Tempe, AZ, to Host 2017 USAR National Doubles

Dec 09, 2016

The 2017 USA Racquetball National Doubles Championships will be held February 8-12, 2017, in Tempe, AZ on the campus of Arizona State University. This is the sport's premiere doubles tournament and everyone is invited to play. The 50th anniversary edition of the tournament offers doubles divisions for skill, and age+skill for men and women.

New for the 50th anniversary are the following events:

  • A Special Anniversary Party that is free to all players. Revel in the history and fun of our National Doubles.

  • Heroes Divisions: Celebrating our Military and First-Responders with a lower entry fee.

  • Introducing Up/Down Wheelchair Divisions: With the help of Military Racquetball Federation, we are offering divisions that pair an able-bodied player with a Wheelchair athlete. 

  • Classic Racquet Competitions: Players are invited to have some fun and go back in time with the new Classic Racquet divisions. Racquet length is limited to 18.5 inches. Break out the iconic duds - 70's, 80's & 90's and compete for the best dressed in the divisions. Don’t have a classic racquet? Hit up your local thrift store or borrow one from the Championship desk.

There will also be live streaming of selected matches on the championship court, including the Men's and Women's U.S. Team Qualifying divisions on the IRTNetwork (www.irtnetwork.com).

The entry deadline is Tuesday, February 6, 2017. For more information about the 2017 National Doubles, click here or call: (719) 635-5396.
