2018 NMRA Doubles-Only Tucson

Racquetball Tournament 11/30/2018 - 12/2/2018
2018 NMRA Doubles-Only Tucson
Tucson Racquet & Fitness Club - TUCSON, AZ USA

(Check back here often for tourney updates as they happen.)

Update Nov 14, 2018: The official deadline has passed, but I still need great partners and one female roommate. If you want to get in, give me (Cindy) a call at 303.888.4461. I am working on arranging all doubles partners, and I may call you to see if you would be willing to add a second doubles division. I live in the fire area of SoCal, and I haven't had internet access for a few days--just when I should be working on this. I should be back to normal in the next two days. Don't hesitate to call me if you have questions. Even though our player number is not as high as I anticipated, the round robins are very strong and you should get just enough racquetball for three days. Plan to attend the SATURDAY night banquet and play into Sunday afternoon. We will make sure you have a great time!

40+ Racquetball Doubles Players!!

Welcome to the 2018 NMRA Doubles-Only Championships, (this is different than our regular schedule!) FRIDAY, SATURDAY AND SUNDAY, November 30 through December 2, 2018. It is going to be a great time in Tucson! We hope you will come out for the player information meetings at 5:15 pm and 7:00 pm on Thursday, November 29, to get all of your questions answered. We have identical meetings for the early and late arrivers.

For all the information you need on this tournament, you can click here to go to the www.nmra.info site and see the Information Sheet for the tournament. We recommend you download it and bring it with you as you plan your trip and make your reservations.

Please plan to come out to the Tucson/Phoenix area early to visit the desert or even drive up to the Grand Canyon and Sedona or over to Biosphere 2! There is so much to do, as you will see on the Things To Do list.

For this three-day tourney, the first event is $85; second is $25. You don’t have to have one mixed doubles event, but we hope you will, as it makes the Mixed doubles stronger. You may request a doubles partner and/or a roommate and we will do our best. For the 70+ players, we will be offering a special second division where players play with and against all of the other partners (limit of 16 entrants) to gain points and have one player crowned champion. We call it Rotating Partner Doubles or Jackpot Doubles. Most likely 70- to 74-year-olds will be in one division and 75+ will be in another. Of course, regular set-partner doubles will also be available.

Enter online by November 12, or send in a US mail entry by November 9. You’ll get food and fun all week, in addition to our famous banquet slideshow and a great tournament shirt.

No refunds will be allowed after November 12, when shirts will have been ordered and matches scheduled. One special note about the hotel (the Doubletree Hilton Reid Park): PLEASE RESERVE YOUR ROOM EARLY. We have only reserved 21 rooms, but we can get more if those fill up before our deadline. The Saturday night banquet will be at the hotel in the banquet

The club will be Tucson Racquet & Fitness Club in north Tucson. We have all 11 courts. These courts are concrete-walled and two have back glass. Thanks to Renee Sitter and the Tucson Racquet Club crew for allowing us to use the facility.

Because of the great location, the all-round-robin format of matches, and the fact that we only have 11 courts for this tournament, we anticipate that the number of players will be capped at about 150. Of course, a waiting list will be created at that point, because 40+ players always have an injury or last-second conflict. We hope we will be able to accommodate everyone.

There is much more information available in the Info Sheet. In addition, there are many things to do in Arizona and the surrounding states so we have written up a list of just a few. If you prefer to enter via US Mail, there is a downloadable entry here too. http://www.nationalmastersracquetball.com/competition/annual-championships/

Call or email us if you have any questions. I look forward to seeing you in Southern Arizona at check-in night on Thursday, November 29, at about 5:00 pm. Thanks for considering playing our tournament. We think we have a great formula for providing the best bang for your travel tournament dollar, but we are always open to suggestions.
