Weekend Round Up

There are a few bits from the weekend. But perhaps we should again have a shout out to Toronto for its successful bid to host the Pan American Games in 2015.

IRT: Chris Crowther won the Pomona Valley Open tournament in Claremont, California. He defeated Charles Pratt in the final, 11-2, 11-3, 11-4. In the semis, Crowther beat Thomas Fuhrmann, 11-8, 11-2, 11-4, and Pratt defeated Rafael Filippini, 11-8, 11-7, 11-9.

WPRO: Jennifer Saunders won the Women's Open division at the Rock 'N' Racquetball at the Coast tournament in Wilimington, North Carolina Sunday by defeating Keely Franks in the final, 15-14, 15-11. It's her second Open division win of the season, as Saunders also won in Dallas at the Texas Open in September.

In the semis, Saunders defeated Doreen Fowler, 15-8, 15-3, while Franks beat Cristina Amaya, 10-15, 15-13, 11-9.

CANADA: Coming up this weekend is Racquetball Canada's first National Team Selection Event of the season. Players will be competing in Regina, Saskatchewan for spots to represent Canada at the Pan American Championships in April that are scheduled to occur in Honduras.

Follow the bouncing ball....
