Cuban native Dario Mas has been in Delaware since 1968, and in those 46 years he has become a racquetball powerhouse and advocate for the sport. For that, he will be inducted into the Delaware Sports Museum and Hall of Fame on May 15.
Mas won 17 straight Delaware state singles titles and was part of six state doubles championship teams. He won more than 300 tournaments across the country between 1981-2004, approximately 85 percent of the events in which he participated. Mas was ranked among the top 10 players in his age bracket for more than 15 years, at times holding the No. 1 spot.
The founder of the Delaware Amateur Racquetball Association (DARA), Mas was a member of the organization’s inaugural hall of fame class in 1990 and remains a member of the DARA board of directors. For six years, he was an elected member of the U.S. Racquetball board of directors. He is still active organizing tournaments in Delaware.
Mas is a 2006 inductee into the Cuban Sports Hall of Fame.
