Court Closings sign now

The South YM-YWCA, EK YM-YWCA and the Downtown YM-YWCA (except one court), all in Winnipeg, are planning on closing all of their existing racquetball courts, leaving their members who play racquetball with no access to play their sport anymore. This is harmful to not only Racquetball, but to sport in general. If you do not agree with the YM-YWCAs decision to close these courts, please sign below.

    I have played raquetball once a week for a long time now and it's hard enough to book a court time. How are we to even get a court time if there will only be one court for everyone??? One of the reasons I joined the Y was due to the courts...

    I cannot understand why the "Y" would want to replace an activity that is as much used as Raquetball. Those courts are always packed - one has to make a reservation a week in advance to get a court. I've also noticed that most of the raquetball players us

    I am most disappointed at the news of the proposed court closures. I've been a member of the EKY primarily because of the opportunity to play racquetball.What a wonderful experience this has proven to be as I've maintained my physical fitness while also d

    Please keep your racquetball courts open to encourage participation in physical activity.

    We almost had the same thing happen in Saint John, NB. I am glad our YMCA did their homework and realized this was not as "savy" as they initially thought.

    The letter I received from CEO Dave Young states that the YMCAs "continue to grow strongly with a greater focus on family-oriented and quality multi-use programming." Many kids and adults play racquetball so it seems to me that this sport fits right in wi

    The YMCA seems to have abandoned the players who have supported them, fundraised for them, replaced aging equipment with money raised thorugh Bingo's, supplied free instructors to attract new members. My membership will definitely be cancelled if the cour

    I'm excited about playing at the Junior R. Nationals at the end of the month, but I'm very mad that I can't play anymore after that.

    I will consider cancelling my membership if this goes through. I know that the courts at south Y are very heavily used and I can't understand this decision.

    I am very upset at the decision to close the courts at the E.K. Y. My son has been a member for many years and has been playing raquetball for as long as he has been able to play. He is now 14 and raquetball is the only reason he is still a member at the
