Welcome to the University of Connecticut Club Racquetball Team website! Our team has over 25 members, men and women, and the top players travel and compete at 5 tournaments over the school year. Throughout these tournaments, hosted by the Eastern Collegiate Racquetball Conference, UConn has historically placed as one of the top teams since it was created in 2008. In 2016-2017 season, we had our best season yet! In both the regular season and the regional tournament, we took first place in both the overall and women's division and second place in the men's division. Along with that we swept the floor with awards in the Team Spirit Award, the first Coach's award, MVP, Most Improved Player, and Newcomer of the Year.
We meet three times a week Mondays 5-7pm (Team One) or Mondays (7-8pm), Wednesdays from 8-10pm and Sundays from 2-5pm. (Practice times are subject to change for the 2017-2018 season). All practices are held in the Student Recreation Facility.
Our team competes in the Eastern Collegiate Racquetball Conference, which hosts four regular season tournaments each academic year and one additional regional and national tournament, both held at the end of the season. In addition, the team participates in non-collegiate tournaments where players of all ages and skill levels compete.
This year our team is proud to welcome back our coach, Scott Eliasson! A past top 30 nationally ranked player and all around great guy, Scott is in his fourth year of coaching UConn and continuously helps us sharpen our games. At the 2017 ECRC Regional Tournament, Coach Scott won the first ever ECRC Coach's Award for his hard work and dedication towards improving our team. Check out his bio!
We are always looking for new players of all skill levels in the UConn community to join us. We have both experienced and non-experienced players and we welcome everyone! If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact one of the officers. Most of us began with little to no experience and thrived within our team environment. We hope your experience with the team will be as exceptional as it has been for us. SEE YOU ON THE COURTS!!
