Dario Mas, a native of Cuba and a Delaware resident since 1968, was a dominant racquetball player and advocate for the growth of the sport. Mas won 17 consecutive Delaware state singles
titles and was part of six state doubles championship teams. From 1981 to 2004, Mas won more than 300 tournaments across the United States, winning 85 percent of the tournaments that he entered. Mas
was ranked among the top ten players in his age bracket in the U.S. for more than 15 years, at times holding the number one spot. Mas was the founder of the Delaware Amateur Racquetball Association
(DARA) and was a member of DARA’s inaugural Hall of Fame class in 1990. He remains a member of the DARA Board of Directors. For six years, he was an elected member of the United States Racquetball
Board of Directors. In 2006, in ceremonies in Miami, Mas was inducted into the Cuban Sports Hall of Fame. He continues to be active in organizing tournaments in Delaware.



Every inductee into the Delaware Sports Hall of Fame since our inaugural year in 1976 is represented on our website. Honoring the athletic excellence of these men and women is an integral part of Delaware sports history.


From our annual Delaware Sports Hall of Fame induction gala in May, celebrations of Black History Month and Women in Sports Month, as well as individual sports highlights, there is something for every sports fan.


A visit to the museum will take you back over 100 years of sports in Delaware, from the Lenni Lenape Indians right up to today. Experience memorabilia, artifacts, and the stories of Delaware legends.
