Know the rules! recent racquetball tournament escapade

Postby grossgary on Wed Oct 23, 2013 8:24 pm

Was playing a Racquetball Pro-Stop recently. We split 2-2 and went to a 5th game tie breaker to 11. I served at 10-10 and won the point for 11-10...and walked off the court in victory. Until they told me that the rules were recently changed to win by 2, I hadn't played a Pro Stop in years and didn't know. Ha! So I serve at 11-10 and would have won that point and the match...but I dove and my goggles flew off (was very sweaty), which is an automatic avoidable hinder...so it was a side-out instead of a point - he won 13-11. LOL

When he went up 12-11 I shook his hand, "Great match man!"
He said, "It's win by 2 remember?"
I replied, "I know, but after that last episode..."

Pro-Stop losers drop down to a consolation bracket which I won and took home some $$$.
