Paris Racquetball becomes France Racquetball
After 2,5 years of promoting racquetball in Nanterre, the Paris Racquetball Association takes a more national role by becoming France Racquetball, an association representing French Racquetball in the European Racquetball Federation and International Racquetball Federation. While the statutes of the association remain unchanged, the leading officers change a little: Mr Jean-Pierre Boudart, former President of Paris Racquetball becomes Honorary President of France Racquetball while Mr Philippe Lecomte takes his place as new President of the Federation. Mr Yann Le Penven joins the board as Vice-President loaded. Other posts remain unchanged, with Miss Sandrine Coupel to the secretariat, and Mr Nicolas Mufraggi as treasurer. Besides that, a management committee has been established to support the board's work which includes Mr Benjamin Teinturier, in charge of animations, Mrs Claudine Mora, in charge of communication and Mr Nicolas Mufraggi, in charge of tournaments and with national teams. First two goals of the new team are: The creation of a national structure, in collaboration with a the local town halls and the European Championships in August 2011 in Germany. Other missions are also underway of course. Find more information on French Racquetball at www.france-racquetball.org or www.paris-racquetball.org.
