Save the Date!!! - MRF needs the Racquetball Community to help with an Outdoor Racquetball Demonstration
The Military Racquetball Federation is teaming with The Valor Games to
present an outdoor racquetball rehabilitation demonstration for veterans
and Wounded Warriors in Morrisville, NC. An outdoor racquetball court will be constructed through a grant from
The Home Depot Foundation and the help of Team Depot, The Home Depot’s
associate-led volunteer force. If you would like to assist, there are
three ways to get involved. (1) On Wednesday, May 21st, Team Depot will
have at least 50 members of its associate-led volunteer force to
construct the court. You can help with this project either building it
or helping with disassembling and storing the court when event is over.
(2) There is anticipated to be over 250 wounded warriors participating
in this event and we could use your help your with the check-in process
on Thursday, May 22nd. (3) We will need experienced racquetball players
to help teach fundamental racquetball techniques for the wounded
warriors on Thursday, May 22nd from 8:00am – 12:00pm. If you would like
