Wanted to revise this page and others underneath it for my new PHP layout and get rid of some of the old content. It's amazing how much crap just accumulates on a site.
Tournament Forms (8/14/07)
Added a new scorecard from Gearbox Racquetball. It was developed by Jason Wright.
Tournament Forms (5/20/07)
I added a new drawseheet I developed in Excel. It automatically seeds the first round based on sixteen players and has drop down lists for subsequent rounds. Before I typed in cell references which was a bit slow and prone to errors. I also reduced the size of my logo, so it can be used by other people easier.
Seeded Drawsheet of 16 (Excel 2003 format, right-click link to Save As)
Used Excel's drop down lists to ease data entry and formatted the round of sixteen according to a standard draw. So tournament directors can just type the sixteen players into the list on the left and have the first and subsequent rounds prepared from the drop downs. Even though it's protected, there's still plenty of space to add sponsors, tournament details, or other information. I hope you find it useful and would love to hear your feedback. Posted 5/20/07.
Score sheet (2 sheets per page)
When I played my first tournament, I used a similar score sheet and was pretty
impressed with it's functionality. Basically a referee would turn the
score sheet around for the person serving and record the player's
score just by ticking off a number, so you know who was serving at all
times and didn't need to remember the score. Can also track timeouts,
appeals, and the results of five games on one form.
Sheet of 16 (Standard Single Elimination)
Uses Adobe Acrobat form fields for title, subtitle, and all the
players names for each match. So the idea is to start out with the
first round already typed in. Then you can update the rest after the
tournament and save the form data or create a fixed PDF file or image.

Jason Wright contacted me through Meet and Play to see if I can post a scorecard he developed for Gearbox Racquetball.
I think it is really important to capture our time playing racquetball,
so years from now we can look back and think about our friends and our time
together. Anyway this section started in 2003 with Rich's Racquetball Ladder
Basically an account of each major tournament I've attended. Sometimes I
discover something about myself others just belly aching over a loss. I try
to capture the feel of the tournament both in words and with pictures.
State Singles at Classic in Fairfield NJ
My first tournament, my God was I nervous and it showed on everything
I did. I played C and D and was eliminated from both in the first
round. Did not take that many pictures and many of those were not
Halloween Havoc at Classic in Fairfield NJ
A better tournament where my wife and first-timer Leigh Marshall came
along. Nerves were more under control and even some anger showed
through instead of plain fear. It was a dreaded round robin tournament
so got some exposure to different players but 5th in points.
Cook/Douglas Inter. Doubles
Our first win as a partnership, Tony and I won after
a grueling tie breaker. The game plan format was introduced and after
every match we revised it for the playoffs. I also write about my
singles experience and how I had to lose to win. Not a bad read.
