Racketball Tournament

Things to know for the tournament

  1. There is a fantastic total of 16 entrants. This creates 4 groups of 4. Great to see our brand new members getting involved in the tournament as well.
  2. There will be a plate tournament as well as the competition for the title. The "position" column is for everybody's position when the table is complete. The top 2 will go through to the main competition and the bottom 2 through to the plate tournament. Everybody will therefore have a minimum of 4 games in the tournament.
  3. You will be able to follow the tournament on our club website and facebook page, where weekly updates on the scores and how the competition is progressing will be posted. See below for link. The website will also contain all this information shortly (with the exception of everyone's contact details).
  4. It would be great if we could adhere to the target dates detailed, then the tournament will not drag on into the summer. It is my intention to have the competition and plate finals played on the same night, and to have a social event in the clubhouse after it. The finals date is to be confirmed. In saying this, I do understand we all have busy lives, so if you are particularly struggling to make the deadline of a particular stage, please contact Donald on the detailed number and I'll do my best to accommodate you.
  5. On club nights tournament games are to receive priority, within reason. If it is particularly busy, one court is to be used for tournaments and the other to be used by people attending for the club night.
  6. Every match will be the best of 5 games (first to 3). Traditional Racketball scoring rules will apply. First to 15 points, where the winner must win a game by 2 clear points. A competition black racketball ball to be used.
  7. Person marked with "c" (challenge) in the tables below has the responsibility to arrange the match. (ie in Group A it is Lee's responsibility to arrange the game with player 2, Norman. If the challenge is not made and the game is not arranged within the specified date by the challenger, they will forfeit the game.
  8. Scoring - The points marked up on the competition sheets will consist of the score in games, plus one point each for playing the match and a further point for the winner.

For example, if Player A beat Player B 3 games to 2, both get a point for playing and player A gets a further point for winning, so the score marked on the table would be 5-3 to Player A. If it was Player A's challenge and they failed to contact Player B in the specified time frame Player B would win 5-0, with a match score of 3-0 being assumed and Player A not getting a point for playing.
