2013 Doubles and RaquetBall

Welcome to all who signed up to this year’s Doubles and RaquetBall championships. I hope you enjoy the tournament. Please read carefully the following notes.

Timing

These two tournaments are held simultaneously from June 9th to July 14th.

All rounds, with the exception of the Semi-finals and the Finals must be self-arranged. You MUST ensure that you play these games in a timely manner in order for the semi-finals to be played on Saturday the 13th July. In particular, we have a large number of entrants for the doubles and clearly each game, involving 4 people, is twice as hard to set up as normal. So please start arranging your round 1 games immediately.

Some of you have entered for both tournaments and if you are lucky (or skillful) enough to have reached the semis or finals, then you’d better be fit as they will be played one after the other.

Courts will be allocated in due course for Semi finals on the afternoon of July 13th and Finals in the early evening of July 14th. Times for the Finals is non-negotiable. You may play your semi-final prior to the Saturday, but please let me know so that I can free up the allocated court.

  • Semifinals: July 13th, PM
  • Finals: July 14th, PM

Scoring

Both tournaments are scored using the American system (every rally wins a point).

  • Doubles: Play goes to 15 and is the best of 3 games.
  • RaquetBall: Play goes to 11 and is the best of 5 games.

Once you have played your game, you’ll want to note it on the draws as posted on the notice board. BUT, please also email me your results as I can update the above links with your result so that these can be used as an on-line reference for others to plan who they need to play next.

Marking

The Finals require marking. If you are willing and able to mark on the day, please let me know. Clearly, if you end up playing in the finals I’ll let you off. Otherwise, I would really appreciate some volunteers early on so that I don’t have to scramble around at the last moment begging people to mark. Thanks..
