While here we go again!.. The 2015/16 Alaska Racquetball season gets under way with the 2015 Fall Kick-Off October 8-11 at The Alaska Club Midtown, This is the first of six tournaments to be held at The Alaska Club and we are looking forward to another GREAT season.

Entry fees: $30 for the first event; $8 for second and third event. Juniors $15 for first event. Juniors must play in a Junior division as their first event to receive this special price. Entry deadline is Sunday October 4th . Entry forms are available at the club..

With so many of our regular players unavailable to compete this Weekend for many different reasons this tournament is small in numbers, Even though the numbers are down the divisions that did have enough  entries should be very competitive.  There were many requests from players to not play on Sunday, So we will be ending the tournament on Saturday late afternoon.

The Alaska Club Midtown will be hosting a "Racquetball Singles Shuttle" on Saturday October 3  from 12:30-2:30pm. This is a chance to get ready for the upcoming Fall Kick-Off tournament. Players are required to show up 1 half hour prior to start time (12 Noon) with $10 cash, At 12:15 any reserved spots will be given away to stand by players.

How do shuttles work?: Players will be ranked according to the Alaska State Rankings with the highest ranked Player starting on the HIGHER NUMBERED COURTS and working down to the LOWER SEEDED PLAYERS on the LOWER NUMBERED COURTS. Play begins when the Whistle is blown, players will play until the whistle is blown once again to stop play (7 Minutes Later), Winners will move UP 1 court toward the LOWER NUMBERED COURTS while Losers will move DOWN 1 court toward the HIGHER NUMBERED COURTS and both shall be ready to start the new game within 30 SECONDS. Play will continue for 2 Hours with the winners being determined by total number of MATCH WINS.

We had 10 Hearty souls turnout for the first shuttle of the Alaska Racquetball season and after 2 hours of playing most will be a little sore tonight. It was nice to see a couple new players trying out the shuttle along with seeing some Friends we don't see much of during our Summer break.
