The STV Handball-Racquetball section
(HBRB) has adopted the moniker, 'Die Holzkiste'
or "The Wooden Box." Built in 1925 and used continually
by club members our wooden-plank courts are unique in this
modern age of cement and pressed board construction, bringing
forth the image of a "wooden box" when opponents visit and
offering a place to perpetuate the athletic and competitive
activities that have been principles of the STV for over
The HBRB holds regular open-court, walk-on
play year round. Racquetball is played on Mondays and Wednesdays
and handball on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Play usually runs
between 4:30 and 6:30pm, with all levels welcome.
Our section currently competes in the
'B' Division of the Sacramento Area Handball Association
(SAHA). League matches run from October through January.
The STV HBRB fields four teams for each match: 2 singles,
and 2 doubles teams. Other League teams include Gold River,
Capital Athletic Club, Alhambra Athletic Club, Carmichael
Athletic Club, The Elks Club and others. For the current
of matches, visit the SAHA
website. Matches usually start at 6pm and continue through
7:30pm, so come out visit us and support our handball players
as they play for glory of the STV.
