Junior Classes in CA

A news season of junior racquetball begins Sept. 11 at the Petaluma Valley Athletic Club.

Classes are every Saturday, with beginners from 11 a.m. until noon and intermediate/advanced players from noon to 2 p.m. The age range is 6 to18.

Instruction is offered by AMPRO-certified instructors Brian Dixon and Orlando Mayo. The beginner class is assisted by Nidia Funes and junior- tournament players Sawyer Lloyd, Luke Sewall and others.

Players learn rules, how to play, safety and good sportsmanship. Players have utilized the skills learned to further their racquetball playing, or just to help with basic life skills.

Recently Lloyd won two silver medals and a gold at the Junior National Racquetball Championships, and will be representing USA at the World Championships.

During the middle of the session, a junior-only tournament will take place at PVAC on Oct. 16. This will include PVAC players,as well as players from outside clubs.

signup forms are available at PVAC, 85 Corona Road. For more information, contact Dixon at or call 766-9105.
