ESRA Autumn Finals ALL Grades (and G1 R14 completion)

The ESRA Committee is working to hold Autumn Pennant Grand Finals on Mon 12 July:
[and the VIC Open Racquetball Committee is planning to conduct the 2021 event on Sat 17 – Sun 18 July at Mountain District (Genesis Wantirna)]

Finalists for Grades 2,3 & 4 are determined, but this is not the case for Grade 1.
With one rubber to be completed from a Rd 13 Match and Rd 14 to be played all seven teams can make the finals.

Court availability next week commencing Mon 21st JUNE is limited:
MCC … closed to Squash & Racquetball
MD … closed to Squash & Racquetball
Kooyong ….closed to Squash & Racquetball

Westerfolds … open
Tonic … open
Lilydale … open
Cranbourne … open

We are working with our Grade 1 players to complete Rd 14 next week so that
Elimination Finals for Grades 1 & 3 can be played on Mon 28th June
Then followed by Semi Finals for ALL Grades on Mon 5th JULY
and Grand Finals on Mon 12th JULY.

PLAYING SCHEDULE

  • Week of Mon 21st – G1 to complete R14 using whatever Courts are open
  • Mon 28th June – Elimination Finals for Grades 1 & 3
  • Mon 5th JULY – Semi Finals for ALL Grades
  • Mon 12th JULY – Grand Finals for ALL Grades
  • (Sat\Sun 17\18th JULY – VIC OPEN Racquetball Tournament)

This timetable is based on current VIC GOV rules and is, of course, subject to change if circumstances change.
We are hopeful that venue density limits will be eased in coming weeks so that we may run a “traditional” Grand Final night involving all grades with players, referees, spectators, supper and presentations.

Venues for all Finals will be notified as soon as we know what courts are available to us for each week.

Grades 2, 3 & 4 Rds 14 – 15
Venue restrictions make it impractical to complete all matches and ladders after Rd 13 make it unnecessary.

Finals venues, match-ups and refereeing assignments will be announced as soon as it is possible to do so

Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.
We hope to see you on Grand Final night.

Sincerely,
The ESRA Committee
