Election Results: USA Racquetball Board Welcomes New Members

by USA Racquetball

The USA Racquetball Election Committee, chaired by Terry Rogers, announces the results of the Board of Directors election that concluded on March 31.


Congratulations to newly elected members Sandy Rios and Slemo Warigon who will begin their terms on the USA Racquetball Board of Directors at its Annual Meeting in May.

Two seats were available in this election cycle, and the communication process began March 1, 2023, with announcements on the USA Racquetball website and social media and via email to members outlining the process, requirements, and deadlines. The Election Committee was pleased to have six qualified candidates submit applications for Board service, which led to the difficult process of interviewing the candidates and submitting a slate of between two and six candidates that was subject to the Board’s final approval. General membership voting commenced March 1, 2023, and concluded March 31, 2023.

In their statements of interest, each articulated their decision to throw their hats into the ring:

“I would like to help bring ideas to grow our sport, increase our membership and promote the game to people who may not already participated.I think that by developing plans to help both state organizations and local enthusiastic groups expose the youth and young adults, we can engage with local sponsors and help bring needed funds to support tournament directors, junior players, and both state and the national organization.We need to engage with all players and help keep the entire community moving forward in a united front to promote the game and increase interest.”

-- Sandy Rios

“I have a wealth of experience in leadership, fundraising, marketing, communications, finance/auditing, and information technology. I used to lead fundraising efforts for RYDF when I served on its board for several years. I also have passion for racquetball. You can find my brief bio at:”

-- Slemo Warigon

USA Racquetball's gratitude goes to Sandy and Slemo for their willingness to support USA Racquetball, the sport, and its players. Warm thanks go to departing Board member Cindy Tilbury for her dedicated service over the past six years and to Mike Grisz who is now serving as volunteer Executive Director.

We invite and encourage USA Racquetball members to consider Board service when the next cycle commences this summer. Another way to become involved is to join a committee of interest. Please visit About/Contact Us/Volunteer Committees, or contact Vice President Terry Rogers at
