The fifth annual River Rollout Doubles Racquetball Tournament will take place on Saturday, Nov. 2, at SportsBarn East. Proceeds from the charity racquetball competition will benefit The Sharon Thorn Music Center at Orange Grove, which serves more than 700 adults and children with intellectual and developmental disabilities in Chattanooga and surrounding communities.
Since the addition of The Sharon Thorn Music Center, Orange Grove Center has been better able to equip its music center, and to provide enriching cultural and therapeutic music services to individuals served by the Center. Funds from River Rollout will allow Orange Grove to continue to support the program, with state-of-the-art technology, like SoundBeam, which individuals use to convert movements into sound. The organization’s chorus and dancers are given opportunities to perform locally at events such as the annual Christmas at the Courthouse.
The tournament will use a Round Robin format with two events and multiple brackets for different skill levels. There will be four divisions; the A and C divisions will begin at 8 a.m., and the Elite and B divisions will begin at 1 p.m. There is an entrance fee of $40 for one event and an additional $20 to enter a second event with a limit of two events. Food and beverages will be provided, and prizes will be given to the first and second place finishers in all divisions.
Entries fees must be received by Oct. 29. USAR rules apply. Register at www.sportsbarn.net. SportsBarn East is at 6148 Lee Highway, and is accessible from I-75 and Highway 153.
