Q.  When do juniors play?

A.  Saturday and Sunday only.  Pre-register right now for $5.00, HERE>


Q.  $5.00 entry?  What’s the catch?

A.  No catch.  The WPH is solely in business to develop the game of handball while promoting to mass audiences.  We are a non profit 501(c)3 Foundation that has geared up to bring this event to Huntington Beach and we expect more than 1,00 juniors to participate.  We have asked for donations and help all year long and this weekend we will honor the next generation of our sport


Q.  How do I donate?

A.  You can do it a few ways, send payment to PayPal @, Send payment to:  WPH, 3561 E Sunrise Drive #125, Tucson, AZ, 85718, or go to our pay feature on our website @


Q.  Can I sign my child up on the morning of the event and skip on-line registration?

A.  Yes.  However, on-line is best as it gives us a true number and more clean bracket to work with; those that sign up on line will be seeded higher.  Those that register at the event have to do so before 10am.  Adults have to pre-register by Noon Pacific on Wednesday, no exceptions!


Q.  How do the trophies work?

A.  We don’t quite know, but we made wayyyy too many and someone will be taking home some hardware.  WPH has special backpacks stacked full of back to school supplies for all division winners (singles) in junior categories.  They also made big stand-up trophies and have medals for first and second place finishers.  Adults have the same type of process; minus the backpacks.  Pro Division winners may also receive Yellow Jerseys, Cash awards, trophies and valuable ranking points.  WPH now ranks a player’s performance in A Doubles and A singles.  Those in the top four at the end of the season are winners of the title “Fab Four” of Outdoor Big Ball 3 Wall and will have all entries at WPH Sanctioned events paid for over the next 12 months (post Vegas).  Additionally, the top male and female ranked star will receive a free weekend Suite in Vegas at the Stratosphere as part of the Hemborg Ford Cup bonus.  Whew!  Told ya it was more than we could remember…
