john minners Jon Minners was born in the Bronx. Back in the day, he didn’t have much and so he took on two sports, where all you needed was a ball and a dream – basketball and handball. Jon loved the teamwork of basketball, but couldn’t get enough of the fast-paced game of handball, where you had to rely on your own speed, determination, hand strength, strategy and a well placed cut or kill to win the game. Finding Wall Ball was a dream come true.4
