Racquetball continues to be popular in Araglin, with young people in particular, showing great interest in the sport. A big plus for players is the opportunity to represent their country.
On this Thursday, three players from Araglin Racquetball Club (Kealan O’Gorman, Paul Hynes and Denis Riordan) head for Mexico to take part in the world junior championships – joining them is talented Mitchelstown player, Peter Barrett.
All these fellas know each other well and a great adventure lays ahead of them.
