2012 Ormond Beach Racquetball at Port Orange YMCA

25 players competed in singles and doubles racquetball at this local event.

Fun, friendly and fierce competition rolled into one is the motto on which I have been running this event for the past nine years.   This racquetball event is one of the sports offered in the annual Ormond Beach Senior Games which includes some 20 other events. 

In prior years Racquetball was a qualifying event for the Florida Sports Foundation State Games, but several years ago it became an open event which meant you did not have to qualify at a local event to enter the state games.   However, some municipalities still offer a racquetball event as part of their local senior games.  One of those is the Ormond Beach Senior games where the racquetball event on Oct. 26-27, 2012 was hosted at the Port Orange YMCA which has 4 nice courts two of which have full back wall glass on the ground floor.

I have been running this event for 9 years and most of our players come in from outside of the Ormond, Daytona, Port Orange area many of whom have consistently entered for several years.   Although I have moved from the Port Orange/Ormond area I will continue to run this event and enjoy seeing old friends providing their interest continues.  My thanks and appreciation goes out to the local and out of town players that keep this event viable as part of the overall Ormond Beach Senior Games
Thanks, Andy Pawlowski
