Ashway USA Racquetball Logo

Ashaway has been the official string of USA Racquetball for over 15 years, and supports more than 100 top amateur players nationwide with annual string sponsorships.
Ashaway has added four new players to its 2017 Professional Sponsorship Team for racquetball. They include Felipe Camacho, Alejandro Herrera, Daniel Rojas, and Gabriela Martinez. The Ashaway Sponsorship Team is designed to support rising professional players in the sport of racquetball. The member package includes the player's choice of Ashaway Racquetball String, as well as significant performance incentives. Ashaway has also been the "Official String of USA Racquetball" for over 15 years and supports more than 100 top amateur players nationwide with string sponsorships.

Currently #10 in singles on the IRT Tour, Felipe Camacho, lives in Pueblo, CO, but is originally from San Jose, Costa Rica, where he began playing in 1998 at the age of 10. Since then, he has risen steadily, like the sport has all over Latin America. Of his success, Camacho says, "I don't think about success when I go to tournaments. I am not thinking about winning the match, just each point at a time. More than numbers I have goals mentally." Felipe uses Ashaway UltraKill® 17 in his E-Force Dark Star 170 at 33 lbs. tension.

Alejandro Herrera ranks #34 on the IRT Tour in singles. He lives in Miami but hails from Cali, Colombia. He recently won the Sioux Falls Open Doubles tournament and plays with a Head Radical 170 frame, strung with Ashaway PowerKill® 17 at 31 lbs. for the mains and 29 lbs. for crosses. He says he's, "proud and very happy" to be part of the Ashaway Sponsorship Team.

Gabriela "Gaby" Martinez, is currently ranked #16 in singles on the LPRT Tour, and plays out of Guatemala City, Guatemala. Her goal is to move into the LPRT top 12 by the end of 2017. Gaby strings Ashaway PowerKill 17 in her E-Force Dark Star 160 frame at 35 lbs.

Daniel Rojas is from Stockton, CA, and is a cousin of Jose and Marco Rojas, both ranked in the IRT top 10 in singles. Daniel is currently ranked at #25 and uses SuperKill® 17 at 38 lbs. in his Head Radical 170 XT frame. He hopes to break into the IRT top 20 next season.
