Needs a location
Let's kick off this meetup group by organizing our first (of many) racquetball ladders. Please read the below details carefully. Also disregard the start date of this meetup. Slots will remain open until we have enough players, so start RSVPing asap. If you have more questions, please feel free to contact me directly. -- Thx, Paul
2008-’09 WINTER LADDER DETAILS
1) Minimum of 5 players are needed to start this ladder. 10 players is optimal. I will wait until we have the desired size to start formally organizing the ladder.
2) Ladder players will play 10-11 matches over 3 months depending on ladder size. Cost for the ladder is appx $100 per player and location of the courts will be in Manhattan somewhere in the 20’s.
This includes 1-2 scrimmage games (to get the kinks out) and then 8-9 match games for points. Each match is best 2 out of 3. Scores will be passed to the organizer with rankings & standings developing over time as you play in more ladders.
3) Skill level is C +/-
This means you are neither a beginner nor an expert. A typical C-Level player has played a lot at some given point in time (college, local gym, local ladder), might still play occasionally (few times a year), and is looking to get back into the swing of things. I want to be strict about skill level for this ladder as this is the majority of players. If there is demand to open up the levels, I will try and accommodate.
4) This ladder is self-organized.
I will provide the email list, but you are responsible for purchasing your court passes, setting up all matches, reserving the courts, and organizing in a timely fashion. You will be playing 11 games in 3 months. That means approximately 1 game per week. If you cannot commit to that participation, DO NOT join this ladder. If you get injured mid-ladder, you must notify me so I can adjust the organization. It is critical to abide by this commitment else be removed from the ladder as it’s not fair to the other players.
5) You are responsible for your own equipment and proper attire. This means racquet, ball, protective eyewear and sneakers that do not mark the walls. If you choose not to bring eyeware, you do so at your own risk.
And that’s about it for now. Let’s get this going. Contact me directly if you want to play. Game On!
