1st Annual MRA Tournament Series for 2018-19
* * * * * * *
The MRA has been working towards creating a more competitive and inviting tournament environment for the MN racquetball community. Some details are still being worked out, but as you can see by this season's tournament schedule to the right that the MRA has added four additional one-and-a-half day tournaments. Additionally, participants will accumulate participation points for playing in each event as well as points based on where the player finishes in their division. At the end of the year, series awards will be presented to the top finishers in each designated division. Also please notice the date changes for State Singles and the Hall Of Fame events.
