“Handball is a very personal sport. We play this game with our hands–striking a ball against a wall and repeating the motions in search of something that is hard to define. There is not much gear involved or fancy clothing necessary. We show up and play. Some show up and become staples in the handball community. …Characters. …Jokesters. …Leaders. Some show up, play and silently go home leaving us wondering who they are away from the game.
In all, over time, we find ourselves competing with our closest of friends. This tournament (November 6-8th, Tucson, Arizona) and is designed to honor and celebrate the lives of those that have come and gone; affecting our lives in the process.
