Vale Paul Vear
Our racquetball community carries heavy hearts today on learning of Paul Vear’s passing yesterday afternoon.
Paul’s dedication to Australian Racquetball was without peer. He encouraged, cajoled (sometimes) and gently nudged players and potential players to give racquetball a go, often calling potential entrants on the eve of a tournament to see if they ‘might be free for a bash’ to ensure everyone at the event had a great experience and solid hit. His presence at tournaments and events was larger than life, and he was always happy to share thoughts and ideas on how to grow the sport we all love. His energy around the courts was infectious, and his joy and love for the sport and its participants clear to see.
Paul leaves behind massive shoes to fill and an enduring legacy in racquetball. We will miss you dearly.
We pass on our condolences to his partner Jane, children Ryan and Tara and the extended Vear family.
