Doubles Season Is Upon Us (2016-2017)

In the winter, racquetball courts fill up as outdoor play winds down.  To energize players in these more crowded conditions, doubles tournaments bloom.  Between November and February, states will hold their state doubles championships, regions will hold their regional championships, and the US National Doubles Championship will also be held.
