Ektelon National Singles Racquetball Championships presented by Penn
May 15-19, 2013
Meridian Sports Club--Fullerton, CA
The 2013 Ektelon National Singles Racquetball Championships presented by Penn combined the largest singles amateur event with the Men's IRT and the Women's LPRT along with 70 amateur divisions for a spectacular tournament. We were excited to return to Fullerton, California for the "The Ektelon Nationals" at the Meridian Sports Club. This event promised once again, to be the most exciting event ever under one roof and is the only national championship for singles competition in open, skill, age group divisions including Military divisions as well.
The Ektelon Nationals is proud to announce the Military Racquetball Federation, (MRF) Racquetball Rehabilitation Clinics as its designated charity. Amateurs also had the opportunity to play in a doubles challenge with top professional players as their partners. All proceeds were donated to MRF Racquetball Rehabilitation Clinics.
On top of a full week’s worth of play in the largest event in racquetball, players also enjoyed special activities all week long.
In addition, the Men's and Women's US National Team Qualifier divisions were also played with one year appointments to the US National Team up for grabs. Marco Rojas def. David Horn in the men's final, 15-5, 15-6. Rhonda Rajsich def. Janel Tisinger in the women's final, 15-12, 15-7.
