Having received a one million dollar endowment to promote handball, Angelo State University (TX) continues to grow and develop their long established handball program. Texas A&M’s Martin Mulkerrins and Charlie Bokelman traveled to San Angelo where they teamed with Martin’s brother, Diarmuid and Aoife Holden to coach JR WPH clinics for beginner players on the second weekend in September.

More than twenty-five players took to the courts throughout the day to learn from the Mulkerrins brothers, Bokelman and Holden, soaking in tips and strategies in between playing matches with one another. These twenty-five players included students at the university, in addition to players and families who traveled from Lubbock, Odessa and Big Spring. To conclude the day, current national champion and R48 #2 Martin Mulkerrins played his brother and R48 #23 Diarmuid Mulkerrins in a one game exhibition.

“It was great to see such enthusiasm from the students and the local community last weekend,” stated Mulkerrins. “We also had a couple of junior players join us, who I look forward to seeing progress at the upcoming tournaments.”

Thank you to Martin and all of the coaches for helping to grow the game at Angelo State University.
