2009 World Handball Championships

Fiona Shannon defeated clubmate Aisling Reilly for the women's title

PORTLAND, Ore. - The 2009 Waterford Crystal World Handball Championships wrapped up on Sunday. The event was a great success!! A BIG thanks goes out to the Worlds Committee, the sponsors and all the amazing volunteers and hard workers that made this event possible.

Fiona Shannon defeated clubmate Aisling Reilly for the women's title.  Team USA won both Men's and Women's Fed Cup competitions, led by Rookie Wright on the men's team and Karen McConney for the women.  Puerto Rico finished second in both.

It was a great week of handball in Portland, thanks to Chatten Hayes, Jay Maxwell, Tom Hussey and a cast of nearly a thousand players.

  In a courageous show of grit and desire, Paul Brady won his third consecutive Men's Open World Title over Allan Garner, 21-14, (18-21), 11-7.  Garner made sure Brady earned every point, pushing his opponent to the limit before hitting his last shot short for match point.  The Multnomah gallery, packed in every inch around the court, applauded the two players as they received their Waterford Crystal trophies. 

Many singles finals were played on saturday and continued through late afternoon.  See Draws & Results by Clicking HERE

With over 980 players, this is the largest, most amazing event ever. For more information on the event Click Here to check out the official tournament website.

Let It Rock!

Emmett "Rock" Peixoto won his second Men's Open Singles title with a huge win over David Chapman.  Peixoto and Chapman later lost the Men's Open Doubles by injury forfeit to Sean Lenning and Luis Moreno.

MAUMEE, Ohio - With rolling thunder clouds approaching, Emmett Peixoto and David Chapman battled shot-for-shot for three fierce games.  Emmett Peixoto played clutch handball down the stretch to defeat Chapman, (8-21), 21-15, 11-9 for the title. 

Megan Mehilos won her fifth consecutive Women's Open title defeating Tracy Davis in two games, 21-13, 21-16.

All matches were completed with the exception of the Open doubles final.  Game one was won by Sean Lenning and Luis Moreno over the tired Open singles finalists, Dave Chapman and Emmett Peixoto.  During the rain delay, Chapman and Peixoto defaulted as Chapman said: "I feel awful and can't play anymore."

Had play continued, the match would have been moved to the backup facility at the Bowling Green State University Recreation Center since the rain did not let up.

USHA White Paper Press Release




Dear Members:

A few years ago, The World Pro Handball (WPH) association was formed to promote professional handball. The USHA and WPH have met on several occasions to further the common goal of growing the “perfect game,” through webcasts and tournament promotions. After meeting with Dave Vincent at the January 2009 board meeting, a Memo of Understanding was developed for several joint efforts.

However, many of you will recall the USHA Board’s concern and disappointment when the WPH announced it would schedule collegiate and junior events during the same time periods as our longstanding USHA National events. That led to the dissolution of the Memo of Understanding to which the USHA and the World Pro Handball association had agreed.

Since that parting of the ways, there have been negative, misinformed postings on the WPH website’s message board about the USHA’s role and position on some important subjects related to handball.

The USHA Board has put together a number of responses to some of the mis-information that has been posted. As always, any questions you have for the national office and/or Board, whether or not they are addressed here, can and will be answered if you would like to call or write at any time.

Finally, the USHA board has just voted to try to open a line of communication with the WPH board to try to alleviate the scheduling conflicts that are looming with the junior and collegiate events and explore other opportunities for growing the game.
