WOR and the outdoor game will be an important vehicle in the promotion and overall growth of the sport of racquetball.
Company Overview:World Outdoor Racquetball (WOR) is the parallel universe to the traditional sport of racquetball played by millions in clubs throughout the country. The rules are the same, the racquets and ball are the same, but the attitude and action take this variation of the sport to a whole new level. Sunglasses replace eye guards, hats replace headbands, and shirts are optional - sunscreen is one of the most valuable commodities in your bag!
The top players in the outdoor game are equally skilled to the best indoor players and International Racquetball Tour professionals are frequently found struggling with the nuances of playing outside and losing matches out in the sun and heat.
Tournaments held in the fresh air and bright sunshine take on a whole new atmosphere; generally more social and party-like, often part of larger outdoor festivals or events, but always competitive on the court. The speed and the power of the game played on the hardest of walls and floors, the athleticism of the players (yes, they still dive for balls on the concrete), and the opportunity to hit a killshot from 50 feet away make WOR events unlike any the traditional indoor player or spectator has ever seen.
