History: The Cincinnati City Open Championship was renamed the Hertzel Cup in honor of Rob Hertzel in January 2012. Hertzel Cup contestants have found this Championship to be the best Cincinnati paddle day of the year as teams compete and honor the legacy of Rob Hertzel who died of cancer on Nov 11, 2011. Robby was a long time friend and supporter of Cincinnati paddle community. Winning this Championship twice and chairing the tournament for a number of years, his passion for paddle, horses, golf and life was only surpassed by his love for his family. Robby was diagnosed with cancer on February 15, 2010, the Monday after the 2010 GCPTA Championship and played in the Championship even though challenged by the disease. It is our goal to honor Robby’s memory and courage by promoting the Hertzel Cup and cultivating its rich history and tradition in the future.
