You just enter w/out a partner and a triple reverse blind draw will be used to determine who you play with (..okay, joking about the triple-reverse, but we will seed the gig and make it fair and competitive).
Junior WPH is raising funds for handball development and asks that you make a donation of ANY SIZE to the WPH, if you support the direction and movement of exposing the game to the masses. Special pro-to-junior clinics and training will occur all weekend long (skills competitions, challenges, more…).
This event will bring a special souvenir to all who enter or participate; there will be continuous food and drink supplied from Friday afternoon thru Sunday (no banquet, but we do expect some cool group activities, so please contact us with your arrival dates so we can put you on the list of events). In lieu of a banquet, the WPH will stop action and memorialize our fellow handball players that have fallen throughout the past year and years previously, with a positive ceremony to air on ESPN between the men’s pro semifinals on Saturday night.
Must be a WPH Member to participate (on line at www.thehandballstore.com)
