Mike Wedel, tournament director for The Athletic Club of Overland Park was recently elected to the USA Racquetball Board of Directors. Mike has been involved with the Athletic Club for 10 years in various aspects. To be elected, Mike had to meet several requirements and was up against 48 other candidates from across the country.
Candidates had to possess great communication skills and a strong work ethic. Mike has proven to possess both with his many years of experience in both business and sports.
Another requirement required the signatures of 200 USA Racquetball members who would like the candidate to be added to the list of potential appointees. Mike was able to obtain the 200 signatures necessary, but not without the support of local racquetball players. Mike expresses his sincere thanks to all of those who voted for him!
Having served as President of the Kansas Racquetball Association for 6 years and currently serving as Vice President, Mike was more than qualified. Mike has directed more than 70 racquetball tournaments throughout his career. Mike previously served as Sports Director at The Athletic Club and currently serves as Tournament Director for both racquetball and handball.
The Athletic Club is pleased to have been a part of Mike’s racquetball career and continues to wish him the best in his future endeavors!
