[19-45-of-119-300x200]Tucson, AZ, WPH Press, 10/28/19-  The fifth annual 2019 Tucson Memorial marks the 60th event in the history of the Race 4 Eight tour, with the tour spanning 16 states in the R48’s first eight seasons. The 2019 Tucson Memorial will feature the largest prize purse of the 2019 handball season ($35k), with the top R48 Men’s pros, Women Race 4 Eight, and Senior Race 4 Eight (40+) pros vying for one of the sport’s most prestigious prizes. The Tucson Memorial was created in 2015 to honor handball friends and family who were sadly lost, a tradition that has evoked wonderful memories of handball players and fans who spent their lifetimes playing and supporting in the sport.
