Ben Manning was a camera operator at all WPH ESPN gigs for the past three years.  A reliable, hard-working man who gave his own personal time to help grow the game of handball.  Today, Mr Manning lost his bout with cancer and passed in the early hours.  He will be missed by those that he captured on film and will forever be apart of the WPH Film Team.  The 2017/18 Season will be played in his honor.
