Palmer Park Handball Courts
Commissioned in 1950, Palmer Park's historic Handball Courts have hosted many national handball championships and racquetball matches including the U.S. Handball Association National Three-Wall Championship from 1950-1972.
A group of area handball enthusiasts, many of whom had played here, have been working with great determination to restore the historic courts and they are now ready for play thanks to these efforts. Funds were raised for painting, tuck-pointing, sports fence, court surface refinishing, and area beautification and People for Palmer Park and the City of Detroit lent their support.
The refurbished facility, reopened officially in October 2018, will now allow not only great play, but will also provide a place for current handball and racquetball players to "play the game forward." Workshops for young Detroiters will introduce them to a game that builds skills and character.
