Number of players who participated in leagues:
A/B League Tournament Results (Updated 7/16/03)
C/D League Tournament Results (Updated 7/28/03)
07/01/03 -- C/D Playoff Results
06/25/03 -- A/B Playoff Results
06/10/03 -- Trophies Arrived!
Basically they have free engraving and cost under $4.00 each. So it's a nice inexpensive way to congratulate the winners of the league in early July.
Each of them says "RU Racquetball 2003 Summer League 1st Place A/B (C/D) Division." Good luck in the rest of the playoffs. The smaller one being for C/Ds of course.

06/04/03 -- How to use the Reports
One of the main navigation tools for matches is the player matrix. The matrix is a series of rows and columns of players showing the wins and loses where they intersect.
Clicking on the number where the row and column intersect shows the matches between those two players only. From this view you can see the Balance of Power between the two players.
Back at the Matrix, clicking on the players name in the left hand column shows all the games the player has played to date. Also good for reviewing your incomplete matches.
-- League Deadline Today
Today is the last day for league registration. So over the weekend, I'll start putting together a playoff schedule and post it on the web or at least send out the first and second week's schedule.
-- Two Divisions
-- Current League Status
I plan on giving people until Friday, May 30th, to get on board before I start planning any schedules.
05/24/03 -- Welcome
to the Summer Leagues
Anyway I've been thinking about the format of the league for a while. I don't think it should be everyone coming in one night to play against each other. Rich already has a entire night dedicated to the ladder, not sure the administration would go for another one during the Summer.
So the format should be flexible enough for people to meet during a week and play a match. Then during the tournament we can have just the first round play and have spectators. I know it's Summer and people like to go away on vacation or just do something outside.
The format I'm envisioning:
1) Exhibition Matches: These are going on now and serve a couple of purposes. Collects data for the Power and Quarter rankings, which operates like a ladder on points. The Balance of Power graphs shows the progress of players against each other. For the League they serve as tools to make sure you're in the right division.
2) Once you're classed into a Division then we're in playoff mode. Basically you play a match against other people in the division. Once completed this will serve as a guide to tournament draw placement.
3) Tournament. I'm not expecting a draw of 16 players. I'll be thankful for eight players and maybe one or two divisions. We'll use the data collected from Exhibition and the playoffs to make a fair draw where the top two players should face each other in the final match. Also plan on having single elimination tournament and a consolation match or bracket for first round losers.
So if you want to participate send an email: firstname.lastname@example.org and include your full name, your skill level, and what days you'll like to play. Also if you want to help reserve courts or otherwise lend a hand let me know.
