COMPETITION FORMAT

 
  • Events include Men's Singles, Women's Singles, Men's Doubles, Women's Doubles, and Mixed Doubles.
  • Athletes must provide their own racquets. Balls will be provided.
  • Partners must each designate the other on their entry form. No partners will be assigned and no partner changes may be made after the entry deadline.
  • The age division of competition for doubles and mixed doubles will be determined by the age of the younger of the two partners as of December 31, 2019.
  • If numbers are conducive, athletes will be divided into pools within their age division. Within each pool, a single round-robin tournament will be played. At the conclusion of the round-robin, winners will advance and play a single elimination tournament. If entries are not conducive, a double elimination tournament will be played within the age divisions. Winners will be determined within each age division.
  • KSG reserves the right to change the tournament format for any age division based on entry numbers, space restrictions, or other circumstance.
  • Lensed eye-ware designed for racquet sports is mandatory.
  • Matches will be best of three games, with the first two games to 15. Third game tiebreakers will be played to 11.
  • Competition must take place to determine winners. If there is only one individual entered in an age division, that individual must complete the event to receive the gold medal. That individual will be placed with the closest age division to compete with—but not against—those athletes. Hence, there may be two gold medals awarded in such an event, and the win/loss record will not be considered.
  • First matches will begin promptly at 1 p.m.. Subsequent matches will begin as soon as courts become available. This will facilitate the completion of competition.
  • Each participant will be expected to referee a subsequent match.
  • All matches will be conducted in accordance with the United States Racquetball Association rules, except as modified herein. Please visit http://www.teamusa.org/USA-Racquetball for a copy of these rules.
