In-Shape Shootout Players,
Welcome to the online sign up site for the In-Shape Spring Shootout being held at the In-Shape Sport: Tracy on May 15th-16th. This shootout will be SINGLES ONLY and all divisions will begin and end on the same day. Saturday's divisions will be Men's Elite, Men's B, Women's A and Women's B. Sunday's divisions will be Men's Open, Men's A and Men's 50+. All divisions will be a form of ROUND ROBIN or POOL PLAY DRAWS, with each player guaranteed at least three matches. Match play length will be determined after all sign ups are in. Women are allowed to sign up for male divisions and encouraged to do so if they desire. Players are allowed to play two separate skill divisions but must limit their play to one division per day. PLEASE DO NOT SANDBAG!! For example, if you're definitely an Elite player and you want to play two divisions then play Elite and Open, not Elite and A's.
This In-Shape Spring Shootout will use the Ektelon Classic Ball and all divisions will play the ONE SERVE RULE and NO COURT HINDERS. As always, all divisions will be a SELF REF policy unless a match absolutely needs a ref to ensure completion. This shootout is a sanctioned event so all players must either be yearly members of the CSRA/USAR or purchase a One Event Membership on the day of for $20. This cost is in addition to the entry fee per division played.
Hospitality will be provided both days with snacks in the morning, lunch for about three hours in the early afternoon and gatorade throughout both days. A tournament shirt will be provided for all tournament players and prizes will be given out to division winners only. I have something special in mind for this shootout but I can't give it away until the moment of. Let me just say that I'll be desperately trying to win my division so I can earn one of the prizes!!
I hope to see many of you in Tracy for this shootout as the Tracy facility definitely has the best sense of humor amongst the racquetball players. There will be a lot of laughs being had up and down the racquetball hallway of the In-Shape Sport: Tracy facility and you won't want to miss out....... I would be remissed not to mention the other option for tourney play on the same weekend as I'm bummed out that we're scheduled for the same date. However, the players from the Los Gatos club are hosting their annual fund raising event entitled the Elana Aalways Smiles Tournament. This is a great event and I'm bummed I'm missing it. You can find information for this event on the schedule page of the CSRA site.
Please give me a call if you want to sign up over the phone or email me. If you're planning on playing this event then it would help if you sign up earlier then four or five days before. The more players that sign up earlier, the easier it is for me to prepare fo the correct number of players. Thanks for your consideration in this matter. : )
See many of you in Tracy. Keep em rollin............
