Victorian Grand Prix Graded Racquetball Circuit
Squash & Racquetball Victoria coordinates the Victorian Grand Prix Racquetball Circuit, incorporating 5 tournaments comprising both singles and doubles events and with grades for all standards of racquetball players. The player with the highest number of points (points allocation listed below) in their grade at the completion of the circuit events (provided they have played at least 50% of the available tournaments in their grade and are a registered Squash & Racquetball Victoria member) is recognised as that year's Victorian Grand Prix Racquetball Circuit Champion for that particular grade. Winners are presented with a trophy at the following year's Squash & Racquetball Victoria AGM and Awards Night.
