Print Media

"One interesting area of racquetball is the print media.  Racquetball was a rather popular advertising tool.  There were ads that promoted the sport of racquetball, products, players, and tournaments.  Then there were ads that used racquetball as a technique to sell other products or services.  Some of these advertisements are quite interesting, and you will find them all right here in the print media section of the museum."-Randy Stafford
