2016 LPRT Winter Classic Preview

The Ladies Professional Racquetball Tour (LPRT) is back in action this weekend with the 11th Annual Winter Classic in Overland Park, Kansas. The draw is smaller that usual, but three of the top four LPRT players will be in action, including IRT #1 Paola Longoria, #3 Rhonda Rajsich, and #4 Frédérique Lambert. Longoria is undefeated this season, but both Rajsich and Lambert have won games against her, so she won’t be winning easily in Kansas.

They’ll also play doubles in Kansas, but with some of the top players missing, and Longoria not playing doubles, the field will be wide open. Lambert and Sofia Rascon are the top seeds in doubles with US Open finalists Alexandra Herrera and Monserrat Mejia as 2nd seeds.

Also in the doubles draw is Rhonda Rajsich, who’s playing with Carlos Muñoz, as well as current Canadian Women’s Doubles Champions Danielle Drury and Jennifer Saunders, who’ll be in tough off the bat against Herrera and Meija.

The action starts Friday, and the Round of 16 can be seen live via the LPRT Livestream channel from 3 PM central time.
