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.
