Congratulations to Toronto

Congratulations Toronto! The 2015 Pan American Games have been awarded to Toronto, which was one of three cities bidding for the event. Bogata, Columbia and Lima, Peru were the others. Toronto won on the first ballot.

This is good news for racquetball, as racquetball is expected to be part of the program. Hopefully, it will be a boost to racquetball in Canada, and especially Ontario, which quite frankly needs a shot in the arm - and we don't mean a flu shot.

The announcement was made in Guadalajara, Mexico, which will be the site of the 2011 Pan American Games.

The Pan Am Games have been in Canada twice. Winnipeg was the host city on both occasions, first in 1967 - Canada's centennial year - and in 1999.

Follow the bouncing ball....
