Colorado Handball Hall Of Fame: Terry Nett (2003)

Terry Nett

When he hit his first handball at age 24, Terry Nett had more important priorities than winning tournaments.  His professional and family life came first.  This dedication is an integral part of the man and his handball game. 
 
Since his 40th birthday in 1986, Nett has demonstrated how accomplished and gifted a player he is.  Terry has won a total of 9 Masters and Golden Masters State Titles in both singles and doubles, and finished 2nd in 5 more.  His national tournament record boasts 4 singles wins, including the USHA 55 plus Masters Singles Title in 2001.  For nearly 20 years he has been a vital part of the lifeblood of Colorado Handball.
 
Players such as Mike Hulbert, Steve Bauer, Mike Hallowell, Louie Marquez, and Dennis Doherty can attest to his two handed attack, amazing patience, and error-free play.  Heywood Sawyer, Bob Johnston, Wally Livingston, Hulbert, and Doherty have coveted him as a doubles partner.
 
A complete player, Terry has also given back to the game, assisting in organiing the Fort Collins Handball Club, and has tutored many young players, including his son, Randy, assisting them to achieve handball prowess.
