Note from EPHPA President Tom Reuther:
Due to state wide restrictions and national guidelines, I feel it necessary to cancel the events scheduled for April 30. Tentative date for the General EPHPA Membership meeting in
Carlisle will be Sunday, June 7. Meeting starts at 10:00 am, followed by the doubles tournament at noon.
Considering all the unknowns surrounding the current pandemic, I feel it would be prudent for all tournament directors to monitor the availability of their respective courts, especially
those tournaments scheduled in May. I have recently checked on the courts in Selinsgrove and found that the Park is currently closed with no date established for opening.
Minutes posted for the EPHPA Director's Meeting for 2020 Season (Nov 9, 2019)
The St. Patrick Day tournament (3/14/2020) at Selinsgrove was cancelled
The indoor courts are at a state-owned facility in Selinsgrove, and due to Coronavirus concerns, all activities were suspended.
Sorry for the inconvenience if you were not contacted; the Tournament Director did not find out until late evening on 3/13/2020
Thank you to Robert Taylor, Kentucky Horseshoe Historian
Robert found a newspaper article describing the 1930 PA State Tournament.
We were able to add E.R. Fazenbaker from Northern Fayette County as the 1930 Men's Champion in our State records.
