Racquetball Tournament Comes To The Port Hawkesbury Civic Centre

On January 14 and 15th, E-Force a leader in Racquetball Technology, will be sponsoring a Singles and Doubles Racquetball Tournment in Port Hawkesbury. The tournment will be held at the Port Hawkesbury Civic Centre, with sessions taking place on Friday January 14th from 6-10pm and on Saturday January 15th from 8am to 8pm. Deadline for registration is January 11, 2011. The tournament will cover all skill levels from novice to pro, from juniors to masters. Organizers expect approximately 40 entrants to take part, coming in from across the Maritimes for the tournment. Anyone wishing to learn more about Racquetball and its rules can attend a free clinic which will take place at the Civic Centre on January 14th at 4pm. The Civic Centre which is a new court for Racquetball is considered to be the best facility east of Montreal for the sport, due to its high glass walls which provide great visibility. The January Tournment in Port Hawkesbury will be the prelude event for the National Championship Tournament which will take place in Antigonish at St. FX and at the Civic Center Port Hawkesbury from May 22th to 28th and is expected to draw 250 participants from across Canada. The top participants in the National Championship will compete at the Civic Centre in Port Hawkesbury which will have judges present from the Canadian National Team. Tournament winners will become part of the National Team and take part in international events. The last time the National Championships took place in Nova Scotia was in Halifax in 1979.
