Dear Friends and Families:

Results - Fronton One-Wall Handball Open d'Italia 2007 - November 16-18th, 2007 - Nizza Monferrato, Italy  The USA team dominated as expected, but international players are now picking up the game and also playing at a competitive level. Many European countries participated in the event and after the pro level performance of the New York City players it is only a matter of time that the rest of the world will start picking up one-wall Handball.

The winners were Willie Polanco and Tony Roberts defeating PeeWee Castro and Joe Kaplan in the Finals. 3rd place winners were Victor LoPierre  and Steve Robalino defeating the Basque Team. Overall this International tournament was a huge success in the growth of our sport, so many thanks to all who were involved in coordinating  this event.

Article - The Patriot-News - Super heroes with a heart - Wednesday, November 07, 2007
Despite being diagnosed with carcinoid cancer a decade ago, I live an active life thanks to aggressive medical treatment. But my heart aches when I hear of the suffering of patients whose physicians fail to recommend proper treatment of this typically slow-growing, potentially fatal disease.

Yet, my heart was warmed by the extraordinary efforts of Kevin Gibson, David Botero and Ricardo Medina. They combined their love of the game of handball with a desire to increase awareness of carcinoid cancer, the disease that took the life of Kevin's wife Donna in June.

The men endured 26 hours of handball, set a Guinness World Record, drew attention to carcinoid cancer and raised funds to educate patients and physicians in Pennsylvania of the urgent need for early diagnosis, appropriately aggressive treatment and regular monitoring of the disease (news article, Oct. 19). Their efforts will save lives.

Learn about carcinoid cancer and the game of handball at HOPEinHANDBALL.org to help achieve their goal. If our society defines men as heroes for their athletic achievements, then these guys are truly super heroes with a heart.

             “Handball” is a play set on a Bronx Handball Court about elderly men hanging on to the only joy that keeps these irascible players together – the game of handball.    Politically incorrect, stubborn, proud, and pugnacious, these cantankerous curmudgeons unite to take on a Bronx handballer’s ultimate foe – a Brooklyn player, challenging them on their park for the title of King of the Courts and the admiration of a long ago lover.      But a wife is set on breaking up the game, and the players’ health may be the death of them if the match takes place.     “Handball” is a play about the child in every old person, and the need to continue life one more day.

Press Release – April 21st, 2007

The HandballCity.me.com members website will now be called SmackitSports.com. The transformation will take place at any time now. Please make note of the website address change so you will still have access to your accounts. There will still be a pop up page on the main HandballCity.com website with a log on screen.

Jimmy Russo of Handball City will no longer be involved as the administrator/owner of this Handball social network…but will act as a consultant during the transition. The new owner of this social network/community that you are a member of is Angel Vega of “Smack it Sports”. www.smackitsports.com

This should be very positive as far as expanding this network and bringing new fans/players to the sport of Handball. The name “Smack it Sports” can cater to a larger market…Handball, Paddleball, Racquetball, Squash, Tennis, and Ping Pong.

“Smack it Sports” will look to make an impact as far as making vital connections with top players of several sports and to help promote the sport of Handball. “Smack it Sports” will also start selling high quality Handball Gloves and other gear. More info will be coming soon about this new venture.

Handball City will continue to look for other opportunities and ways to promote the sport of Handball in the future. The original HandballCity.com website will still be the Official home of the Sport of One-Wall Handball and will continue to bring breaking news as soon as we get it.

Thanks for the support,
Jimmy @ HandballCity.com

Results - Kohl Park Open Singles - September 23rd, 2006 - Harrisburg, PA  The summer days were winding down, but the on-court intensity was just starting to heat up. Kohl Park hosted the 1st annual Kohl Park Open, and all of the area’s usual suspects showed-up, including some surprising new-comers. The tournament ignited a new-found energy in our local players, and established a resounding effort that the true spirit and culture of handball breathes life into our players. My people, Harrisburg Handball has officially been resuscitated! A mild 80-degree Saturday gave way to an all-day, double-elimination tournament. Old School rap joints and classic Salsa ballads graced our ears, while killers & rollers tagged the walls. The tournament proved to be the most competitive and most electrifying event to hit these courts in a long time. Angel Rosa was determined to make a statement at this tournament, and claim his position as the area’s undisputedly best player. Peter Krische was out for blood, and—at only 17—was focused on being the area’s youngest, and most riveting player to bomb the box. Throughout the competition, both were merciless and unrelenting to their opponents. Angel was a true warrior as he battled each match with either come-from-behind victories, or with resilient tie-breaking plays to crown him the victor. Peter crushed his opponents with his smart and savvy strikes, as well as with his impeccably-positioned corner shots. Angel reached the Finals round undefeated, while Peter shook off his one loss and brawled to peak out of the loser’s bracket; eventually meeting Angel for a highly-anticipated Finals championship face-off. A “best-of-three”  match-up was underway, and both clashed fearlessly as they pounded the pavement and punished the wall with every bit of gas they had. Match one revealed a steadfast Angel Rosa that was committed to keeping his untouched game on check. Angel took the first game, 16-8. Peter, reluctant to go home early, pulled together and put on a show with an arsenal of an attack to destabilize his undefeated rival. Peter didn’t let-up and won the second match, 16-10. The final, winner-take-all, bout proved to be the most brutal of the entire competition. With everything on the line, both players were highly unyielding in their pursuit to be crowned this year’s inaugural Kohl Park champ. Peter’s youth and vigor ranked exceedingly well against Angel’s superior skill and strength. However, after numerous hard-pressed volleys and point-lead exchanges, it was Angel’s motivated thirst that prevailed in this 21-point championship game. A 21-16 win sealed the tournament, and Angel Rosa persevered to be this year’s Kohl Park Singles Tournament champ! Congratulations to Angel for his well-deserved and hard-earned win; and a praiseworthy applause to Peter Krische for his very respectable and strenuous effort. Both gentlemen exemplified the valiant measures and true sportsmanship of a genuine winner. A very special Thanks to everyone who participated, most especially for their personal involvement and support of this event. The tournament produced some fresh talent and some new faces to the courts, and we look forward to continue growing the sport in this area. The spirit, culture, and energy of Harrisburg Handball is very much alive and well. Thanks again to all of the players, their families, spectators, and volunteers for helping make this such a fun and successful run.    Information provided by David Botero

Results - OOHA Geezer Tournament - October 3rd, 2006 - 88th St./Atlantic Ave., Queens, NY It turned out to be a success. A Tuesday tournament like Izzy's Thursday tour to benefit the older players over 47 and who can't get to play in the weekend tournaments due to work. We started at 8 teams and 8 more showed but we all decided to forget the extra money and let's get a real winner. The youngest team won, which included a 33 yr old Rick "Wildman" Montalvo and Anthony who is 37. Jeff (58) teamed up with Peewee but lost in the semis 21-19 to Wildman. Jaime teamed up with Randy (52) and lost to Wildman also 21-17 which left me (Tyrone Snell) and John (48) the only qualified geezer team to do it, but came up short 21-18 in the darkness...which also may have contributed. Bob (48) and Henry Santiago also participated. The players seem to want more of this type of event as it was a new fun venture for handball. info provided by Tyrone Snell - President of OOHA

Results - Annual Lakewood Park Handball tournament Singles & Doubles - August 5th-6th, 2006 - Lakewood Park, Waterbury, CT The 2006 Lakewood Park Handball tournament proved to be a success once again with players coming into town from areas such as NYC, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and CT. The weather was perfect for a weekend of great matches. Defending champion Lefty Henry defended his singles title, and shared the doubles crown with his partner Snuka. CT players faired really well against some of the top players from the area. But the question remained..........can, or will anyone dare to come out here and try to take away the title from Henry? He thinks many are scared, and don't want to take the ride out here just to be beaten. I'm a believer when I see his style of play, and accuracy. We'll see next year if anyone is up to the challenge.
