"3WallBall has been incredibly supportive and provides a lot of events that are run extremely well. They are always coming up with new ideas as well as being open to others ideas for the growth of outdoor. I have no doubt that 3WB will take outdoor further than it's ever been in the history of the sport."

"Helping put on the 3WallBall event and the shootouts here in Las Vegas is my thank you to the sport. We all need to dig deep and not just expect this great sport of ours to continue for our enjoyment. Sometimes a little effort or money can go a long way to preserve the fun we have and keep the friendships and the stories growing!​"

Add some more info about this item...

Born when & where:         Brooklyn New York, November 1958

Family:                                 Married Patty Weaver right here at the Stratosphere, at the very first 3wallball

Education:                           University of Florida

Profession:                          I manage Emerging Markets and Commercial relationships for Suntrust Bank

How & when you started racquetball: My first racquetball game was in August 1976 against Hall of Famers Martha and Greg McDonald.

Other sports:                       Started playing paddleball in 1971 at the Historic Courts on Garfield Street. 

Career highlights:                My career highlights are mostly off the court as an event director and promoter of the game as well as the acting National Director of World Outdoor Racquetball from 2007 through 2011.  Over my career I have been event director the “Big Three” events:  Wor Championships in Huntington Beach CA, 3wallball Championships in Vegas, and The Beach Bash on Hollywood Beach.  In 2008 was the inaugural winner of Greg Sheffield award: Presented annually to the player who exhibits honor, integrity and true love for growing the game.

What you like about outdoor racquetball:  Outdoor racquetball is social!  Nearly all venues for weekend games play “challenge court” doubles, which creates a very social atmosphere.  Plus, with outdoor racquetball, often experience can win over physical attributes.  Older players and less physically gifted players can often win with shot selection, teamwork and experience.

 Ideas to grow the sport: Continue to offer divisions for all skill levels and ages.  Find ways to attract more indoor players to try Outdoor.  Make racquetball gear and instruction accessible to young players at all parks and venues.

Family: Married with 3 children

Education: Some College

Profession: Self Employed and Pro Kennex Racquetball Representative for Southern, CA

What you like about outdoor racquetball:  It’s a different vibe than you have playing indoor racquetball. Being outside in the sun and listening to music while interacting with fellow players is like hanging out at a BBQ.

Ideas to grow the sport:   I wish I had an answer. We need clubs in SO Cal that allow juniors access to the courts. Places like Nor Cal and Oregon have great junior programs. High School clubs and offering RB as equivalent to physical education will give us a new base to grow.
