The Official Ball of the AUWP

The Original Ball Bag

In 1986 Joe Garcia co-authored with Murray Dubin to write "The Official Book of Wallyball" . We have reprinted the introduction to the book here, because we want the reader to actually feel the passion of the moment and the evolution of events that directly led to the sports creation. This time honored piece was cleverly written and truly captured the facts, and human emotions that led to the worldwide popularity of the sport we call "wallyball". In addition to the sports beginnings, the evolution of the portable wallyball court is a very significant part of the history and future of wallyball. Please visit the Portable Wallyball Court page and see photos and how the portable court will influence the development of wallyball. Wallyball, how it all began About the most famous thing in Calabasas, California is the pet cemetery. The animals buried include Hopalong Cassidy's horse; Rudolph Valentino's pet Doberman, the ring-eyed dog from the Our Gang Movies, and the pets of Henry Fonda, Alfred Hitchcock, and Humphrey Bogart. So Calabasas has more than its share of dead dogs and cats and ponies and gerbils in the ground and also has a man-made lake and some fancy houses, but not much else. Northwest of Los Angeles and not far from Malibu, Calabasas is hot in the summer and expensive all year round.

The Original Ball Bag

The backbone and success of any company or organization is its vision, leadership and management. When the AUWP was formed nearly three years ago, the original board of directors did a remarkable job of forming an organization from square one with no resources and nonprofit association experience. The association has grown and expanded its vision to where financial resources, strategic business relationships and internal management personnel have become the focus for the association to grow and prosper for years to come. This carefully chosen board has a vast array of business experience, financial acumen and a shared vision of the association’s strategy and how to assemble a winning team.
Joe Garcia – Chairman and Executive Director
Joe created the sport of wallyball and its rules in 1979 and spent the next 10 years promoting the sport throughout the United States. During that time, “Mr. Wallyball” (as he was affectionately nicknamed) contracted AMF Voit to manufacture the first wallyball, created the first net and hardware system for racquetball courts (which is still the standard for thousands of facilities worldwide) and in 1982 staged a year long, 36 city promotional tour in a motor-home which launched the sports popularity.

Wallyball was invented in Calabasas, CA, in the summer of 1979 by Joe Garcia. The sport was created to provide racquetball club owners with an alternative use for empty courts due to the decline in the popularity of racquetball. Wallyball seems to be most popular in the Midwest and East, where the weather drives people indoors looking for fun and exercise, although San Diego has one of the largest year round wallyball programs in the world. Probably the most famous wallyball players of all time were President George Bush, who gave up his horseshoes for wallyball during his presidency and his son President George W. Bush.

In October 1987, Guam received IOC recognition. The Guam Amateur Sports Federation merged with the newly created Guam National Olympic Committee to form a non-profit sports body that included almost 30 sports. In the 11 years since its formation, the GNOC has relied solely on private sector and Olympic Solidarity support. During the hosting of the XI South Pacific Games in May-June 1999, the Government of Guam provided logistical support, housing and transportation. The GNOC Executive Board, consisting of various members of the community has supported the goals of international sports competition and goodwill, development of athletes and community activities." 2002 ANNUAL REPORT Year at a Glance Micronesian Games
The Guam National Olympic Committee and its member federations participated in the 2002 Micronesian Games held in Pohnpei, FSM.

Team Handball General History
A lthough its popularity spans the globe, the Olympic sport of team handball is just emerging in the United States and often suffers an identity crisis. Most of the world calls the game "handball," but in the U.S. there is already another game with that name. Most Americans who hear of team handball envision participants on something like a racquetball court smacking a little black ball with their hands. This vision is not correct without a doubt, team handball is not off the wall. Team handball is a dynamic court game that is fun to play and exciting to watch. First-time spectators describe team handball as soccer with your hands, but they also notice elements that remind them of basketball, water polo and ice hockey. Participants and spectators alike enjoy the fast continuous play, the body contact and the goalie saves as both teams each of which are composed of 6 court players and a goalie use their natural athletic skills of running, jumping, throwing and catching. Team handball had its origins in Europe in the late 1920s, about the same time basketball was developing in the United States, and today enjoys great popularity throughout the world. The International Handball Federation (IHF) consists of 136 member nations and 12 million registered players. A men's handball competition was included on the Olympic calendar at the Munich Games in 1972, after a 34 year absence, followed by the inclusion of women's competition in the 1976 Games in Montreal. During this past quadrennial, the U.S. Women won the Pan American Games and finished 8th in the Olympic Games in Atlanta. The U.S. men finished 4th in the Pan American Games and a very respectable 9th versus an excellent field in Atlanta.

The evolution of these various racket sports lead inevitably to Racquetball in the 1950s. Joe Sobek invents racquetball in Greenwich, Connecticut.
He designs a ‘strung paddle racket,’ combines the rules of handball and squash
and calls his variation ‘paddle rackets.’ The sport gains a following among cross over handball enthusiasts.

HISTORY The game of racquetball evolved from other racket sports like French court tennis, Spanish Jai alai in the seventeenth century, Irish immigrants introduction of handball to the United States in the 1900s, English squash in the 1850, and the British game of Rackets played in the early 1800s. The evolutions of these various racket sport was inevitably racquetball in the 1950s. I n the early 1950s, Joe Sobek a squash and tennis pro from the Greenwich, Connecticut YMCA, began playi ng an early version of racquetball called paddle rackets. Sobek formulated a new gaming concept by developing a paddle racket with a string face rather than a wooden one to increased velocity and control. Sobek rules were drawn from squash, handball, and paddleball rules. In 1968, Larry Lederman organized the first National Paddle Rackets Tournament in Milwaukee.

This step was so significant in the history of minigolf the many sports such as Aikido, racquetball, Billiards and Skiing, which do not have olympic recognition Email Minigolf: From Summer Holidays to the Summer Olympics? By Introduction: For nearly 100 years Crazy Golf, Adventure Golf and Miniature Golf have been providing entertainment to millions of people all over the world, but it was in 1953 that Paul Bongni standardised the sport and patented the name "Minigolf" and thus set the wheels in motion for a sport that is currently: "The 9 th most popular 'leisure-time' sport activity of the Germans" - (World Minigolfsport Federation, Information Brochure, 2002, Page 1) Even though minigolf in its present form has been around for nearly 50 years, its worldwide profile is virtually non-existent despite the fact that there are an estimated 40,000 organised minigolfers worldwide and more than 15 million people play the game anually, in Germany alone (WMF Brochure, 2002). In Britain and Ireland in particular the game is viewed as merely a holiday past time, a state of affairs that Andy Miller summed up aptly in his book "Tilting at Windmills, How I Tried to Stop Worrying and Love Sport": "Crazy-golf courses are as much a part of the ailing British beach holiday as donkey rides and a bucket and spade“

The Sports and Recreation Center The Sports and Recreation Center complex is a dynamic facility providing many and varied types of activity areas used by University constituents and the general public. It play an important role in the "campus life experience" of our students. As the facilities are all multipurpose areas, it is adaptable for a multitude of activities. It is a focal point on campus for social and recreational activities. We are proud of our Sports and Recreation Center complex and its importance to the overall goals, mission, and vision of our university. Considered by many in the field to be one of the finest state-of-the-art multipurpose facilities in the Northwest, the concept for the Sports and Recreation Center (SRC) began as the vision of Dr. Jack Leighton. Dr. Leighton, as Eastern's Chair of Health, Physical Education, Recreation, and Athletics from 1953 to 1981, was the leader of a task force that developed the plan for the facilities. Department professors Bob Anderson, Peggy Gazette and Pete Hagelin, along with Wayne Loomis of Facilities Planning, rounded out the committee, which as a team, gathered information and shaped the ideas into the recreation and sports complex we have today.

The Harbor Court Hotel's rich and varied history started on August 21, 1926, when the building opened its doors as the Embarcadero Branch of the YMCA. Modeled after the Brooklyn Navy YMCA, the San Francisco building contained a gymnasium, salt-water swimming pool, restaurant, club and social rooms, all for a total cost of $925,000. A decade later, the Army and Navy began using the building for housing up until World War II, and by 1943, the Embarcadero Branch housed over 20 million enlisted men before they shipped out to sea. The YMCA continued the tradition, providing housing from the late 1930s until 1971.
It's hard to believe that when Kimpton Hotels bought the property in 1989, the building included 400 rooms with bunk beds and one shared bath per floor (the hotel now offers 131 guestrooms - all with private baths). It's also hard to believe the stunning difference a day makes: Three months after Kimpton Hotels bought the building, the Loma Prieta earthquake sent the elevated freeway behind the hotel tumbling. The resulting demolition and removal gave the hotel the best views of the Bay in the city.
Today, the YMCA facility is considered one of the best health facilities in the city, offering to locals and hotel guests alike an Olympic-sized swimming pool, racquetball and basketball courts, a full variety of classes, aerobic exercise machines and free weights, along with steam room, sauna and Jacuzzi. And the Harbor Court Hotel pays homage to its history by retaining the original architecture within its ceilings and its façade, while going forward into the future with the energy and style characteristic of San Francisco.

    Introduction Footnotes Bibliography 1. Military service as a way of life resembles no other. Hours of intense violent activity and extreme strain often followed by long periods of inactivity and boredom. The earliest commanders learned that these enemies to his combat capability could be best counteracted by recreational pursuits. The information contained in this presentation highlights the development of sports and athletic programs for the US soldiers from 1776 to the present. 2. Patrick Henry’s eloquent plea for liberty and the shots fired at Lexington and Concord marked the beginning of the war against Britain. The Revolutionary Soldier and Sailor was left mostly to his own devices in finding recreational activity. One of the earliest activities aimed at improving the moral of the troops during this time was the Fife and Drum Corps. It not only helped rally the citizens to arms and encouraged patriotism, but provided music for enjoyment and relaxation. 3. Up until 1895, canteen and recreational activities were provided by civilian groups called the traders store system. These groups essentially were cooperative institutions whose expenses were met entirely by contributions from enlisted men, without any assistance whatever from the government, except permission to occupy vacant buildings. The building was maintained entirely at the traders’ expenses.
