How long have you been playing racquetball?
I began playing racquetball back in 1981. I was a new mom and my husband saw how devoted I was to my sons and suggested as a break I should get out and try racquetball. From a recreational player, I became league coordinator and over time became a certified racquetball instructor. Most recently I became RMC for Head racquetball.
What is your #1 contribution back to the sport?
The contribution I am most proud of is introducing people to this wonderful game that has so many positive attributes--from the thrill of a very competitive sport, to the social aspect that allows for new friendships to be born and nourished, to the overall fitness way-of-life. I get a thrill hearing from someone I introduced to racquetball how racquetball has impacted their life!
Why is being an Ambassador to the sport important to you?
Racquetball has been a huge part of my life in many ways. And just as I've derived many benefits from the work and contributions of others I want to continue returning the favor and giving back to the sport I love. Being a Racquetball Ambassador would be a great way for me to contribute and help this great way-of-life grow.
Information About the USA Racquetball Ambassador Program
USA Racquetball has created an Ambassador Program targeted toward developing relationships with players in health clubs, fitness centers, schools and universities. The goal is to provide an avenue for passing information from USA Racquetball to the general racquetball public. An Ambassador is usually someone who is at the club 3-4 times per week and does not mind talking with people about the game of racquetball.
