How does it work?

Teams can have up to 15 squash and/or racquetball participants - of any ability, this is about participation - and at least one player from the team must be on court at all times. Play will be conducted in 13 minute blocks and scoring will be point-a-rally. At the conclusion of each 13 minute block, the player with the most points must record the score on the official scoresheet, there is a 2 minute break and then the next 13 minute block will commence. It is up to the Team Captain to establish the strategy and style of play for their team and set the team playing roster -participants can play for as little as thirteen minutes or up to two hours at a time. As we are expecting a mix of squash and racquetball players and teams you may get the opportunity to play both sports!!

Player Pack, Trophies and Prizes

All registered participants will receive a player pack containing the official event t-shirt and other giveaways. 'Spot prizes' will be randomly drawn every hour during the event with some great prizes already donated by our sponsors.

Trophies will be awarded to:

- the winning team (this will be determined by both the total $ raised by the team as well as by total points won over the 24 hour period)

- the runner up team

- the team who raises the most $

- the individual who raises the most $

- the runner up who raises the most $

- the Youth Award - junior who raises the most $

- the Sarah Fitz-Gerald Award – for courage, enthusiasm and spirit

Staying Overnight

If you and your team want to stay at MSAC for the duration of the event, there will be a 'sleeping area' set up. You will need to bring a sleeping bag, inflatable mattress and pillow.

Refreshments

The MSAC cafe will be open for business plus a toaster, cup-a-soup, tean and coffee will be available during the period when the cafe is closed, catering both for the squash players as well as swimmers participating the Mega Swim event. Drink machines and a water fountain are also available in the squash court area. It is suggested that you bring your own refreshments.

Fundraising

This is a fundraising event for Multiple Sclerosis Australia. The venue, coordinators, prizes, etc are all being donated and it is hoped all players will fundraise for their team. Once registered, each participant will have their own web page set up by MS Australia and receive information and advice on how to do it!
