We strongly urge you to go through both of them for your needs as they both make it easier for all of you to play during the ECRC season, at various events outside of the ECRC & they both make the ECRC Northeast Regional Championships a Collegiate event like no other! Special thanks to RacquetWorld.com for their continued contributions over the past 30 YEARS, making it possible for any Collegiate student to step onto a court and try the sport of Racquetball. Make sure you thank both the RacquetWorld and WearRollout staffs for their charity and support.
