Pittsburgh, PA, WPH Press, 2/24/20-

The World Players of Handball is thrilled to present the 12th edition of the Rodney Fink Classic February 28-29, the WPH’s longest running event. The RFC 12 will feature the R48LTE and the SR48, as the R48 pros will compete in the sixth of nine 2019/20 R48 IX stops, while the SR48 stars will compete in their second of three SR48 stops on the 2019/20 SR48 season.


R48 #1 Killian Carroll headlines the RFC R48LTE field, as Carroll will be seeking his second title of the 2019/20 season. Joining Carroll in the deep RFC draw will be Danos Cordova, David Fink, Vic Perez, Marcos Chavez, Stephen Cooney, and a number of rising stars from PA, OH, MO, MN and Canada.


David Fink and Marcos Chavez headline the RFC SR48 field, having faced one another in the last seven SR48 finals dating back to February of 2018.
