Ms. V Honored as the 2017 WPH Volunteer of the Year
The WPH was thrilled to honor Veronica Figueroa, affectionately known as “Ms. V,” as the 2017 WPH Volunteer of the Year at the 2017 3WallBall Outdoor World Championships for her outstanding and selfless efforts in growing the sport and inspiring the next generation of players. Ms. V serves as the tournament director for the JR WPH NYC Shootout in Brooklyn, running and organizing a sensational junior handball tournament for youngsters between the ages of 11-19 every summer. In two years of running the JR WPH NYC Shootout, more than 200 junior handball players have participated, largely due to the efforts of Ms. V. Ms. V also provides tournament updates from New York City’s biggest 1-Wall events, volunteers at the 3WallBall Championships, and serves as a special advisor to the WPH board of directors.
“The WPH is so fortunate to have Ms. V on our team and helping us to grow this great game,” stated WPH Development Director David Fink. “The 1-Wall players from around the world have the utmost respect and love all for Ms. V, as does the WPH. Ms. V’s willingness to globally grow the game by traveling to tournaments, sponsoring players, and running tournaments is unsurpassed and awarding her with the 2017 WPH Volunteer of the Year award is a small token of our appreciation for her tremendous efforts.”
