The 2018 Armed Forces Memorial Day Tournament proudly honors our nation’s heroes with one of the best handball events in the country on Memorial Day Weekend.  The 2018 Armed Forces features four of the top five pros on the R48 tour and six of the top 18. R48 #1 Killian Carroll slammed the 2017 Armed Forces, winning the singles and teaming with tournament director Abraham Montijo to win the doubles. Carroll will be seeking his second consecutive Armed Forces title, but will have to overcome several of his greatest rivals to repeat.
