Welcome tournament players to the online sign up site for the 2008 Concord Classic at the Big C Athletic Club in Concord, CA. This event will be a full ranking Classic Pro Racquetball Tour (CPRT) event featuring some of the best pros from the 70's, 80's and 90's. The East Bay's own Gerry Price will be one of the featured pros along with the #1 ranked CPRT player, Woody Clouse, legendary pro, Brett Harnett and the GREATEST OF ALL TIME, CLIFF SWAIN.
In addition to the CPRT division this event will be a CSRA sanctioned open tournament with a large variety of divisions. **A few key notes: Expect some minor changes to a normal tournament times schedule as the Big C has some restrictions on times. Players over 40 years of age are eligible to sign up for the CPRT Division. This event will not feature Junior Divisions.
**NEW INFO - We have three host hotels that will all provide shuttle to and from the club. Please plan on utilizing the shuttle rides if you are staying at the hotels and even if you're not. Parking at The Big C Athletic Club will be difficult as Big C members will have the right to the main parking lots. Attendants will be supervising the parking lot. Host hotel information is on the Hotel page of this site. I'm staying at the Holiday Inn and there's a good reason for that. We will be partying on Saturday night, either at The Big C or the Holiday Inn Lounge. More on this soon. You won't want to miss it!!!
We are very excited for the opportunity to host a large racquetball event in the Bay Area. The Big C Athletic Club has been extremely supportive as we prepare for this event.

Looking forward to this event more than most others!!
