2013 Team Ocala Scholarship Tournament
May 24, 2013 - Ocala, FL
For the past 6 years, Team Ocala's racquetball league has
hosted a local racquetball tournament with all proceeds going to youth
development in Marion County. Generous sponsors have donated time and money to
make the event a top notch experience. In total, Team Ocala has donated almost
$30,000. That's amazing for a 2 court facility.
The relationship with the YMCA and the
racquetball program is successful. The Y now considers racquetball as a
permanent program and the staff is engaged in what is happening back at the
courts. This keeps the influx of new members coming into the program. Each
season and each tournament, there are always new faces falling back in love
with a great sport.
