With businesses closed down, athletic clubs restricting use and handball facilities with their doors closed, many people have turned to the Intranets for streaming options.
We get it!
PATREON: So much so, that we have been creating never-seen-before handball features for those who have made pledges to WPH Patreon (patreon.com/wphlive).
“Exclusive Content” on WPH Patreon includes newly edited instructional clinics, player interviews, rare handball matches, slow motion clips, obscure handball articles from 100 years back, simulated handball tournaments and more! “In fact, we upload or post new content every 12 hours, if not sooner, during the coronavirus pandemic,” says WPH Director, Dave Vincent. “Most people are told to stay home, some businesses have closed doors, but our staff is working everyday, from the safety of our homes, preparing new content for our pledge supporters.”
“The NYAC tournament that you guys had to cancel was unfortunate, but reading your simulated handball tournament daily wrap-ups in real time, and as the event ‘hypothetically-unfolded’ was the highlight of my weekend!” Writes WPH Patreon, Mark Gilmer.
“Who wrote that simulated handball tournament from New York? Funniest thing I’ve read in some time.” – Ashley Moler.
In addition to the daily posts on WPH Patreon, the WPH will be releasing a power serve breakdown by WPHLiveTV & Jeff Kastner Productions, along with Ciana Ni Churraoin and Dave Fink as instructors. This 10-minute instructional will be released by Thursday late afternoon and will be available first for Patreon supporters at patreon.com/wphlive.
