[30179750_1534115146243905_r-300x200]Detroit, MI, WPH Press, 9/26/18- Detroit’s historic Palmer Park Courts were home to the USHA Three Wall Nationals for two decades and are now being restored to their former glory by a group of passionate Detroit handball players, with the aim of hosting junior handball clinics and programs at the historic venue, as well as open play for Motor City 3-Wall enthusiasts.

The Detroit handball community will setup a booth to introduce the game to new players on September 29, followed by a junior handball clinic on October 6, all part of the Detroit outdoor handball rejuvenation.

By tuck-pointing and painting the walls, resurfacing the floors, and much more, the courts have been brought back to life, with people having played there a number of times already.”

If you’re in the Detroit area, stop by Palmer Park Courts on September 29 and October 6 for the junior handball initiatives and make the Palmer Park Courts your home for outdoor handball!
