TACOMA, Wash. — Gordy Pfeifer was officially inducted as a Player in the USHA Handball Hall of Fame on Saturday night at the Tacoma Elks Lodge #174. The Tacoma Elks Handball group organized an incredible induction ceremony and reception for him. Many of Pfeifer’s family, friends, and former handball competitors were in attendance to celebrate Pfeifer and his decorated handball career.
In his short acceptance speech, Pfeifer thanked his competitors, his family and credited his faith for his handball achievements. Pfeifer has a court in his house, and still plays the “Perfect Game” today at 85 years young!
A big “thank you” to ceremony emcee Rob Nichols and program director/organizer Gil Mendoza. Without their work, this special night doesn’t take shape. A “special thank you” goes to Sandy Mendoza, who provided delicious cookies, a special addition to the outstanding banquet.
