On Face Book there are a number of comments with regard to the wisdom of Men and Women competing against each other!! Here are some:
Bernar Borges Hopefully one day the ISA tournaments won’t have a separate women’s division! Erik Hahmann Id like women to have the option to play against men in FSA events. I am now going to share with you a number of articles by Terry Rainwater and others regarding this topic in 2008!!
TERRY RAINWATER MAKES SOME OBSERVATIONS CHANGE CAN BE FUN!!
We need to do a lot more for our sport to attract new players and liven up the game. The “good ole boys” who want to keep it the game the “way it’s always been” need relax their control and allow those of us with ambition and ideas, to keep trying new things to liven it up!! …
The FSA needs to have more open draw tournaments… The FSA needs to get away from this Man/Woman stuff – We’re equal in this life and this sport.
The National needs more “Any Doubles”!!
We need to change the rules to allow Open Communication with our partners – yes, coaching!
AND YES, we need to play more Frame games to shorten the day/tournaments!
We need to encourage more excitement from spectators!!
C’mon! Jump in!! Don’t make me the only one with opinions! …….
