Welcome to the Women's Senior/Masters Racquetball Association Website
The Women's Senior/Masters Racquetball Association (WSMRA) is an organization dedicated to promoting racquetball as a lifetime sport. Our members are women 35 and over who still wish to compete on a high level but have fun at the same time. We sponsor a yearly National tournament of self-refereed, round-robin play within age groups. All matches in our tournament count in the current USAR ranking system. In this tournament you will not only find yourself competing against some of the best women players in the country, but you will have a great time. We stress fun, friends and good sportsmanship.

In Remembrance: Lola and Ray Markus
The racquetball community has lost two of the best. Lola Markus passed away on Aug 25, 2019 on her 88th birthday, just over 2 months after her beloved husband of 67 years and biggest fan Ray passed away. Ray and Lola were fixtures at the Lattof YMCA in DesPlaines, IL. Ray as always ready with a smile, a hug and of course a corny joke! He made everyone feel welcome like an old friend. Lola played racquetball since the sport's early days and was an inspiration to generations of racquetball players. To commemorate their 50th wedding anniversary, Lola and Ray began funding a youth racquetball instruction program at Lattof the program is still going strong today. She was a true example of what racquetball is all about: a fierce competitor on the court and a friend to everyone off the court. She loved racquetball, chocolate, ice cream and dancing. Lola played in most Women's Senior/Masters from the second one in 1991, as well as many World Seniors and NMRA tournaments, and was still competing in her 80's. She was always ready for an adventure wherever she went. Lola and Ray made everyone feel special, they were true ambassadors of racquetball and will be missed. Lola was a member of the NMRA Hall of Fame, the Illinois Racquetball Hall of Fame and received many other honors. RIP Lola and Ray.
