The Oklahoma Racquetball Association invites you to participate in the 2nd annual Rhema Fall Shootout. The last event we had at Rhema was fantastic, and we anticipate that this one will be even better. We have sanctioned this tournament as a three day event on October 13th - 15th. Doubles play will begin Friday evening, and conclude on Saturday, while singles play will begin Saturday and conclude on 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 forfeits 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).
We are changing things up a bit from the traditional trophies. No specifics yet, but instead of trophies, we will have prizes for winners in each division.
The food offered will be top notch as per usual, and all meals are included with your entry fee. We will have dinner on Friday evening, breakfast, lunch, and dinner on Saturday, and breakfast and lunch (if necessary) on Sunday. Olive Garden, Chick-Fil-A, and a catered steak dinner on Saturday from Golden Corral are just some of the food options we'll have. There will be snacks and beverages available throughout the tournament as well. You won't find a tournament with better food, bring your Thanksgiving pants!
