Ashaway Renews Sponsorship Deal with Racquetball Hall of Famer Jacqueline Paraiso

Ashaway, RI -- Ashaway Racket Strings recently announced it has renewed its long-standing sponsorship agreement with racquetball great and Hall of Fame player Jacqueline Paraiso.

"Jacqueline is not only a great player and a great ambassador for Ashaway strings, but she is a terrific coach and mentor to younger players, working with junior players as young as 4 and up to 18," said Ashaway's Steve Crandall. "She currently heads up the World Gym Racquetball Kid's Academy, recently created the Racquetball Teen Academy, and has a twenty-five year long history of junior racquetball instruction. We love working with her."

In her professional career, Paraiso has won seven World Championship titles -- more than any other racquetball player -- and has made more appearances on Team USA than any other racquetball player, winning over 20 gold medals in all. She has also won 14 U.S. doubles women's titles and five mixed doubles titles. She was inducted into the Racquetball Hall of Fame in 2009. She lives in California with her husband and has two children.

"Working with kids is my passion," said Jacqueline, "I've done it throughout my professional career and hope to keep doing it as long as I am able. I also love working with Ashaway. I not only use their 17 gauge PowerKill® string, but find their selection of racquetball strings excellent for young players just starting out, juniors playing at the top of the charts, and for adult players at every level."
