Tucson, AZ, January 25th, 2010- Legendary handball player Pat Kirby stops into the WPH headquarters (seen on the far left next to WPH board member Fred Banfield) on Monday to purchase new Owen Gloves and Ektelon Handballs from the WPH webstore (http://www.thehandballstore.com) before heading off to Ireland next week. Kirby, highly regarded as one of the best players of our time, laments about the greats of the game, the old pro tour, today's best and his love of handball. "Jimmy Jacobs was the greatest player I ever faced." Claims Kirby after endless probing on the subject from WPH Exec Director, Dave Vincent. "Dave Chapman and Paul Brady have the best mindset."
Kirby lives in Tucson, AZ and still thinks of handball and the good ole days regularly. Kirby was the pioneer in making the transition from 60x30 handball to the 40x20 game of today.
DV: Can I take a picture of you for the website? I promise not to sell it.
Kirby: This picture and $4.00 wouldn't even buy you a cup of coffee at Starbucks!
