updates as they happen.)
Update March 9, 2019: We are livestreaming matches all day from the YMCA Thousand Oaks. Click here. http://dailyracquetball.com/2019-nmra-national-championships-san-antonio/
Update Feb 23, 2019: The deadline has passed, but I still need a few more partners for people, so if you are thinking of playing, give me a call. Maybe we can get you in. Sometimes we have injuries before play starts, and we need substitutes, too.
Important: I have at least two rooms available at the Doubletree San Antonio Airport that need people to stay in them. Help! :-) Give me a call with questions or to get one of those rooms.
I'm working on partners now, and you may get a call from me this week if you are not already set up with partners. See you very soon! Cindy 303.888.4461

PLEASE RESERVE YOUR ROOM AS EARLY AS YOU CAN. We have only reserved 26 rooms at the Doubletree San Antonio Airport, but we can
get more if those fill up before our deadline. You will find it easiest to stay at the host
hotel, as there will be an hourly shuttle to both clubs, provided free.
The banquet will be on Friday night at the host hotel. Don't miss this, because awards and slideshows and videos are customary.
The host club
will be the famous Thousand Oaks YMCA. We are allowed to use all five of their panel-walled
courts. Thanks to Mike Cantu and Sandy Rios arranging our use the

think we have a great formula for providing the best bang for your travel
tournament dollar, but we are always open to suggestions.
