Before we get started, we admit that this list is reflective of the sport from our perspective. Racquetball offers a broad experience for people that spend any amount of time playing or looking at our sport. We tried to do what we always attempt to do, which is point t...

Alex Landa is probably best suited to take advantage of professional racquetball in the state that it is in today. There is an elephant in the room type of environment for those who aren't concerned with taking sides and just prove that they will compete with anyone wh...

Heading into December, the pro racquetball tours have been relatively active with stops since The United Healthcare US Open. The International Racquetball Tour has had two T1 events. The Ladies Professional Racquetball Tour has had 2 T1's, a Grand Slam in Mexico and on...

A few times during my conversations over the past two weeks, I either heard or read something that I've known for some time now, that there were subsidies available for club owners to convert racquetball courts to squash. To me, this made sense as a growth practice emp...

A dozen times, Kane Waselenchuk has won this title. 12 US Open Championships is more than all former champions combined. It was also his 100th tour stop win. (He received a unique gift from the IRT marking this milestone... check it out @restrungmag on Instag...

Mike Coulter used the term "The Big Show" to reference the upcoming UnitedHealthcare US Open of Racquetball. That reference pushed me back a bit because Coulter had moments before spoken in great detail about what has to happen for 3 WallBall to become a real...

I commented on the World Racquetball Tour's agreement with the International Racquetball Federation last season. The first event these two organizations cooperate resulted in an IRF World Racquetball Championships with a ton of match video and interviews made avai...

In this entry, I'm picking up from where I left off before the summer break with the post, "It Really Is Hard To Be A Fan Of Professional Racquetball"

What can we look forward to this season with the pro tours? As a fan, I just don't know. The way I see it, "just"...

Video. Where is the video? Where are the highlights? Where are the short clips that run through my feed that I will inevitably click on that engages me? This is especially troubling to me because I follow professional racquetball hard. Or at least try to. I want racque...

In the last two Racquetball Restrung podcasts, much of the talk was focused on aspects that were missing in the current crop of professional racquetball players outside of the elder statesmen of the top three. In the podcast conv...

Following professional racquetball is pretty much about knowing where the top players in the sport are competing for money. It feels like this year's tail end of the season has some big gaps between tour stops, which confirms that racquetball is mostly all about playin...

In 2004, there was a convergence of racquetball players set up on the Historic Hollywood Beach Garfield Courts in Florida by the newly formed World Outdoor Racquetball organization. Relatively new, WOR backed an idea set up by Scott Hirsh and Marty Hogan to bring curre...

Something that kind of slid in under the radar this month was the announced partnership agreement between the International Racquetball Federation and the World Racquetball Tour. The info was put out right before US National Doubles weekend and Mexican Nationals.

In racquetball, how do you know when you're getting full value? As a sponsor for a tournament or a tour, how do you assess return? Sales? Sentiment? Reach? All of those things?

 

Tours, organizations and events have been the main way that racquet manufacturers have been...

January 26, 2016

Over the last few weeks talking about the IRT and WRT tours, the conversations have mostly hinged on how having two tours operating in a small market is viewed by both sides. (If you haven't heard the discussions, you can hear the talk on the Racquetball...
