We wish him and the other two Georgia racquetball players attending the USA National Championship tournament all of the best luck!
The USA Racquetball National Championship tournament pays certified referees a significantly better fee for refereeing than they do to non-certified refs. The Georgia Games tournament in July will follow this same standard. All winners will referee or find a qualified replacement or forfeit their next match. Non-certified referees receive $5.00 per match after the first required match, while certified referees will receive $10.00 per match after the first required match.
