This was the first national tournament for players 45+ years of age. Since that first event, the size of the group has exploded to a record high number of male and female members.
Each year, the NMRA hosts two major championship tournaments - a National Championship (scheduled in March) and an International Championship (scheduled in July). Competition at all NMRA Championships is offered in singles, doubles and mixed doubles. Divisions are in five-year increments starting with age 45+.
All NMRA tournaments are full round-robin format and self-refereed. Our format ensures you are never eliminated from play in an NMRA tournament and that sportmanship and friendship are more important than winning. If you a FIRST TIME player, we do not require you join the NMRA. However, you must be an active member of the USAR National Organization.
The average number of players at our tournaments is 190. Play always begins on Wednesday and ends on Saturday of the scheduled event. Our events are designed to be family oriented and we welcome family members and guests. Our daily hospitality, lunch, and Friday night banquet are legendary on the tournament circuit.
If you are no longer interested in tournament competition or possibly no longer an active player, think about supporting the future of masters' racquetball by joining the NMRA.
