Racketball Mix-ins are held every few months and are open to anyone.
This presents a perfect opportunity for members to invite friends and family to come along and give Racketball a go in a friendly relaxed atmosphere.
There is no set format for these events, which are normally held from 10:00 am to Midday, but are designed to be suitable for players of all abilities and fitness.
Generally, on one court, for those of a competitive nature, there will be first to five points, winner stays on, and you carry your score forward.
On other courts there could be games of “Cut Throat”, “Dominion”, “Fast & Furious” taking place, or just plain vanilla singles or doubles games.
Whatever you fancy taking part in they are always good fun and a great way to meet other Racketball members.
The Moscrop Handicap Cup and Dinner is played in either August or September and is played in a box league format, with the winner and runner-up of each box going through to the knock-out stages, but on different sides of the draw.
It is the best of one game, the winner being the first to score 15-points under normal Racketball rules.
However, only being the best of one game, if the score is tied at 14-all then the winner must win by two clear points.
With it being a handicap, with players being on a negative score to start, then this can result in very close matches for everyone who takes part.
The winner gets three-points, and if the loser scores 12 or more, then they receive a bonus point.
After that it is a straight knock-out, with the winner receiving the cup and the runner-up a plaque.
In 2019 the post competition dinner was a BBQ held in the club’s grounds, with one or two drinks in the bar afterwards.
Inter-club competitions are something that was added to the calendar in 2019.
The first one was BLTS & RC took a team of 8 players down to the brand new leisure centre in Dover to take on the racketballers down there.
It was a great, friendly competition that was followed by a few beers and fish & chips after.
