Collegiate racquetball has been one of the sport's bright spots in recent years. Shane Wood, USAR Intercollegiates Program Director, wrote in May 2005 about the year-over-year growth they have had in collegiate racquetball in the eastern region. See http://meetandplay.com/ - Forum - Collegiate Racquetball ...

The ECRC has pretty steadily grown 50-100% each year for the last 3 or 4 years [as of May 2005]. We used to have a base of 5-7 teams. This year, we had 28 teams compete, and 5 more already that we got set up at clubs at their schools and will be participating next season.

Collegiate tournaments are all about teamwork and fun competition, and are one of the best ways to grow your game. All players will score points based on how they finish in the tournament, and all players will contribute to their team's overall success.

 
 
 
 

Our tournaments are easy one day tournaments, and we're usually done by the afternoon. We are using the "Olympic" format for tournament play, which assures all players that they will play a number of matches throughout the day - win or lose!

Schools in the conference also scrimmage against one another regularly throughout the school year. These fun informal events are a great chance to play a variety of people, and to learn and try out new shots. Scrimmages include all club members - not just team members - and are a great way to involve more people and grow the racquetball community!

We are looking to help other schools, especially in Southern California and Reno, build programs, get involved in collegiate tournaments in their area, and get involved in the fun!
