DoublesMania11 (2022) – the WRAP UP !

Well done to all players who played in this season’s doublesMania 11 which proved to be a
very friendly and exciting competition gently priming us after such a long break for our first
post-Covid ESRA normal season starting tonight.

Congratulations to all our doublesMania 11 Premiers,
and thanks to ESRA for providing the winner’s mugs and certificates.

This season we also had a great turn-out from the doublesMania players who didn’t make the finals
and turned up to compete in our “doublesLotto playoffs”!

VALE Paul Vear

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.

Details of Paul’s Funeral Service:-

The funeral service to celebrate the life of Paul Vear will be held at the Heritage Funeral Home 733 Boronia Road Wantirna on Friday 28TH January 2022 commencing at 4.00pm.
