Racquetball Championships Will Draw Pros from IRT, LPRT and CPRT as well as over 600 amateur competitors.

The UnitedHealthcare US Open 2013 racquetball championships will be held October 2-6 in Minneapolis, MN
The 2013 UnitedHealthcare US OPEN, the world’s largest and most prestigious racquetball tournament, announced today that the 18th Annual US OPEN event will be held October 2-6 in beautiful Minneapolis, MN.  The Entry Form/Ticket Application is now available on-line at http://www.unitedhealthcareusopen.com/

The US OPEN will again feature all the top pro players in the world from the IRT, LPRT, and CPRT as well as over 600 amateur competitors.  Age and skill divisions are offered in both singles and doubles.  New for 2013 is the addition of 8 Centurion Doubles (partners ages must add up to at least 100) divisions for Men, Women, and Mixed teams.

“If you have never attended the US OPEN you need to treat yourself in 2013,”  stated event Director Doug Ganim.  “There is nothing like it in the sport of racquetball and represents a true celebration of the sport.  Playing in the event, watching the pros on the portable stadium racquetball court, and attending all the evening social functions makes it a week you will never forget” Ganim went on to explain.

For the ultimate experience attendees should consider purchase a four person Courtside Luxury GOLD BOX complete with Pro/GOLD Lounge Access for the week. ALL food and drink for the week is included and guests will get to visit with the top pros all week in an intimate Lounge setting. Cost is $2,800 for the 4-person box or $800 for an individual seat. Please call (614) 890-6073 for availability as space is extremely limited.

Another great experience is to participate in the Pro-Am Doubles for Children’s Charities on Wednesday evening. The first 32 amateurs to sign up will get to play with top ranked pros in a single elimination doubles draw on Wednesday evening during the tourney (amateur matches will be scheduled around this event for all participants). Each amateur receives an autographed racquet from the pro partner and food/drink for the evening. Donation to St. Jude/JDRF is $325. Please call (614) 890-6073 to sign up.
