WINNIPEG (December 8, 2022) – Racquetball Canada and Gearbox Sports have signed on to a new partnership, with Gearbox becoming Racquetball Canada’s Official Ball partner.
The Gearbox Sleek Black Ball will be Racquetball Canada’s Official Ball and will be used in all sanctioned tournaments across Canada. As the official ball of the International Racquetball Federation (IRF), it is also used in all international tournaments. The Pro-Penn ball that was previously Racquetball Canada’s Official Ball is no longer available, so the new partnership is vital to Racquetball Canada.
“We are excited to build a relationship with Gearbox,” said Kathy Brook, Racquetball Canada’s Executive Director. “With Gearbox’s commitment to both development and superior performance, we think together we can continue to grow the sport of racquetball both in Canada and abroad.”
This new partnership confirms the commitment of both Gearbox and Racquetball Canada, by providing a quality product and partnership that will benefit players of all ages and skill levels and will keep the sport moving forward across the country. Gearbox has already contributed to the development of the sport in Canada through a generous donation of balls, as well as racquets and eyewear to be used for junior programs.
“Gearbox is thrilled to partner with Racquetball Canada and proud to be the official ball for years to come,” said Joel Arredondo, Athlete Manager with Gearbox Sports. “Our goal to support and grow the sport align perfectly, and we can’t wait to collaborate with Racquetball Canada and see what else we can achieve together.”
