I am putting together a league for spring 2019 and want you to join us! Some of you may not have played in league in some time, but it’s a great way to get in better shape and reconnect with our racquetball community. I would really like to see this spring have a great turnout with new players and old. Remember, you do not have to be a member to participate!! So join us and bring a friend or two along as well. There is a short sign up period, so don’t delay! You have to sign up by April 12 at our front desk at Cordata. League will run from April 17 through June 12. It will end before you think about those summer vacations! There will be divisions for beginners through advanced players, so bring in those that are new to the game. We’ll get them in the correct category! If you have any questions, ask away! Wanda
