World Outdoor Racquetball is excited to announce Carrie Hoeft as Mid Atlantic WOR Director. Hoeft from Chesapeake, Virginia will join WOR immediately and lead one of the fastest growing outdoor markets in the country.

Carrie started playing racquetball about 11 years ago at the local YMCA and quickly became involved in tournament play, leagues, and attending national events. In 2015 she was introduced to outdoor racquetball while attending Beach Bash with a friend. Since then she has regularly attended WOR events while promoting outdoor growth in Virginia. "I love the outdoor community and am excited to be a part of the growth in the mid-Atlantic region. We have some beautiful facilities and I'm thankful to have such a strong support system in place and for Tony Gambone and Ruben Gutierrez laying the groundwork in our area. It's amazing to see how outdoor racquetball in this region has grown within the last year and I';m looking forward to continued growth and development."

Greg Lewrenez, WOR National Director commented, "We are very excited to have Carrie step up and accept a leadership role with WOR in this key market. The Mid-Atlantic region is one of the fastest growing markets with several pristine facilities that include each type of outdoor court - One wall, short wall, and long wall. Carrie will bring a high level of enthusiasm, professionalism, dedication, and years of experience in athletic organization to the role. Carrie will be able to leverage her unique blend of talent on the court, and respect within both the indoor and outdoor racquetball community to bring new players outside to play outdoor racquetball. Carrie is the first female WOR Director, and we are looking forward to the positive impact she will have on the sport in the Mid-Atlantic Region."

Hank Marcus, WOR Executive Director added, "Carrie is a leader throughout the racquetball community as a player, tournament director, and promoter. Her enthusiasm brings all everyone together and represents all the qualities that make outdoor so fun for all levels of player. "
