Rise of the Prospects

Rise of the Prospects was started on October 8, 2017 by Chris Cariaso and Jen Richardson. After they moved to Tucson, AZ from San Fransisco, Chris and Jen soon realized that the only local tournaments were hosted in Phoenix. Soon, Rise of the Prospects was born!

As one of the only local Tucson tournaments meant specifically for beginners and amateurs of all levels, Chris and Jen have given their community a chance to support all levels of athleticism and competition!

They would like to extend a special thank you to Savannah Quiroz, the production manager of ROP, for helping make these events possible!

Rise of the Prospects



The first Rise of the Prospects was held on October 8, 2017 at the Whistle Stop Depot. Within 3 events, ROP had become so popular that they had to move to a larger venue! After trying out the Hotel Tucson, the event landed at the historic Rialto Theatre. The local Tucsonian landmark, was the perfect location for Rise of the Prospects.
