The Tucson Memorial Handball Open was designed to honor and celebrate friends and family of the sport, that have passed, with hopes of highlighting their life achievements, archiving their legacies, and sharing their stories.
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, Tucson, Arizona) and web page is designed to honor and celebrate the lives of those that have come and gone; affecting our lives in the process.

The Tucson Memorial Handball open is not about the local community, it’s about the handball community honoring amazing people and preserving their lifelong memories after they have left us. Please help us celebrate by sharing this page, alerting us to those that have fallen, and passing along stories from our friends in the handball community.
