"...the most obvious part of Egyptian exceptionalism: concentrated quality." This makes me instantly look to Mexico, where they have a number of concentrated clubs where top-level players play each other. I touched on this in a recent blog post, Last Of A Kin...

I think, of all the stuff I talk about, this took me the longest to get to. Not quite sure why, maybe because I was separating Restrungmag from my personal involvement to some extent. In this case, it took me years. I was reporting or more keeping things to my take pro...

In my last blog post I wrote, "With my "racquetball-sport' energies significantly focused on the LPRT, I believe the fruit will come with a combination of execution and player buy in, as the LPRT works next season for a "real" growth. If we can transcend this operating...

When I set up the camera, it literally was something I decided to do spur of the moment. I was trying to figure out what direction I wanted to go with RestrungMag. I still have strong opinions, but most of that energy gets directed into the work I put in with the Ladie...

This is where I will start, with a video about how Egyptian players are dominating squash worldwide.

Watch it first.

In my previous post, The Last Of A Kind,  I mentioned the term "camp feel". Initially, I had the term in my mind because of the excessive amount of...

Things change in professional racquetball. Paradigm shifting change can happen pretty quickly or there could be an extended amount of time for transitions to take place. But things do change. First case in point, this past weekend saw the IRT put on an event without Jo...

Nine years ago, I was having thoughts of having a place that would pull the sport together. The name Restrung was a part of that deliberate thought. The same way you resting a racquet, and then you use that racquet to grow your game, it opened it up, at least in my min...

About My Last Posts

When I went back to see when I had written last, I was surprised that I had 4 entries for 2018. I feel like I've written next to nothing this year. I've been deliberately avoiding writing here and I'll get into my thinking on that in a bit. After goi...

The swing here is that the IRT didn't have any events the second half of the season that offered the Futures Division, yet, there was no shortage of these types of players making their way into IRT draws. Going into this thought leads me to take into account three...

What can I say other than it's been a truly interesting first half of the season for men's professional racquetball. With the transition to new ownership, the International Racquetball Tour has proactively started to build on it's foundations for the vision of the "new...

When was the last time you brought someone new to the courts to play racquetball?

Racquetball is a sport filled with organizations that work to promote and build up the state of the sport. With all these state, national and international orgs., the sport "is" engaged en...

This year, the UnitedHealthcare US Open had one of the most raucous matches I've ever witnessed. The Men's Pro Doubles final between Kane Waselenchuk and Ben Croft and Alvaro Beltran and Daniel De La Rosa was epic. I'm not one to use that word often when describing rac...

With the first stop on the International Racquetball Tour taking place this past weekend, the complete start of the new professional racquetball season has come. The World Racquetball Tour has had two events in August as did the Ladies Professional Racquetball Tour. Ye...

This quote was from a post I wrote almost 2 years ago. "I was on a call in February and heard something that made me take note. There were a few people on this call and the comment came from the head of a major racquetball manufacturer. It went something like this, ".....
