Before we get into the new IRT season (and the draws for Atlanta are already up, preview coming tomorrow), I wanted to wrap-up last season with the notification that we have some annual files that we update at the end of each season. I meant to post this more towards the end of the IRT season in June, but its been such a busy summer that I never got to it. So now with the first 2019-20 event days away, here’s a quick recap of where we are.
– http://rball.pro/1BF3BA is a direct link to the Year Ending standings for last season.
– http://rball.pro/E79E17 is the Season Summary report per player, a nice query summarizing the Wins/Finals/Semis/etc per player on tour.
– http://rball.pro/6545A5 is the Season Seed Report, a great report showing how players’ seeds varied throughout the year.
The Static links are now updated with 2018-19 results (all of these are located at the bottom of the Report Selection Page for each tour):
– List of Year End title winners: http://www.proracquetballstats.com/irt/year_end_titles.html
– Counts of Titles: http://www.proracquetballstats.com/irt/number_of_titles.html
– List of Major Title winners: http://www.proracquetballstats.com/irt/major_titles.html
– Tour History: http://www.proracquetballstats.com/irt/tour_history.html
– Season by Season summary: http://www.proracquetballstats.com/…/year_end_summaries.html
We’ve already seen a ton of news items too since the end of last season:
– new website www.irttour.com
– Hiring of Aimee Roehler Ruiz to do Social Media
– Naming of Pablo Fajre to direct both streaming and satellite events
– The official return of Andy Kulback to tour management
And the schedule is looking fantastic. Last season there were 9 events. Already the IRT schedule has 11 planned Tier 1 or Grand Slam events with a 12th likely coming soon for sure, and they havn’t event started really working on the spring schedule yet. So things are looking really promising for the new season already.
Can’t wait for the first Tier 1 this coming weekend!
