Phoenix, AZ, WPH Press, 2/1/20- JR WPH was thrilled to head to Phoenix’s Carl Hayden High School to conduct clinics and point play with the vibrant Hayden High School student handball community that play handball during the two Hayden High School lunch periods. WPH Master Instructor David Fink started each of the sessions with a brief instructional, focusing on the strategy and placement of the serve, the technique of hitting kill shots, and the benefits of using the side walls. Following the instruction, the high school students were eager to test their skills in singles and doubles against Coach Fink. Coach Fink played close to 30 combined games between the two lunch periods.
“Spending the afternoon at Hayden High School was a truly incredible experience,” stated David Fink. “As a handballer, there is nothing more exciting and inspiring than seeing young people playing the game. Hayden High School boasts five 3-Wall courts, all filled with handball during the two Hayden lunch periods. The kids had wonderful attitudes and were all enjoying having the opportunity to play on a beautiful Arizona afternoon. Thank you to Coach Chris Hogan, who is doing an outstanding job recruiting, inspiring, coaching, and mentoring so many Hayden students. This afternoon at Hayden High School was truly one of my favorite experiences in handball.”
“I would like to thank David Fink, the 5th ranked handball player in the world, for stopping by Carl Hayden, during both lunches,” stated Carl Hayden head handball coach and ambassador Chris Hogan, who played several of the lunch period games against Coach Fink. “Mr. Fink came to see what Carl Hayden handball was all about, and to meet with some of our students who play. These students took the opportunity to speak with Mr. Fink, and appreciated his tips and/or suggestion about their game. The students wanted Mr. Fink to return the next day!”
