Blitz Tournament – Friday, October 12

Want a quickie? Something that will just take a moment of your precious time, give you immense pleasure to boot, and if your form is good enough, a nice little reward at the end? You do? Then I’m happy to accommodate your deepest desires! Grab your squash racquet, shoot me an e-mail and enter the Blitz Tournament on October 12!

All that is required of you is roughly 2 to 2 and a half hours, the willingness to scuttle around a squash court for a few games against opponents who you may have never competed against before, and a craving for downing a few brewskis in between. (You are not obliged to blitz the brewskis!) Not too much to ask now, is it?

And for those who think that they are not good enough to compete, the handicaps handed out to the stronger players do make it rather difficult for them. Only one top seeded player has won this tournament in nine attempts.

So how does it work? Well, in short, you’ll be placed in a group of 4 or 5, play a round robin of one game to 15 points, the top 2 winners of each group move on to a knock-out draw where the top 3 place getters receive a prize. Seem simple enough? Click on the poster for a slightly more detailed explanation.

Now, even though the games go fairly quickly in this event – hence the name – we can only accommodate a maximum of 40 players. Otherwise the Blitz Tournament will turn into an all-nighter. But we do require a minimum of 16 to make it worth the effort to run it at all. Get your name in to me no later than Wednesday, October 10. Quickly. Come on… what are you waiting for? It’s the perfect warm-up to a Friday night on the town to get blitzed.
