The TGCA Racquetball League

The TGCA Racquetball League Fall/Winter 2021 – Registration now open until August 27!

Our racquetball league has been going strong for decades, and there’s always room for more players!

COVID-19 restrictions are currently not in effect at the TGCA, however if new restrictions are announced by the province or city, all players are expected to adhere to them. See more about this in the terms and conditions at the bottom of the page. If you aren’t feeling well and are displaying symptoms of COVID-19, please do not enter the TGCA premises and contact the league leader, Tyler Donaldson.

All four courts and the change rooms will be open on league nights to league players. Appropriate sanitizing and cleaning will take place before and after the leagues time slot is up, and no other racquetball will be played during this time. 

Days & Times:

The leagues are on Monday and Wednesday every week from 5:00 pm until 9:00 pm (depending on how many players sign up (sometimes there is a 4:30 start time). Some players only play Mondays, some only play Wednesdays, but a lot play both nights.

Mondays, 5:15 – 8:45, Sept. 13 – Dec. 20. No league on Thanksgiving Oct. 11

Wednesdays, 5:15 – 8:45, Sept. 8 – Dec. 8.

Registration & Fees:

The cost of each league is $110 plus $10 for snacks and prizes on each windup night (for a total of $120). This is a TGCA league, so all league participants must have a valid TGCA membership to participate.

To pay and register for the day you’d like, click the Monday and/or the Wednesday buttons, add it to your cart and checkout. To register for both, you must add both to your cart. We take Visa, Mastercard, and Interac Online (TD or Royal Bank).

Players will only be added to the schedule upon successful payment of fees and league schedules will be created when all registrations are received by the league leader. 

League Structure:

There are three divisions on Mondays (A1 – Advanced, A2 – intermediate & B1 – beginner to intermediate). Wednesday has the same three plus an additional one for elite players called A1 Plus.

There are two leagues per year, one in January and one in September. Each league runs for 14 weeks, the last of which is a fun night which we call “windup”. There is a semi playoff between the top four players in a division, then players five to eight and so on.

Unfortunately, people cannot drop in as all schedules are set. If anyone gets hurt of drops out, there will be replacement players sought.

The leagues are open to both male and female players.

All players typically have their own equipment, but you can also rent goggles and racquets at The 56. Inquire with the bartender.

Please note that you need a valid TGCA membership to register for this league. Visit the membership page for more info on becoming a members and the membership overview page for managing your existing membership account.  

The TGCA racquetball league credits/refunds for past season closures are settled. All players were contacted to receive any remaining refunds in Spring 2021 and any remaining credits are now expired. This means that all league players are expected to pay the full fees to register in the Fall/Winter 2021 league seasons. No exceptions.

The TGCA will expect all league participants to agree to the terms and condition of the league, which can be found at the bottom of this page as well as in the payment page when paying online. 

The TGCA is asking all league players to pay their fees online. If you aren’t sure how to do this, please send an email to Vanessa, v.gillard@tgcacalgary.com and she’ll be happy to help you get your fees squared away.
