Happy One Year Anniversary TRB!

The Racquetball Blog officially began to "follow the bouncing ball" on July 7th of last year, and although the start was slow, we did manage to put out 155 articles by the end of 2008. That was a pace of 1.15 posts per day!

This year, we've put out 154 posts (including this one) over 188 days, which is still about 1 per day (0.82 actually). Our goal is to bring you something new about racquetball each day.

There are several topics that we've covered, primarily reports about the elite players, but also discussions of racquetball on continents other than North America, as well as the history of the game and instructions from some of racquetball's top coaches.

On the horizon, as we start our second year are the World Games later this month in Taiwan and the European Championships in Paris. We'll also have further installments in our instruction series with Jim Winterton, former US National Team coach, Loren Prentice, one of Canada's National Team coaches, and others.

We encourage you to spread the word about The Racquetball Blog. Tell your friends! Tell your enemies! Tell anyone interested in racquetball! Become a fan of The Racquetball Blog on Facebook!

We also encourage you to let us know what you think of any of our articles, or story ideas by either leaving a comment directly on TRB site (click on "N comments", where "N" is the number of comments left to date, that appears at the bottom of each article) or sending an email to The Racquetball Blog (all one word) AT gmail DOT com.

We appreciate your interest, readership and welcome all feedback as we continue to ...

Follow the bouncing ball....

Sir (I'm assuming),

I don't know who you are but I want you to know that I greatly appreciate what you do.

I'm a recreational player and have begun following the IRT since seeing matches on the Tennis Channel. I use your blog to keep up to date with the pros and you do a great job of doing that.

Lately I've enjoyed the Tips that have appeared as well.

So keep up the good work, I'm out here reading.

Thanks for your efforts.

Dear Mr. Bakerjian,

Thank you for the comment. You're correct "sir" we are; well, we are when we're singular.
