Catalonia are Champions of Europe

The European Racquetball Federation is reporting on their website that Catalonia has won both the men's and women's team competition at the 15th European Racquetball Championships in Nanterre, France, just outside Paris.

In both finals, Catalonia was up against Germany, and in both they split the singles matches, so the doubles match decided the winner. Catalonia came out on top to win their first ever European Team Championships. Victor Montserrat of Catalonia won the individual title two years ago.

The 2009 championships were to be played in Barcelona, Catalonia, but the new facility was not ready. The win bodes well for the development of racquetball in the region.

The European championships' individual competitions continue through Saturday.

Follow the bouncing ball....
