Racquets – Leach

“Leach Industries was started in the early 1970’s by Bud Leach.  During the decade of the 70’s they were instrumental in setting the vibrant tone for racquetball.  This went against the establishment and resulted in Leach racquets and players having a cult like following within racquetball circles.  The explosive popularity of racquetball led Leach to introduce new racquets designed at certain market areas.  From top professionals to beginners and especially women, Leach was targeting them all.  Leach products faded out when they were sold to Diversified Products in March of 1980.”-Randy Stafford
