Ohio Racquetball Association Collegiate Programs!

Ohio Intercollegiate Racquetball Program

The Ohio Intercollegiate Racquetball Program is designed to offer young athletes attending Ohio colleges and universities the opportunity to enjoy competitive racquetball while pursuing their advanced education goals.  The program has two parts.  First, an annual series of sanctioned collegiate racquetball events are offered. 

Players are guaranteed a minimum of two matches and earn points for their school team with each match won.  There is no minimum on the size of a team (can be just one person!) to participate.  Individual awards are given to the division winners at each event and team point totals are maintained for the entire year.  At the end of the season, the school with the most points is deemed State Champions by the Ohio Racquetball Association.

The second part of the program is the ORA/Wilson Collegiate Scholarship Award.  This $3,500 (minimum) annual cash scholarship is awarded to one or more player(s) that exemplify the ability to successfully pursue both racquetball and educational goals.  The award is presented each year at the annual ORA Awards Banquet held during the State Singles Championships in March.  Applications are accepted from high school seniors planning to attend college in the Fall through college juniors.  Winners can only receive support for a maximum of four years.
