David Bobby Horn was always an athlete. In high school his main sport was basketball and he was frequently found shooting around the gym at the In-Shape West Lane racquetball club in Stockton. A group fitness dance class held in the gym would interrupt David’s time on the basketball court, leaving him two options: hanging around the club doing nothing, or going home to do nothing. One day while waiting for the basketball court, Jose Diaz invited him to hit the racquetball around. David, being a natural athlete and competitor, was immediately hooked. From that first day, David loved racquetball. It wasn’t about playing racquetball competitively; it was just for enjoyment. As a teen who didn’t really know where he was going with his life, racquetball became a positive outlet and a way to stay out of trouble.
David embraced the Stockton racquetball scene and started traveling to tournaments with Diaz and the Rojas family. This was David’s first opportunity to travel, ever. With the excitement of traveling and his love for the sport, David started to see how racquetball could be a part of his future. Today, through his professional career, David has been all over the United States, places like New York City, Chicago, and the beautiful state of Colorado, where he hopes to fish the next time he is there (fishing is David’s second passion). In addition to traveling the United States, he has played tournaments in Mexico, Costa Rica, the Dominican Republic, Colombia, Bolivia and Chile.
