The TGCA Racquetball League

PLEASE NOTE: due to recent AHS restrictions on fitness and sport in Alberta, the TGCA Racquetball league has been discontinued until 2021. Please email if you have any concerns or questions. 

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

This Fall/Winter League must operate within the AHS regulations for “mini-leagues” which mean that there will be no more than 50 players in the league. 

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. 

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 strongly encouraging all league players to pay their fees online. Online registration will open later this week. If you aren’t sure how to do this, please send an email to Vanessa, and she’ll be happy to help you get the fees squared away. 

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. 14 – Dec. 21. No league on Thanksgiving Oct. 12

Wednesdays, 5:15 – 8:45, Sept. 9 – Dec. 16. No league on Remembrance Day, Nov. 11

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.

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

There are two leagues per year, one in January and one in Sept. 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.

If you are new to the league, or for more information, contact league leader, Jerry Kwasnitza,

Registration is now open, and Fall/Winter Racquetball League will begin on September 09, 2020. Please note that you need a valid TGCA membership to register for this league, and Jerry Kwasnitza, league leader, must be notified if you are new to the league in order to add you to the schedule.
