The Women and Juniors Committees of the WRA are working together to bring racquetball to new players. We will be presenting a fun afternoon of lessons and playtime for women and kids at clubs in Western Washington this Fall and Winter. These will be open to club members only, so if you think your club might be interested, be sure and contact us! There is no charge to participate, and we’ll provide the gear. More details will be available at the annual picnic in Kent in July.
