box area, very well received. Friday had the courts shared as our handball brethren gathered for some very intense competition.

A very scary moment happened when Alvaro Beltran, who was headed in semi-finals and finals of several events went down with an injury during the RB Men’s Pro Doubles semis. Thanks to the quick responses of Dr Gray, Scott Warren and LV paramedics, Alvaro was attended to right way. We wish Alvaro a swift recovery.


A hearty Thank You to all those involved in making this event happen from literally the ground up! From the folks that construct the courts to the staff the run desk operations who ran the event on time all weekend, the streaming teams, the medical team that kept our players healthy and safe, all the volunteers that helped with reffing, the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority for providing folks to help monitoring the courts and shagging balls, the Military Corp from Nellis Air Force Base for their service on Saturday; we could not have made it through the week without all of you.
