1st Annual Trax Law Challenge

Congratulations to Lance Krager who was victorious in the King of the  Court format event that honored Don Traxler.

Don is a staple at the Midland Michigan facility. In his 80’s he still plays 3-4 days a week. Don started playing Paddleball in 1962, taking a break in 1963 to begin his career and start a family then starting again in 1964. He has several national championships under his belt and is in the NPA Hall of Fame.

His friends at the Community Center thought it would be a nice idea to have an event in his name. 15 players met this morning (February 2, 2019) to play, share stories and reminisce.

Congrats to Don for his 55th consecutive year of playing this great game.
