We are saddened to announce that the racquetball community has lost a passionate player, supporter, and “best trash talker for a C player ever,” Pete Pierce, in whose honor the 2014 Party with the Pros in St. Louis was named. A true class act with a great outlook on life, sense of humor, and passion for racquetball, he was loved by everyone and will be sorely missed. Our heartfelt condolences go out to his family and friends during this difficult time.
