The National Masters Racquetball Association, for mature players 45 years or older, is very proud to announce the return to OREM, UTAH. (Last visited in March 2008)
The Orem Fitness Center & Utah Valley University - Orem, Utah are the two venues.
This is a ROUND ROBIN FORMAT so plan on playing everyday back-to-back matches. Play begins at 8am everyday. The last match is scheduled to end at 9 p.m. Wednesday & Thursday and 5 p.m. on Friday & Saturday. All matches are self-refereed. Every division will play two games to 15. Large “pool play” divisions will have Saturday playoff matches. Playoff format will be two games to 15, tiebreaker to 11 if needed. Bonus points are awarded for winning each game (2 per game) and 4 bonus points for scoring the most points in the round robin matches. Ties will split the extra 4 match bonus points. Points are automatically calculated by the R2sports tournament software. When any team or player must forfeit, average scores will be used to determine final results of the division or pool. If a forfeit occurs during a match, the opposing team or player will be awarded points required to finish the match.
Do not make your plane reservations on Saturday evening before 7 p.m. to ensure you are available to complete all your matches.
Tuesday night REGISTRATION is from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. and includes complimentary hot and cold hors d'oeuvres and drinks.
Fruit and drinks available everyday at the club. Hot Lunch is served daily at the club. Saturday's lunch is a box lunch to accommodate your travel plans.
