2017 IRT Coast to Coast California Open - Preview

International Racquetball Tour (IRT) gets right back to business in 2017 with the Coast to Coast California Open in Reseda, California, where IRT #1 Kane Waselenchuk will be looking to start the year off right. Joining Waselenchuk in California will be Rocky Carson, IRT #2, Daniel De La Rosa, #3, and Alvaro Beltran, #4.

There are 25 players in the draw with Jose Diaz, Charlie Pratt, and David Horn highlighting the qualifying draw on Thursday. Although Diaz is arguably the best player in qualifying, he has to play Luis Felipe Munoz, who is no slouch, but it would be a definite upset if Munoz came out on top.

The IRT Round of 16 will be streamed live Friday from 11 AM via the IRT Network with the quarterfinals Friday afternoon from 4 PM on. Also, the semi-finals will be 11 AM and Noon Saturday with the final Saturday night at 7:00 PM. All times Pacific.
