TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) – There are 10 handball courts at the Randolph Recreation Center, but only five of them are in suitable condition for game action.
The World Players of Handball Foundation is in charge of making changes to those other five courts. The group says the courts are underutilized and in need of upgrades.
Necessary upgrades include new flooring, fencing, lighting, an area for bleachers and a picnic area.
“Randolph’s 3-Wall park is going to create opportunities for thousands of young people in central Tucson to learn and play handball,” boasted WPH Development Director David Fink to KOLD’s news reporter Kevin Adger in one of the three live segments on KOLD’s morning news. “We believe this park will be one of the most impactful initiative in Tucson handball history, playing host to junior clinics, junior handball teams, and mega 3 – Wall tournaments–All open to the general public!”“When we saw the press release for the new courts we had to come down and check it all out,” stated Adger, who donned pro handball gloves and played the game for the first time in the second live segment w/Dave Fink. “We are looking forward to coming back upon the completion of the project and following-up on the progress. This project is really exciting for midtown Tucson and those that visit us.”
WPH would like to use the courts for youth development and to get adults involved in the game. The upgrades will also provide WPH with the space needed for handball tournaments.
The plan is for the work to begin on the project sometime around Labor Day and then have things completed by November.
