Fox Valley Table Tennis Club will be holding a 2 star tournament on Saturday, October 11th, 2014 at the Eola Community Center located at 555 S. Eola Rd. in Aurora, IL. The format will be giant round robin in groups of 8, which means that players will be sorted by their rating from highest to lowest and seeded (divided) into groups of 8. Each group of 8 will have 2 tables to play on. The tournament will offer $1,300 in prize money and trophies. Below is the table indicating the amounts.
This year’s Aurora Fall Open will be sponsored by ‘Table Tennis 1 on 1’ owner Meinhard Korte. If you like to learn more about coaching offered by Meinhard please visit his website.
Another sponsor is Newgy, Inc. who has sponsored many or our past tournaments. Thanks to Newgy’s support we will have 10 additional barriers and that will let us set up for the first time fully barriered courts. This will possibly make us the only 2 star tournament in Illinois to offer such great playing conditions. To find out more about Newgy’s robots, barriers and other products please visit their website.
I think we have finally arrived at an optimal layout with bleachers in the east side of the gym, accessible easily by a walking alley and additional seating on the west side of the gym. Courts are 16 ft x 40 ft.
The light strength has been measured on both sides of each table with a dedicated meter and it showed readings between 338 and 430 Lux with an average of 380. The flooring is a sports linoleum flooring with a fairly good grip and not too hard on your feet. You are welcome to bring a towel for wetting your shoe soles if you like.
There is generous parking around park district facility but if you can’t find the spot you can also park at the adjacent church parking lot.
Online registration is available here. If you would like to send in the traditional blank entry form you can download it from here. However, those who send their registration by mail are urged to send it early because the available spots may be taken by those who register online while the mail is in the system. Number of spots is limited to 96 so consider registering early. To see who registered so far please go to OmniPong website, select Tournaments page and click ‘Players’ button on the line for this tournament.
Tournament operations will be using OmniPong software so that you ratings will be updated on first Thursday following the tournament and published in a tournament report on this website.
