Industry News Ashaway Adds Four Professional Racquetball Players To Its 2017 Sponsorship Team Ashaway has added four new players to its 2017 Pro- fessional Sponsorship Team for racquetball. They include Felipe Camacho, Alejandro Herrera, Daniel Ro- jas, and Gabriela Martinez. The Ashaway Sponsorship Team is designed to support rising professional play- ers 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 spon- sorships. 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.
