Fountain Valley, CA, WPH Press, 7/3/19- Six of the world’s top pros teamed up with seven of the Southern California junior stars for a special Pro/Am 3-Wall Doubles Championship on Los Cab’s 3-Wall courts at the 69th annual USHA Four Wall National Championships. The juniors played between 5-7 matches with their heroes, enjoying the camaraderie and competition that makes handball the perfect game.
“Our kids had such a great time playing with and against the pros,” stated Coach Patrick Saito. “This was such a cool experience for them and definitely one they’ll never forget.”
“I had a great time playing doubles with the pros and I even had a chance to play some 3-Wall singles with the pros,” stated 1-Wall, 3-Wall, and 4-Wall junior singles and doubles national champion David Sanchez iii. “Thank you!”
“Playing doubles with the juniors was the most fun experience in what was perfect tournament at Los Cab,” stated WPH Development Director David Fink. “Sharing the court with the juniors and seeing their smiles is why the WPH and the USHA are so motivated to teach handball to as many people as we can.”
David Fink and his dad Rodney took the Pro/Am 3-Wall Doubles title, going undefeated in five matches of round robin play.
