2017 Alaska State Racquetball Singles Championships


2017 Sponsors: 

** Kelly King & Family ** Monster Wash – Tyler Scott ** 

** Bridges Counseling Connection **

** iAlaskaGifts.com – Josh Wood **


This tournament takes place Wednesday through Saturday out of town players MUST be available to play no later than Thursday, matches will take place between 5-9pm Weekdays and 9am-5pm Saturday at The Alaska Club East. At the conclusion of the tournament, we invite all players and guests to attend our “Season Ending Party” at O’Malley’s on the Green Saturday evening starting at 7 pm where we will crown our Champions and also induct 3 individuals into the Alaska Racquetball Hall of Fame. Deadline for entry is April 16.

All players are required to be AARA Members and a $15 annual fee will collected at the tournament desk for all non-members. 



Update

 We ended up with 34 players who will compete in 6 different divisions, We have folks coming from Kodiak, Fairbanks, and Juneau who will be looking to take home a state title or two. Even with only 34 players most playing two events and doing our best at accommodating everyone's time conflicts scheduling was tough, If you signed up for 2 events don't be surprised if you have to play multiple times in one evening. Please show up early for your matches so as to keep things as close to on time as possible, for extra Karma you may even want to volunteer to referee one of the matches especially the 5:30 games. 


Drawsheets for the Tournament
(Current as of 10:30 pm Friday)


** Men's 25+ ** Men's 50+ ** 

** Junior's **
