Beach-goers hitting a bald tennis ball against the sides of wooden jetties back in the 1930s inspired the New York Parks Department to build community handball courts in city parks says the U.S. Wall Ball Association. Today, the game has gone pro- known as Wall Ball, it is played at athletic centers across the country. Dmitry Druzhinsky, co-founder of MatchPoint NYC, Brooklyn’s premier health and fitness complex, recently hosted politicians for the Pro Wall Ball Tournament.
