Women’s Day Racquetball Clinic 2010
The Bob Sierra YMCA in Tampa played host to the 2010 Women’s Day Clinic held May 8th. The Florida Racquetball Association along with The Bob Sierra YMCA and Beef O’Brady’s helped sponsor the event in an effort to promote women’s racquetball.
This year’s event proved once again to be very successful. Twenty women from around the state came together for a day of instruction, camaraderie among friends, on court playing, and the chance to meet new players and make new friends. The ladies were given instruction and fitness tips. The seven instructors who donated their time on Saturday for the event were: Susan Adams, Karen Bouchard, Janet Tyler, Kris Alatorre Martin, Jean Trimble, Melody Butler, and Renee Fish. After morning sessions on basic shots and court drills, participants played each other or the instructors in the afternoon and also had the opportunity to receive personal training.
The day began at 8:30 AM and lasted until 5:00 PM. After lunch all the ladies participated in a question and answer session and were rewarded with really nice prizes provided by our wonderful sponsors for this event. Thank you Ektelon, Wilson, and Florida Racquetball Association. Also thanks to Yvonne Buffington and The Bob Sierra YMCA in Tampa who hosted the event and made it possible to run the clinic.
The FRA plans to sponsor the event again next year. Dates and locations will be posted on the FRA website. (submitted by Jean Trimble)
