Alex Luyando, Webmaster

Alex has been a recreational racquetball player since the late 70s whose biggest contribution to racquetball has been the introduction of racquetball to our NJAR VP Nancy (think: “I was but the learner; now *I* am the master.” [a] ) and the daily care and feeding of our official NJAR mascot, the totally adorable and purrfect e-Force Ellie. When not trying to figure out why he’s not rolling out every shot after decades of playing racquetball Alex tends to the care and feeding of this website, hoping to provide a portal into the New Jersey racquetball scene for racquetball players of all ages and levels. YOU can help! Please feel free to email me with feedback, ideas, suggestions that will help make this site better! ___ [a]  - Darth Vader to Obi-Wan Kenobi (or Nancy to Alex!): I've been waiting for you, Obi-Wan. We meet again, at last. The circle is now complete. When I left you, I was but the learner; now *I* am the master.
