    Entry Deadlines

    Thursday, October 5, 2017 at midnight, or if draws fill.

    Entry Fee

    Entry fees are built into the package deals for accommodations, but if players strictly wish to only pay for tournament fees entry fee is $100 per player or $200 per doubles teams. Full refunds are given up to two weeks of the events. Once within two weeks of the event no refunds will be given.

    Players may sign up as individuals if they do not want to put together their own team. We will match up these players together and form teams.

    Individual Sign up Fee - $100

    Draws Available

    Women's, Men's, and Mixed Doubles. (Since we are not actually running the tournament by NTRP levels, all levels are allowed.)

    Format

    There will be a limited number of registrations available with a maximum 64 double teams in each of the three draws, Women's, Men's, and Mixed Doubles. If for some reason we do go higher than the 64 teams, we will take the highest combined ranking of all the teams over 64 and those teams will receive byes from the waterfall draws. All other 64 teams will start out in a waterfall bracket (see example of a waterfall bracket on the Rules and Regulations page found below). In the waterfall bracket, all teams will play two 8 game no ad pro sets to determine each doubles team competitive levels. After the two rounds of 8 game pro sets each team will play a minimum of two regular scoring matches with a tiebreaker used as a 3rd set if needed. For all teams receiving byes from the waterfall bracket, they will be guaranteed a minimum of three regular scoring matches. With this unique format, players do not have to worry about NTRP rating whatsoever and can partner up with whoever they wish, and the double teams end up playing against other double teams of similar skill in their final bracket. Players will only have the option of playing in one draw, Men's Women's or Mixed Doubles as that in itself will be a ton of tennis for the weekend.
