FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif. — It was a furious pace on and off the courts on Sunday as the cameras caught the action inside and out. In the men’s singles final, Robbie McCarthy held off Armando Ortiz for the biggest check of the weekend. In the photo, Lupita Bike, Bruce FaBrizio and Naty Alvarado congratulate the finalists. “Just look at this audience,” FaBrizio said. It’s all shapes, sizes and ages, just like the balls we’re using here at Los Caballeros. See the results from the Festival of handball at the SGUSO r2sports site HERE.
There were some periods of light rain for most of the morning but it eventually caused the end to play outdoors in the afternoon. The three-wall big ball moved inside where the players proved that they were equally adept at four-wall to the delight of the fans.
This year, the Simple Green U.S. Open carried two WPH Live streams; one on ESPN3 and the other on www.race4eight.com where outdoor and indoor handball could be viewed at the same time! Replay now available on WatchESPN and the WatchESPN App.
