Tucson, AZ, WPH Press, 11/3/19-

JR WPH was thrilled to host the 2019 JR WPH Singles at the Memorial, featuring more than 30 young handballers from Tucson’s Fred Lewis Foundation, Phoenix’s Carl Hayden High School, California, Texas, Ireland, Canada, and Mexico. The junior stars took over The Memorial courts on Saturday, bringing enthusiasm and infectious smiles to the WPH’s marquee event of the year.

Thank you to Greg Lambert, Abraham Montijo, Chris Hogan, Matt Goode, and Spence Hatcher for running an outstanding event!

“We had a great time and it was really fun watching the kids,” stated Lambert, proud father of 13-and-under champion Luke. “Everyone was patient and showed great sportsmanship. I loved running the event.”

“We want to thank the WPH for a wonderful experience at the Memorial,” stated Phoenix’s Carl Hayden Handball Coach and promoter Chris Hogan. “Most of our players played two or three matches. The courts were always active and everyone was able to play continuously throughout the event. We’re looking forward to coming back to Tucson to play again soon.”
