Posted on Sep 10 2016 - 6:40am by DV

Today, Dave Chapman was inducted into the Southern California Handball Hall of Fame by our own Dave Vincent [WPH Executive Director] at the historic Los Angeles Athletic Club.  Chapman, not only tore up the record books for the sport,  but was an instrumental part in the growth and development of the World Players of Handball in the infant years.  “The WPH saved me,” said Chapman.  “I retired and thought I’d never play again, then you guys came along and started to breathe new and exciting life into the sport.  You made me want to play and I thank you for that.”

Chapman receives the Spotlight Award for his amazing on-court play and junior development & coaching with the WPH group.

The World Players of Handball is a non-profit 501(c)3 Foundation that relies on support from handball players and fans. At times, there are those who go over and beyond to help the sport grow and the WPH would like to highlight those over-achievers with special Spotlight Awards.

The spotlight recognizes the incredible time and effort people and athletes put into our incredible game; to include individuals who achieve greatness on the court, while meeting milestones, acting as role models, and leading a strong and healthy life.
