The Fred Lewis Foundation’s Salute to Kids Handball Tournament kicks off in Tucson, AZ, this day at the Tucson Racquet and Fitness Club [TRC], featuring area players and handball fanatics from out of town and state. “Of the 73 entered, 4o are juniors,” states Lewis, the FLF namesake. “Tanner Cleveland is doing a great job with Junior WPH kids and Kids from both groups are starting to interact and getting to know one another which is very positive.” Fred Lewis vacated his roll as WPH President in early 2013 and formed the Fred Lewis Foundation for Kids; which has been flourishing ever since.
FLF will be holding a fundraising silent auction at Ventana Canyon Country Club on November 22nd, in Tucson, AZ, featuring cocktails and dinner; then, a month later, the FLF will be playing host as the USHA Junior Nationals will begin December 26th – December 30th at the TRC. It’s a busy stretch of months for the former 6-time 4 wall singles champ, “I will have my other hip replaced on January 27th .”
“We at the WPH wish “Steady” Freddy luck and much support with the surgery and upcoming tournaments, fundraisers and events,” claims Dave Vincent, WPH Executive Director. “Lewis has a ton of passion for the kids and they respond to him which is very cool.” WPH will be donating the prize purse for the local Pro division; which features the likes of Sean Lenning, Luis Moreno, Abraham Montijo, Danny Perez, Chris Maldonado, Vinnie Natale and more.
