The Johnny Ray Memorial

Pro Wall Ball Tournament IV

In the time honored tradition of a good, old fashioned throw down, Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams and Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. will face off on the handball court as the Team Captains for their respective boroughs during the 2015 Johnny Ray Memorial Pro Wall Ball Tournament.

The event brings together dozens of New York’s political elite, business and media professionals, local celebrities and fans, to witness the fourth annual fast-paced winner-take-all match between long-time rivals Team Brooklyn and Team Bronx and newcomers Team Philly vs Team Long Island. At stake are bragging rights and the ‘Johnny Ray Cup’ – currently held by Brooklyn Borough President Adams.

Admission is open to the public; corporate and private donations are encouraged. Sponsors and donors please e-mail: All donations will directly offset event costs as well as benefit the U.S. Wall Ball Association’s year-long education, anti-violence and anti-obesity initiatives. U.S. WALL BALL ASSOCIATION is a 501(c)(3) non-profit national charity based in New York City, committed to helping its mission; inspiring safer and healthier lifestyles for children in under served communities, while promoting Wall Ball’s move into the Olympic Games.
