FORMAT/ TEAM COMPETITION
This championship is played in an Olympic (aka double elimination) format. See diagram below for details.
 
 

Players will compete for team and individual National Racquetball Championships in Boys, Girls, and Overall Team Competition. Teams will consist of players in 6 singles divisions, 3 doubles divisions for boys, girls, and 3 mixed divisions. Divisions are numbered 1 thru 6 in singles and 1, 2, and 3 in doubles. The top ranked player on a team must enter Division #1, the second ranked player in Division #2, and so on. Division #6 in singles and Division #3 in all doubles events are open to all players not entered in a higher division. No two players from the same school may play in the same division, except Division #6 in singles, and Divisions #3 in all doubles events. If there are fewer than 6 players, boys or girls, on a team, divisions must be filled from the top first, that is Division #1 Singles, then Division #2 Singles, and so on.

All singles players are guaranteed 3 matches, including forfeits and/or byes. All players will earn points for their school toward the Team Championships. Players may enter 3 events; however, they must be separate events, and the 3rd event must be mixed doubles.
