Akron Racquetball Club is looking for new club members for the upcoming school year! The club meets twice a week, typically Wednesday and Thursdays from 6-9pm in the Ocasek Natatorium (ONAT) for open play and practice. Racquetball is a great way to stay in shape, meet new faces and relieve stress after a long day of class.
Last year, our club filled a collegiate team consisting of eight guys and eight ladies to compete in the Mid-East Racquetball Conference (MERC) and we plan on doing it again this year. We also play in some local tournaments, along with Collegiate Nationals in Arizona! Tournament play is encouraged but not necessary for participation in the club, just meet us at the courts and have some fun!
All skill levels are welcome, even those that have never held a racquet. All are welcome! If you are interested in more information, please contact the Club President, Allan Springer, at aws11@uakron.edu.
