  ASIA OPEN SPONSORS(KOREA)       2011-01-17 14:18:15

As we all know ARF has been around for more than 10 years but we have not had consistent funding sources until the President Cho secure a sponsor that has been giving us close to $10,000 per year.   He was able to get more sponsors to support our 2011 Asia Open addition to IRF(International Racquetball Federation), IRT JAPAN and E-Force.

LOC for the Asia Open is going to be the Seoul Racquetball Association and the President Kang will be in charge.  During their annual Board meeting they have decided to make a few donations.

Here is the list what he was able to get:

President Kang: Kim Chee Refrigerator worth $1500 us dollar (it is great to store vegetables and fruits)

The Seoul Racquetball Association:$1000 us dollar worth of sport equipment

Mr. Lee, the president of Gum Chun Racquetball Association: will provide embroidery service for the 2011 Asia Open shirts.

The President Cho made an announcement that new 5 racquetball courts will be built by June, 2011 in Go Yang City in Kyung Ki Province. The name of the Gymnasium is the Go Yang City Sport Complexes. This is an ideal place for us since it is away from Seoul but has everything Seoul can offer.  It is located only 30 minutes from Inchon Airport instead of an hour to Seoul. It is an ideal place to visit for sightseeing for not only players but for their families

The president will like to talk to the members during the 2011 Asia Open about having the future Asia Racquetball Federations tournament at this location.

  Hello from Jack and Christie       2010-12-08 12:58:55
