Welcome to the new INSRA website, our state forum to promote this great sport, and provide information about racquetball in Indiana and nationally. We hope to provide more tournament opportunities and special events, and to promote roles for players as certified instructors, referees or racquetball ambassadors. All of these efforts can help recruit new players, and can lead to a lifetime of racquetball play, fitness, and fun.
COVID-19 and Indiana Racquetball: As you all know, increasingly protective measures have been put into effect to reduce the the rapid spread of this virus in the United States. This appropriate public health focus has also significantly affected our 2020 INSRA Event Schedule. Several tournaments have been postponed: March Madness Doubles, Lifetime/Gearbox Shootout, the Purdue Cup and State Singles have all been postponed until further notice. Please see the revised 2020 Event Schedule in Upcoming Events.
The INSRA Board intends to reschedule these events as soon as the immediate crisis passes, and we are able to make alternative plans. This intent is tempered by the inability to predict when public health restrictions will be lifted. We appreciate your patience and understanding during this sobering time.
In the meantime, take every precaution to keep yourselves safe and your families protected. Take a look at the CDC website to keep yourselves educated about this pandemic and our collective safety. And try to stay in shape! Use your imagination, home equipment, ellipticals, etc. We hope to see you on the courts soon.
