Ike started playing racquetball in 1962 at the Jewish Community Center in Louisville.

Ike was instrumental in establishing the Kentucky Racquetball Association and served as a board member of the IRA. His lifelong doubles partner, Irv Zeitman, also of Louisville, passed away in 1992. Ike was known for his gentlemanly conduct and good sportsmanship and was one of the forerunners of the two wall pinch shot.
