Update 12/11/17: Today is the deadline for the JW Marriott deal. The Doubletree Reid Park host hotel still has rooms. If they only show King rooms, you may call Rebecca Crane directly to ask her for a two-queen or a rollaway for $15 per night. She is at 520.323.5219. We have requests for roommates who have rooms reserved. More updates to come! Watch this space...
Welcome 35+ Women
us in Tucson
Friday through Sunday, January 12-14, 2018
WSMRA knows how special you are and we want to get to know you!
are excited to have the 29th Annual Women’s Senior/Masters
Racquetball Association (WSMRA) National Championships at the Tucson Racquet
& Fitness Club in Tucson, Arizona! If you have never played in a WSMRA
event, you are in for a treat. Yes, there will be plenty of racquetball. Our
round-robin format ensures that you will be playing every day of our three-day
tournament. We offer both Open/A competition for top-level players in five-year
age increments, and B/C divisions if you aren’t quite as accomplished. You can
also expect to meet new friends and connect with old ones. The food will be
plentiful and the dancing lively. The Saturday night banquet will be a time for
fun awards and slideshows, so make sure you set aside time for it. The rest of
the time you are not playing your matches, you will definitely want to explore
Tucson and the surrounding area. For printable information on the tournament
and Tucson, and pictures of prior years’ events, please click here.
hostesses for the weekend will be Cindy Tilbury (303.888.4461) and Linda Moore
(402.304.8975). Feel free to contact us with questions or suggestions. We have
great things planned for you and are working hard to make it the best WSMRA
tournaments are organized by the tournament committee, with help from the WSMRA
board of directors. Tournament Committee members are Terry Rogers
(650.245.8743), Merijean Kelley (650.856.2292) and Paula Sperling
(505.681.6070). Kendra Tutsch (608.332.1073) is the president and driving force
behind all of the fun.
you are interested in joining our WSMRA, we hope you will. There is no set
membership fee, but any donation is greatly appreciated. Our expenses are low,
but we like to do a little fundraising, so every little bit helps. Whether or
not you can join us in Tucson in 2018, please consider joining the WSMRA and
getting on Kendra Tutsch’s WSMRA mailing list.
last note: Plan to arrive before 2:00 pm on Thursday to get on the courts
to practice, and to join us for Fun Doubles. You will be paired up with
and against players, and you may also practice a little with your doubles
partner. Directly after that, there will be a player meeting with hot
appetizers and cold beverages, followed by a check-in to pick up your player
packet and tourney jacket. For travel after the tournament, schedule your
flights on Monday (MLK holiday) or late afternoon Sunday.
We have an additional exciting hotel option for Tucson for ladies who are NOT
