The Oklahoma Racquetball Association invites you to participate in the 2nd annual Rhema Spring Shootout. The last event we had at Rhema was fantastic, and we anticipate that this one will be even better. For starters, we've got the fourth court available! This will give us a considerable amount of extra flexibility in terms of scheduling. We have sanctioned this tournament as a three day event - Friday evening, Saturday, and Sunday. Doubles will be on Friday evening and Saturday morning. Singles will take place on Saturday and Sunday. We will have divisions for all skill levels and all ages!
Match format will be single elimination with a dropdown consolation bracket, or round robin in smaller divisions. All participants are guaranteed a minimum of two matches per division (barring forfets from opponents).
Players are allowed to enter up to three total divisions. However, due to scheduling issues, a maximum of two singles or two doubles divisions are allowed.
Game format will be 2 games to 15 points and tie breakers to 11 points. Game format for consolation matches may be modified to shorten matches should time constraints become an issue. Director reserves the right to alter division formats or combine divisions based on number of participants.
We will have referees for each match at this event if at all possible. Winners of a match are required to ref a match or find a suitable replacement to ref.
The official ball for this event is the Pro Penn HD (purple).
I didn't think Rhema could outdo themselves from the last event, but they are certainly going to try. We have an incredible array of food lined up for this event. Friday night will be a catered dinner from Olive Garden. Saturday morning will be a pancake, egg, and sausage breakfast from Golden Corral. Lunch will be Chick-Fil-A or Jimmy Johns, and we'll have a catered steak dinner from Golden Corral. Sunday breakfast will be lighter - donuts and / or muffins, with fruit. Lunch will be Jimmy Johns or pizza. There will be snacks and beverages available throughout the tournament. You won't find a tournament with better food, bring your Thanksgiving pants!
