The upcoming San Francisco WPH Race4Eight Professional Tour stop will bring post event interviews and special features, so stay tuned for that! Meanwhile, we will continue the Paul Brady Collection; a feature that re-plays a rare Brady moment during his hall of fame career (from interviews to handball matches).
Forthcoming projects? Dave Fink/Dave Vincent will analyse shots as they utilize the WPH’s vast catalog of slow motion replays. A post SFO RadioCast, more pro player insights and interviews, …and more!
This upcoming week we will give you details about the all-new Alexa app that gives handball news and updates; plus allows you to listen to the D&D RadioCast on either your Alexa device (Echo, Dot, Show) or your smart device (Phone, iPad, Tablet and more). This Alexa App/Skill has been developed JUST for Patreons of the WPH! More details to follow, or… go to your app and activate the Alexa skill for Handball now!
Coming Soon: All $12.00 Pledge Levels (and higher) will receive a personalized Killian Carroll Pro Tour Jersey (details forthcoming).
Wanting to watch San Francisco, but you do not get ESPN? WPH Patreons will receive a special link posted right to the Patreon page!

Exciting week for the WPH Patreons!
First, we began uploading all of the recorded matches from the Tucson LTE/Hall of Fame gig; to include the electrifying finals! We then turned the page on that event and gave you the latest from the, “Brady Collection.” Each week we feature either a match or rare interview from the Gunner (ie. greatest player to EVERY play the sport).
Pro player Vic Perez gave us a rare interview, as Dave & Dave formulated a behind the scenes plan to bring you a suggestion from one of the greatest Canadian Handball Players of all time, Peter Service. Peter asks if we could analyse slow motion shots and explain the technique and situation to help others with their games. YUP! We can do that and we will have something for you within a month!
Dave and Dave will also bring you a new RadioCast; we might ask Krueger to step back in!??
This week expect another Brady Collection item, Killian Carroll shirt giveaway, and a new video feature for those who own the Alexa Show! That’s right… You can ask Alexa to play handball videos. Not now, but by the end of the week! Stay tuned, this will be fun!!!

Since the WPH R48Pro LTE stop in Tucson wrapped, we’ve been adding videos slowly but surely to the WPH Patreon Page; home of exclusive handball content. We admit, to really do a bang-up job on video we need the full camera crew–we didn’t have that in Tucson! What we did have was a couple cameras fixed on the back wall and a couple microphones in the attempt to “at the very least,” archive and capture for prosperity, the matches as they occurred.
We filmed some matches in 4k, others just 960p in order to gather enough space on the SD card. We had some fans accidentally move cameras; we had to navigate through a scared-up back wall (racquetball rackets) and sound issues from the referee’s court mic. In all, we were able to gather a couple matches for just Patreon’s of the WPH.
’19 WPH R48Pro Tucson LTE – Men’s Final – Daniel Cordova vs Dave Fink
A basic three camera set up (three audio sources: Ref’s mic, floor-in-the-court mic, crowd noise mic); No commentary; no fancy replays, just a mixture of camera angles to archive the match for prosperity reasons and for WPH Patreons.
Daniel Cordova guns for his second pro stop victory of the season (to match brother Luis); as Dave Fink looks to grab his first ever yellow jersey in front of the home crowd, friends and family.
Some amazing gets and highlight-reel shots from both players on this day.
This was filmed in 4K. Does it mean you need to apply that setting on your player? No! You can get a very clear and clean signal by selecting a lower resolution. Or, let the video player select the best speed for your system by leaving it in the auto setting.
This video is available in 4k, 2k, 1080p, 720p, etc
To watch Daniel Cordova vs David Fink, go HERE>
Although Moler has defeated Davis in the past, she has not done so to win a small ball final. Can she do it at the 25th USHA Hall of Fame event? If so, she would have to do it while being three and a half months pregnant. Yeah! Didn’t stutter… Three and a half months!
We hope you enjoy the match!
This video will be given to WPH Patreon’s before the general public. However, since this was a USHA event, and out of good faith, we will send the video to the Tucson Hall of Fame for archiving. They may elect to upload to their YouTube Channel at a later time, thus releasing it to the public (and we hope they do!!!).
To watch Ashley Moler vs Tracy Davis, Go HERE>
Other Matches that have been uploaded to Patreon Supporters:
Sean Lenning vs Leo Canales – Rd of 8
David Fink vs Vic Perez – Rd of 8
The WPH may elect to upload even more video, so stay tuned!!!

What is WPH Patreon?
As a patron, you get to choose your monthly level of support, and in doing so gain access to exclusive “rewards” that are only available to Patreon supporters–the public will just have to wait!
In general, every patron gets access to the Patron-only feed, which is basically a mini-site on that platform where “The WPH Team” can post updates, notes, articles, videos, interviews, contests or other exclusives designed just for you (Patrons).
For WPH Patreons specifically, because we give practically everything away, we are using the patron-only feed to write “behind-the-scenes” type stuff that handball fans or sports nerds might dig (RadioCast, Breaking News Stories, etc). Then, depending on your monthly gift (Pledge), you can also access other rewards (Contests, free swag, special instructional videos, etc).
Think of Patreon as a Kickstarter for an ongoing projects/creations (vs. a one-time thing).
In all, we thank you so much for supporting us, as we are creating exclusive content just for you.
