Tucson, AZ, WPH Press, 11/16/19- The Tucson handball community and handball friends and families from the Southwest played the first tournament on the refurbished 3-Wall paradise, as players teamed up in a special doubles kickoff tournament. Players are guests were treated to endless food and BBQ, courtesy of the Tucson Handball Community and the WPH.
12 doubles teams were matched by placing the best players with weakest, making for some very fun combinations. R48 #5 David Fink teamed with 70-year-old Kenny Hartnett and cruised to the final in the upper bracket, with three-time 3WallBall World Champion Shorty Ruiz partnered with Jim Calle to meet Team Fink/Hartzell in the final.
Buddy Key and Matt “Snakeman” Goode erased the disappointment of a first round loss to win the playoffs.
Doug Clark Park Named
The six-hour doubles tournament did not satisfy the handball-crazed Doug Clark Park fans, as Fink and Ruiz were sent out for a winner-take-all one game to 15 singles match – the first singles match in Clark Park history. Fink overcame his good friend in the one game match, relying on his serve to keep Ruiz off-balance. “There will be so many more great days like this one at the Clark Courts,” boasted Clark Park “Legacy Donor” Steve Hamrick.
