Joe SobekThe USA Racquetball Grand Gala Hall of Fame 35th Anniversary Celebration Banquet and Awards Ceremony was a night to remember for all in attendance. The banquet was held at the Hyatt Hotel in Houston, TX.
The sport's living legends also spoke briefly about their love for racquetball, including Hall of Fame member Dr. Bud Muehleisen who is called the most influential man in racquetball. "All these people being recognized tonight are all good competitors, but the real reason they are in the Hall of Fame is because they gave back to the sport," said Muehleisen. After numerous standing ovations throughout the evening, the ceremony ended with a barrage of flash bulbs capturing the special moment on the sport's grandest and oldest stage.
