WOR - USAR Press Release

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
USA Racquetball President Dan Whitley said, "We welcome WOR and all of its outdoor players to the USA Racquetball family. By offering both indoor and outdoor programs, USA Racquetball now has a larger net to cast in bringing new players into the sport. I work in an indoor racquetball environment, but my kids have learned how to play racquetball at the outdoor courts in the park near my home. The outdoor game provides access and opportunity to introduce racquetball to many more new players."
WOR Executive Director Hank Marcus commented, "This move positions WOR and Outdoor for future growth and stability. I have spent many years working with Dan Whitley on high school events, and I am excited and confident in what he and USAR bring to Outdoor. We are all interested in the same goals: growing the outdoor game, providing continuing service to our members, and introducing outdoor racquetball to new players."
Greg Lewerenz, WOR National Director, added, "I am excited about this step forward for outdoor racquetball and for the growth and stability of the game. This brings together two groups of players with the single-minded focus of getting people playing the sport. We are at a pivitol moment in the history of racquetball. It is time to bring together the players, sponsors, manufacturers, and organizations to help promote and support each other and keep our sport alive and well in all of its forms. Let's get people playing racquetball!!"
