President’s Message April 2017

NM Rball…..serving all of NM, So. Colorado, and W. Texas since 1977

I am currently in Costa Rica for the 30th Pan Am Championships of Racquetball.  The Club Indoor is the same facility which hosted this event back in 1989.  It is a country club without golf, and is blessed with 6 Racquetball courts, indoor & outdoor tennis courts and pools, weight & cardiovascular rooms, bowling, billiards, full service restaurants &  cafes,
gymnasium, large locker rooms, and more!  Most impressive is the energy in all departments.

From a court sport perspective, there is a dominant theme of programming, efforts, especially for youth.  This stance needs a resurgence in order that we sustain a legacy and remove the  mindset for transitioning courts.  Costa Rica has a top tier Racquetball program, which includes active junior development as well as senior & master programs.  Many players have participated in our IRF World Seniors event and hopefully we will see some `Ticos` in Albuquerque in late August.
