Welcome Tournament Players,
The Big C Doubles Championships will feature the CPRT 40+ DOUBLES DIVISION. Slated to play in this event are the teams of Cliff Swain/Gerry Price and Ruben Gonzalez/Woody Clouse. We are hoping to also see the teams of Brett Harnett/Michael Bronfeld and Jimmy Lowe/Tim Hansen enter the draw. The Big C Doubles Champs is a DOUBLES ONLY event that will feature POOL PLAY OR ROUND ROBIN in all divisions except the Open Divisions. Players will be allowed to play in THREE EVENTS but their third event MUST BE A MIXED DOUBLES!!
NEW to this Concord event is the payment of $10 PER REFEREE!! You'll notice an increase in our first division price. We have chosen to try paying refs for the first time in order to try and alleviate the stress of having to chase down the losing player after their match. We understand that it is frustrating to have to ref after a loss, especially when we're rushing the process. However, asking winning players to ref is not the answer and we still need to keep the matches going so we can attempt to stay on time. We are asking that losing players ref the next matches if they are available, but it is not a requirement. We are hoping to have a number of players volunteer to ref throughout the event because they want to make their entry fee back or even a profit.
SATURDAY NIGHT PARTY @ THE BIG C RESTAURANT!!! This party will immediately follow the completion of the CPRT Division Finals and will take place just down the hall from the courts. Bring your dancing shoes and prepare to enjoy the fine foods of Lee & Larry's Bad Ass BBQ!!
More information will be sent out in the following weeks to players listed on the R2 Sports system. You can download a copy of the entry form from the www.californiaracquetball.org site. If you have any questions, please email me at email@example.com
See you in September. Keep em rollin.........
