FORMAT AND SCHEDULE: All events are Round Robin to Single Elimination, and the number of entries for each event will be capped at 24 to prevent delays as seen in past tournaments. Ideally, RR groups will have 3 to 5 players, and the top player will advance to the SE. However, the tournament committee reserves the right to make changes in the format depending on time constraints. All matches are best-of-five 11-point games, except for all the matches in the Open event, which is best-of-seven 11-point. Please check in at the registration desk at least 15 minutes prior to the start time of your first event. You only need to check in once, even if you have multiple events starting at different times. All events will finish in the evening. All decisions of the tournament committee are final. RATINGS: For the purposes of event eligibility and seeding, we will use your Ratings Centralrating if you have one. Failing that, we will use your USATT rating, USATT League rating or NCTTA rating, if you have one. Failing that, you are “unrated”. All matches will be rated by Stiga World Ratings powered by Ratings Central. Ratings will be available about a week after the tournament at www.ratingscentral.com UNRATED PLAYERS: If you do not have a USATT-related rating or a Ratings Central rating, then you are “unrated”. The tournament is designed to accommodate players of all levels; unrated players are encouraged to enter. Unfortunately, unrated players will not advance to the single-elimination bracket even if you win your group in the Under 1200 through Under 1800 singles. You will advance, if you win, in the Open, Unrated, and Under 4000 Doubles. If you are playing with a rated doubles partner, your doubles team is considered unrated. You do not have to enter the Unrated event, but you must enter at least one singles event other than the Unrated event. We suggest you enter two singles event, otherwise your resulting rating is likely to be less accurate. If you have no idea what your level is, we suggest you enter the Unrated Singles and Under 1200 events. The purpose of these rules is to make the tournament fair to rated players, while providing the opportunity for unrated players to play rated players. After you play in your first tournament you will become rated and be able to advance in any division that you play in in the future! Go to top
