JUNEAU - John Bike Jr., the fourth-ranked professional handball player in the world, will be visiting Juneau this weekend to offer a handball exhibition and clinic.

The workshop, which is free and open to the public, will be held at the JRC/The Alaska Club Valley location at 9 a.m. on Sunday.

Bike, of Hesperia, Calif., has played in more than 280 tournaments and conducted more than 400 clinics and exhibitions in the last 14 years. He is a veteran on the Simple Green/USHA Pro Tour, and remains a crowd favorite.

Sunday's clinic comes after 16 handball players, including Bike, competed in a professional tournament in Anchorage on Thursday in association with the Fur Rendezvous festivities.
