FL Spring Break ProAm March 6-10
The 6th annual Florida Spring Break Pro/Am tournament will be better than ever in 2013 with an exciting mix of professional and amateur matches, fabulous venues, and special events–all taking place in Tampa, Florida, March 6-10. And if that isn’t enough, as Tournament Director Kim Roy says, “It’s Spring Break time in Florida…enough said!”
The Best Ever
The three most commonly asked questions I encounter at events are: 1. How much do you weigh? 2. How do you hit the ball so hard? And 3: Who’s the best player of all time? The first two are questions that I get sick of pretty quickly, but then I sit back and think about who is the greatest racquetball player of all time. When this discussion comes up, many names are thrown out there, and rightfully so. For this article I’m going to stick with the top three: Cliff, Kane and Sudsy. (In alphabetical order to avoid anyone looking too deeply into the order I speak of them in!) Here are my arguments of why each is considered by many to be the best ever:

Controlling Center Court
In every sport, positioning is everything and racquetball is no different. In racquetball, being in the right place at the right time is critical to giving yourself the best chance of getting to the ball a majority of the time and doing something with it once you get there, whether to defend or to score. Generally, the person who owns and controls center court has a greater chance of winning the match. This strategy is key.
