Play has begun on the two 3 wall courts in San Antonio. A product of the hard work of Jim Garner and the San Antonio handball group. These courts were modeled after the KCAC design. Congrats to our friends in the south and we’ll have to make a roady down there this summer to test-drive them firsthand. Getting ready to go on the right court are two KCAC champs Chip Morales and Allan Garner. Great job guys and we can’t wait to see them.
League Schedule, Standings, and Statistics have been updated. I have moved the schedule back two weeks due to Valentines day and the snow closing. Now week 13 is scheduled to occur this Thursday, February 28th. The last two regular season weeks will follow on 3/7 and 3/14. Finally the 3 postseason dates are 3/21, then 3/28 and the finals and banquet will be 3/30. Please comment below or click on the Contact button above if you have any concerns with these dates.
The Show-Me State Games will have handball this summer. It is scheduled for Saturday, July 20th at Wilson’s Fitness Center in Columbia. More information can be found here.
The 65th Tallcorn tournament will be held May 3-5 at the Riverfront YMCA in Des Moines, IA. This is a fun tournament and a great opportunity to catch up with our Iowa handball friends. Hope to see you up there.
ACOP: Please enjoy this post on the history of handball on the newly updated and very slick Athletic Club of OP website. While you’re there, check out the rest of the site, very well done. www.athleticclubop.com

This Thursday is Mixer night with the bar tab. All league members are encouraged to play and mingle with each other this week as we are pairing up new players with top players, and young bucks with old balls. To help with the entertainment we are having an open bar tab to make the night more enjoyable. If you have paid your captain your league dues, then please join us at the bar after your match for a couple beers on the house.
There is no scheduled league this week due to Missouri State doubles, but there is a large group of people that are wanting to play. If you would like us to (kind of) coordinate a match for you, please email your captain or myself, or just click on the contact us button above and let me know. We’ll try to put everyone together and make a night out of it.
League standings and statistics have been updated as of week 9. We only have 6 more league weeks to play before the postseason, and the race is tightening up. It’s also time to start looking at the Statistics page. You can start to get an idea who the leaders of the pack are for individual success in the league. In the next month or so as we get closer, I will break out a few more statistics too. Showing how well people do against their own class, or how well they do when they play above, at, or below their rating.
Lou has informed me that the courts are being resurfaced Tuesday, January 15th. He says it will not impact league play as the courts will be available Wednesday the following night.
We will resume league this Thursday in it’s normal format. The schedule has been updated. We moved the snowed out week to this week, but it’s going to be the usual format. The mixer night has been moved back to the Thursday after St. Louis doubles. We’ll do the bar tab and pizza that night as well.
as you were.
