A very special thank you goes out to Mr. Dennis Garrison, owner of Club Sport San Ramon, and to the General Manager Mike Reardon and his tremendous staff for always supporting racquetball and the Toys for Kids event.
Also a huge thank you to the Lanman family for the hundreds of toys they donate every year, and
a special thank you to Jack and Terry from Racquetball Plus for all the help with this year's event.
Because it is the season of giving, all participants will receive the souvenir of the year.
This year's tournament will start at 8 am sharp. If you are playing in A/B doubles please be at the club by 7:30 am to register and warm up in order to be ready to play at 8:00 am. If we get the event off on time it should stay on schedule all day.
There will be three divisions, A/B Doubles (8:00 am to 11:00 am), Open/Elite Mixed Doubles (11:00 am to 2:00 pm) and Open/Elite Doubles (2:00 pm to 5:00 pm). Men and Women may play in A/B and Open/Elite.
The two important reasons that are close to my heart for this event are to treat tournament players with class and to collect toys and donations for families in need during the holidays. The event Toys for Kids has been a very important part of my life for the past 25 years.
The tournament will be limited to approximately 10 teams per division. That being said, this tournament will fill up very quickly, so sign up early so you will not be disappointed by being left out.
We will have two pools per division with the top two teams from each pool earning berths in the playoffs.
The matches in pool play will be one game to 15
The matches in the playoffs, semifinals and finals, will be 2 out of 3 games to 11.
New for this year: special awards for first and second in each division.
ALL PARTICIPANTS: please bring new, unwrapped toys for any age kids to place under the Christmas Tree. These toys will go to children who normally, without your generosity, would not receive presents during the Holidays.
Finally, we would like to thank all participants for making this event so special over the years and brightening the lives of families in need during the Holidays.
