Racquetball Canada Announces Pan Am Championships Teams
WINNIPEG, March 16, 2021 – Racquetball Canada is pleased to announce the teams that will represent Canada at the Pan Am Championships which will be held in Santa Cruz de la Sierra, Bolivia from April 9 to 16, 2022. The team was selected based on results of national events held throughout the season.
This will be the first international event held since the International Racquetball Federation (IRF) adopted new competition format and rules. Racquetball Canada operates using the same rules as the IRF.
Samuel Murray, one of the veteran team members and 5th ranked player on the men’s pro-tour, is looking forward to the tournament. “We are excited to play at the Pan American Championships with all new rules and match formats. It will be a great experience for Team Canada,” Murray said.
Racquetball Canada is primed and ready for the 2022 Pan American Championships,” said Jen Saunders, Racquetball Canada’s High Performance Director. “We are especially looking forward to seeing our team adapt and excel in the exciting new tournament format. Our first ever Mixed Doubles team will be competing for Team Canada and having everyone come together for the Team Event will be fun.”
Kurtis Cullen of Brandon, Manitoba will be officiating at the tournament.
