As racquetball continues to gain momentum in Central and South America, Ektelon Racquetball has become a major supporter of racquetball associations, events and players throughout Latin America. Ektelon continues to establish new partnerships with various countries as their Official Ball and thanks to Ektelon, Central and South American countries are beginning to receive major support from a US racquetball manufacturer in support of league and tournament play. Ektelon continues to have a strong presence in racquetball north of the border in Canada as well as across the pond in Europe and also in Korea.
Ektelon Racquetball is proud to claim many of the top players in Latin America as Team Ektelon players, and leading the way is the world’s number one women’s player, Veronica Sotomayor. At 21, Vero is having the season of her career by making her first LPRT Tier 1 Event final at the Stockin Pro-Am this past August 2013. Watch out for Vero as she travels to as many pro stops as school allows.Alexandra Herrera from Tijuana, Mexico is one of Ektelon’s brightest stars. Alexandra just recently returned from the Junior World Championships in Cali, Colombia where she won Gold in the Girls 18 & Under Doubles. Look for Alexandra to start playing some LPRT pro stops in the near future.
