USA Racquetball News Winners Announced!

Winners Announced!

By Terry Rogers, USAR Membership Committee Chair | Feb. 16, 2021, 12 p.m. (ET)

The results are in, and the lucky winners were announced on the Real Racquetball Show on February 15! 

Fifty-six members of our racquetball family were the recipients of USA Racquetball’s RACQ_ETBALL is Missing U! membership initiative giveaways. The winners will receive a follow-up congratulatory email the week of February 15 with the specifics of what they won. The USAR Membership Committee* appreciates everyone who was already a current member as well as those who renewed to be a part of this initiative and support USA Racquetball.

Glenn Martineau

Glenn Martineau (Texas) was the Grand Prize winner of the Malibu racquetball trip. When Glenn was contacted, he commented, “What a pleasant surprise! Being a Lifetime Member for about 11 years now, I wasn’t expecting to be part of USAR’s promotional drawing. When I received the call describing what I won, I had to laugh because Rick Betts had offered to have me come to Malibu about three years ago. With the California wildfires, and more recently the pandemic, I hadn’t been able to take advantage of the invitation. Now I have no excuse! Thanks to USAR for all they do, and thanks to all the members who support our great sport. And, of course, thanks to Rick Betts and Cindy Tilbury for their generous donation!”

The Membership Committee offers our heartfelt thanks to everyone who stepped up to make this giveaway so very special to our members. Thanks to Rick Betts and Cindy Tilbury for the grand prize; manufacturers Gearbox, Head Penn. ProKennex, RacquetWorld, and Rollout for their product support; several board members––Todd Boss, Steve Czarnecki, Cheryl Kirk, and Terry Rogers for their gift card donations; our partner organizations, the IRT, LPRT, NMRA, and WSMRA as well as WOR and 3WallBall for product and tournament entries; and a US OPEN entry and a spot in the US OPEN ProAm Doubles from USA Racquetball and Doug Ganim. Last but certainly not least, thanks to Daniel and Michelle De La Rosa, Rhonda Rajsich, and Kelani Lawrence for their donation of time and/or merchandise to chat with our winners about their games and Racquetball in general.

Note: Why did Rhonda donate 23 Zoom calls? It’s her basketball number!
