3WallBall 2019 World Championships as Vegas
The 2019 3WallBall World Championships heralded the 10th Anniversary of this one-of-a-kind event. THE STRAT, ProKennex, Gearbox, Hemborg Ford and Bella Vista Windows & Doors played host to nearly 500 players from 5 countries and 28 states competing in over 750 matches in 68 divisions, eliciting thrilling performances and raucous banter amongst players and spectators. The 10th Anniversary of 3WallBall delivered a special feel for the players and guests with offerings from the Crafted Buffet for incomparable player meals and distinctive events – the return of Ladies Night, a perennial favorite and the quickly reconfigured player party starting in the View Lounge and ending at 107 for a night of dancing. Temps in the desert were a delight this year adding to the outdoor attitude and energy. The Pro-Am doubles benefitting 3WBs official charity – Military Racquetball Federation - kicked things off Wednesday night leading into Thursday morning’s competition. The highlights of Saturday night were the CPRT doubles Finals, the Nellis Air Force Base Color Guard and the introduction of the 2019 WOR Hall of Fame inductees, Mike Coulter, Mike Peters & Davey Bledsoe. We are thankful for the players and sponsors whom continue to support this tournament, the largest Outdoor Racquetball, Handball & Paddleball event under the sun.
