Ladies! Ladies! Ladies!!

Are you ready??? START TIMES are now available for your viewing pleasure! I have done my very best to accommodate all time constraints.

IMPORTANT NOTE:

I have made a change in the playing format. With a few folks unable to play, and some consolidating to only one division, that left us a bit of room to add some playing time. Therefore, I have changed us to 2 games to 15 points (no tie breaker). The way that this works is simple ….. for each game won, the player/team will receive 1 point; and a bonus point if the player/team wins the match.

Any ties will be determined
1. head-to-head
2. if the head-to-head match was a split (being one game each), the winning player/team will be whomever had the most points between the two games
3. if there happens to be a 3 way tie, winner will be determined based off most points among the matches between those 3 players/teams (matches against other teams will not be factored in).

What does all of this mean??? It’s time to PLAY FOR PINK!! There will be a vast amount of playing, so be ready!

Get your Ugly Sweaters out for the Chirstmas Ugly Sweater contest, your charitable souls ready, and come to play!!

I can’t wait to see you on the courts,

-Tara

PS: For any of you who are around on Friday night (5:30pm) and want to come to the club early to watch our invitational mixed doubles take place, please do! There are only 18 teams fighting for the win!! These are teams put together out of drawing names out of a hat. It’s a blast to watch!

2017 HOPE for a Cure Breast Cancer Shootout

      Comments Off on 2017 HOPE for a Cure Breast Cancer Shootout

Racquetballers,

Our 9th annual HOPE for a Cure event is on the books!! 

This event serves a helping hand to so many who have been diagnosed with breast cancer, and need a helping hand with his/her financial obligations.  Additionally, we send funds to local foundations who provide education, and further assistance to those in need.  Could you ask for anything better? 

Because of the HOPE’s growing popularity, we have extended the women’s only shootout from one day to a full weekend!  Our racquetball community has come in strong each and every year, and this one won’t be different. 

Saying this, we couldn’t host this event without donations.  They can come in the form of products (bottles of water, snacks, catered food, etc.), raffle items and/or monetary contributions. 

Please read the attached donation letter, and please consider being a vital contributor this year’s event!!  You can assist by sharing it with your friends, company, business partners, church members, or anyone else you come across.  There is simply no donation that is too small. 

I thank you in advance!
Tara
