16th USHA Wallball Nationals

BROOKLYN, N.Y. — Gustavo Ruiz and Jenny Qu looked sharp as they successfully defended their titles at the 16th USHA Wallball Nationals.

In the Men’s Pro final, Ruiz faced off against five-time champion Tywan Cook. Throughout the tournament, Ruiz demonstrated his dominance by consistently delivering powerful serves that barely cleared the short line. These serves often forced weak returns from his opponents, which Ruiz capitalized on with powerful drives down the sidelines. Despite Cook’s impressive lateral movement and ability to chase down shots, Ruiz’s increasing strength and shot velocity as the match progressed allowed him to secure a decisive victory, winning his second title with a score of 25-13.

In the Women’s Pro final, Jenny Qu competed against Melanie Garate in a rematch of their 2023 encounter, where Qu had claimed a 25-11 victory. This year, Qu once again demonstrated her dominance in the Women’s division, securing another convincing win with a score of 25-12. Qu’s consistent performance reaffirms her status as one of the best wallball competitors, winning her fourth singles title in the past five Nationals.
