Hello Nebraska Racquetballers!
Congrats on being a part of the best tournament season we have seen in over 10 years!!
Thanks to our sponsors for giving us a 'spark'!

Our state singles has been under discussion for several years now, still not really sure how things will continue going forward but for this season, we ARE hosting a Singles Only tourney that is open to all players who live in NE or belong to a NE club.
Our neighboring states do not do 'state only' events although they have quite a few more tourney players than NE. Nebraska has a long running tradition of the traveling cub for the Mens Open singles winner that many do not want to see go away. It also gives the opportunity for our players to compete and work on their singles skills! :-)
Troy Vanbemelen is our current Mens Open Singles Champion, he will be hoping to keep that trophy for another year, while Travis Mettenbrink has his name engraved on the cup 5 times and he wants to add to that. We have several other players that will do their best to add their name to the list!
With the strong showing from our UNO players, the juniors, ladies and all the Mens players from all skill levels this season we could really have a great singles event.
This is a one day event, low entry fee, food for lunch, state medals for winners and of course lots of laughs and friendship building that NE is known for.
