Are you a woman who enjoys playing racquetball socially, have been thinking about playing in local tournaments, but are unsure about stepping into the tournament realm? Then grab a “wingman” who can walk you through the process, attend a tournament with you, and give you some good tips for making your tournament experience an enjoyable one. Tournaments are a great way to meet new people, see different places, and watch great racquetball.
Much of the trepidation women have toward tournaments stems from a “fear of the unknown” or the preconceived notion that tournaments are too competitive or only for “good” players. There is certainly always exciting, competitive racquetball to watch, particularly in the Open/Pro divisions, but there are also skill, age, and age/skill divisions of play for everyone. If you’re unsure of your skill level, your wingman can help you make a fair and realistic assessment of which division is best for you.
If you’re interested in giving a tournament a try, but need some assistance the first time around, feel free to contact me, and I’ll be your wingman or will find you a wingman (or woman) to help make your experience a memorable one. Also, don’t miss out on incentives the CVRA offers for first time tournament players. One year of membership in the United States Racquetball Association is funded by the CVRA if you enter your first tournament at the C or D/Novice level!!
Feel free to contact me via email or phone. I’ll endeavor to get back to you within 24 hours.
The Women’s Programming page is a great place to showcase the performance and camaraderie of our lady players. If you have any social or racquetball photos you’d like to see posted here, send them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
