2014-15 LPRT Season Schedule

The 2014-15 Ladies Pro Racquetball Tour (LPRT) season starts this weekend, and it's scheduled to be the largest women's professional season ever as there will be 14 Grand Slam or Tier 1 events. There have been 12 events in seasons past, including last season as well as 2002-03 and 2001-02, 1996-97. But 14 events is a first.

The expansion can be explained by the popularity of Paola Longoria, the LPRT's number 1 player, in her home country of Mexico (she has almost 100,000 followers on Twitter). Four of the first six events this season will be in Mexico starting with this weekend's Torneo Fenapo in San Luis Potosi, Mexico.

In addition to those events, the Mile High Pro/Am is back on the schedule. The other nine events were also on the schedule last year, including the US Open in Minneapolis and the LPRT Pro Nationals in Virginia, where the season will come to a close next May.

Here's the complete season schedule.
