||Chuck Leve | Northbrook, Illinois
(Contributor, Inducted 1997)
An integral part of racquetball since 1969, Leve was the Executive Secretary of the International Racquetball Association (IRA) in ‘70. After following IRA President Robert Kendler, in 1973, to the newly formed National Racquetball Club (NRC), Leve privately felt that the amateur players had been left out. In 1976, he formed the United States Racquetball Association to service those players outside the professional ranks. In 1979, Leve joined the National Court Club Association, now known as the International Health, Racquet & Sportsclub Association (IHRSA). Now the Director of Sales and Promotions for IHRSA, Leve continues to lend his support to the sport of racquetball.
