The International Racquetball Federation offered streaming of a few matches today from their Facebook Page. We understand that the host has agreed to allow streaming if it is not-for-profit. Sadly, we don’t have boots on the ground to be able to provide streaming either way, but if permission has been given we should be able to share others streams. Watch our Facebook Page tomorrow.
