From Buhl Club player and ambassador Jay Cattron: “Two of them: one was the exhibition we had with David Fink, Dave Chapman and Allan Garner in 2009 and a tournament in the 70’s with Paul Haber and some of those big names.”

“The Buhl Club is a full community center with wellness center, daycare, pool, etc, similar to a YMCA or JCC type facility,” stated Jay Cattron. “The courts are solid and fast with expectable bounce. Great for hosting tournaments with full viewing on all three courts.”

Thank you to Jeff and Jay Cattron for sharing info and what they love about handball at the Buhl Club.
