Handball player for life.

USHA National Three-Wall Championships – Tyree Bastidas wins 3-wall singles title –solidify status as the youngest and most complete player in America.

 

 

 

 

The youngest player to ever win the USHA National 1-wall title at the Coney Island handball courts has also become the youngest New Yorker to capture the USHA national 3-wall singles title in Ohio.

With those wins, Bastidas solidify his status as the best, youngest, and most versatile player in the history of the game. Sure we have players from other handball versions with outstanding records, but those records are limited to the handball version the players limited themselves to play in.

The big ball championships took place in the heart of Brooklyn (St. John’s Park) where the best big ball players decided to have it out during a sunny weekend in the spring.

Men, women and juniors traveled to the tourney from as far as England and as close as Canada to play and watch the competitive games.

The 1-wall Committee did a great job running this tournament.

Upset: Team Johnny Velez and Eddie Fontanet defeated No 2 seeded team Gio Vazquez and Joshua Garcia in the first round.

Foreign countries: England, Canada and Ecuador sent national players to compete.

Milestone: Danielle Skalakis, a small ball player won the women’s singles division.

New Record: Timothy Gonzalez slammed for the second consecutive year.

Junior Highlights: The girl’s 13-and-under division had the best players ever seen in recent memory.

USHA National Three-Wall Championships – Tyree vs Emmett – point of view from a handball fan at the bleaches.

 

 

 

 

It’s worth to point out the opinion in this article is not necessary shared by Tyree’s camp. We only post it for general information.

“The best thing that happened to Tyree was to get hurt. Ever since he got hurt his game changed completely. Because he couldn’t moved or run as fast as he usually does, he started playing smart. He moved around the center of the courts to hit the ball using his head more than his hands. He was just hitting the ball to the ceiling and keeping Emmett away from the front to keep him in the back as far as possible”

“Emmett got so frustrated playing behind the long line that he started shooting unsuccessfully from the back. Perhaps Emmett’s tomahawk shots would have worked if Emmett wouldn’t be so tired”

The Handball World is changing – Part 9 – can the USHA, SkyBounce, ACE-1 and Ektelon get along and succeed in the big apple?

 

 

 

 

New York is usually considered the melting pot of players from different countries. It has more handball courts than any other state and is the second largest state in terms of USHA membership.

We believe there is a lot of opportunities to grow the buy and sell of handballs in New York. There is plenty of room to grow for every company selling balls in the state. That’s why we believe no matter how many companies are selling handballs out there, they could all be profitable down the road if promoted properly.

New York is the first state to deliver its own balls to its own players. All companies mentioned above have a great opportunity to get along and succeed in the big Apple just like any other business.

It’s worth to point out the opinion in this article is not necessary shared by Tyree’s camp. We only post it for general information.

We got to meet Emmett’s girlfriend for the first time at the 4-wall nationals in Iowa. She is Emmett’s number one fan and is always supporting him from behind the courts. She also keeps track of the score throughout the entire match through her smart phone.

As the tiebreaker unfolded and Tyree kept Emmett running around to wear him down, she points at Tyree and tells Bob (Tyree's friend ) sitting next to her. “Doesn’t that guy ever get tired?
