Women's Committee

The Women's Committee mission is to 'strengthen USA Racquetball through increasing the number of women playing racquetball at the state, regional and national levels.' Throughout the year, the Committee analyzes key aspects of racquetball for women, develops strategies to increase participation, plans and promotes activities and functions for women, supports charitable causes like Racquet for the Cure, and provides an avenue for women to express their concerns to USA Racquetball.

"Somewhere behind the athlete you've become, the hours of practice, the coaches who push you, and the fans who cheer you, is the little girl who fell in love with the sport and never looked back. Play for her." -- Unknown
