Training in Rochester NY and traveling to 12+ tournaments per season carry costs that necessitate sponsorship to allow Mario to focus on training and competition. RSRA sponsorship will allow Mario to focus and compete at the top-level and achieve the full potential of his professional squash career. Mario currently trains at Midtown Athletic Club courtesy of a membership provided by MTAC. He also trains with the University of Rochester men’s squash team and under the coaching of former PSA world number 4, Martin Heath. In return for our sponsorship, Mario has committed to give back to the Rochester squash community.
