2017 WRT Alamo City Open - Preview

The 2017 World Racquetball Tour (WRT) season ends this weekend with the Alamo City Open in San Antonio, Texas. David Horn can finish #1, if he wins the tournament, but he comes into the event seeded #2 with Rodrigo Montoya #1. Fewer than 200 ranking points separate Horn and Montoya with Andree Parrilla in 3rd about 1200 points behind Horn.

Horn won the last WRT title in Utah, and two of the last three, which is part of how he’s got himself into position to finish the year on top. But the Alamo City field is good with all of the top 10 ranked WRT players set to compete in San Antonio.

The Round of 32 will begin Friday morning with the Round of 16 to follow late Friday afternoon and evening. The quarterfinals begin Saturday morning at 10:30 AM with the semi-finals Saturday evening at 5 PM and 6:05 PM. The final is set for Sunday at 12:30 PM. You can watch the action live on Saturday and Sunday via the WRT website or the WRT Facebook page.
