Racquetball champs

Three members of ClubSport Pleasanton's Junior Racquetball Team -- Jared Lee, 13, Nikhil Singh, 12, and Julian Singh-10 -- earned national recognition as competitive racquetball players playing at the national Junior Olympics. Julian Singh took a gold medal in 10 doubles and a bronze in 10 singles, both in the Gold division, the highest level. Nikhil Singh took third in the blue division (second highest) in singles. The three have played at ClubSport Pleasanton for many years and are coached by Elaine Dexter, Certified ProAm Racquetball Professional Instructor.

By winning the gold in doubles, Julian Singh qualified to represent the USA at the world junior championships in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, this summer. Julian and his partner Sebastian Fernandez from San Diego played their hearts out and took third place, winning a bronze medal, in the boys 10 doubles. Julian also took third place in the red division of the boys 10 singles.
