Squash is pushed pretty hard at the local gyms here, in place of raquetball it seems, and especially hard at Lifetime Fitness. Definitely more avid players than a cable park.
How does this show the globalization of cable? It doesn't indicate cable vs general wakeboarding. It might show the general awareness of the "sport" of riding a wakeboard, but not distinguishing it seems more detremental than helpful in the long-run, given USA-WS has tried to get into the Olympics for decades, and this is now their newest endeavor with their membership money and resources.
