Cali Open kicks off 2015-16 LPRT season

A small but elite field has gathered in Cali, Colombia to kick off the 2015-16 Ladies Professional Racquetball Tour (LPRT) season. Paola Longoria, the LPRT's #1 player, will be looking to start the season on the right foot.

Longoria, a triple gold medal winner - Women's Singles, Doubles & Team - for Mexico at last month's Pan American Games in Toronto, is joined in Cali by five other Mexicans. She'll face the winner of veteran left hander Susana Acosta and Sofia Rascon. Also, Samantha Salas, Longoria's doubles partner in Toronto, is the 5th seed, and Jessica Parrilla and Carolina Luque are the 10th and 11th seeds, respectively.

There are only 12 players in the draw, so they are doing the tournament in two days. The Round of 16 and quarterfinals will be Friday with the semi-finals and final on Saturday.
