AND DIVISIONS: Open Teams shall consist of 2 to 30
players, men and /or women, from the same university/college. Teams cannot
combine players from different campuses in the same system (for example,
University of Texas - Austin, Arlington, and El Paso campuses). Like singles
teams, doubles teams must also be from the same university/ college. The same
placement requirements will apply to doubles teams. •There are six (6) singles
divisions, three (3) doubles divisions for men and women. No two players from
the same team will play in the same division. Team Title Divisions are numbered 1-6 (singles)
and 1-3 (doubles). Singles players may enter doubles as a second event. If
there are less than six players, men or women, on a team, divisions will be
filled from the top first, i.e., #1 Singles, #2 Singles, etc. •For schools with
"extra" players see Skill Divisions below. Registrar Verification Form is required for Team Title Divisions.
REFEREE TESTING: All Players are required to have taken the online A-8- Collegiate Referee Test prior to the event. This is a revised test. The test is FREE!! Go to: Membership profile>>courses and testing>>my courses and tests.
ALL-AMERICANS: The top four (4) finishers in each
of the men's and women's gold singles divisions 1-6 will be designated as the
2017 Intercollegiate Racquetball All-Americans.
SKILL DIVISIONS: NEW for 2017 !!! Students that are in-eligible to compete in the Team Title Divisions are permitted to play in the Skill Divisions. Limited to 16 players per divisions. Registrar Verification for Skill Divisions is required as you must be enrolled at your school full or part time.
Schools with "extra"
players may field a separate roster of skill division players who will compete
for individual ranking – but advances in these rounds will not count toward
national team titles. In singles, a maximum of five players per school may
enter A/B - C/D. In doubles, two teams in each category may be fielded in
Men's, Women's, Mixed, A/B - C/D. If you are entered in any numbered singles,
you may not enter the skill singles, the same applies for the numbered doubles.
