Media

Media Access

Media is welcome at the tournament and the Awards Banquet. The tournament venue has limited space for cameras. The best viewing is at court level on the main court where Open level athletes will play most of their matches. 

If you wish to take photos or video, please contact us in advance whenever possible so we can ensure you have easier access to the court. 

Posted match times are approximate. A match seldom starts before its scheduled time, but can start later. This occurs more often later in the tournament when matches are more contested. 

Media are also welcome at the Awards Banquet. The awards will be presented following the meal at approximately 8pm. 

 

Interviews

Athletes, Tournament and Racquetball Canada officials are available for interviews throughout the tournament. Award recipients may be available for interviews at the Awards Banquet. 

Please contact Jan Hanson to arrange an interview. Interviews times are dependent on the athlete’s schedule of matches and generally are not available for at least an hour leading up to a match.
