We are trying to get sponsorship from Newgy Inc. and Paddle Palace.
Tournament will have rating restricted format.
Unrated players may enter any event but will NOT advance out of the round robin round of the event to the single elimination round. Unrated players are strongly encouraged to obtain an estimated rating so they are properly challenged by players of similar skill level. Otherwise they will be overwhelmed or not sufficiently challenged (i.e. bored). Estimated rating can be obtained from a coach or other players who participate in USATT sanctioned tournaments by observing unrated player at play.
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 being delivered. Number of spots is limited so consider registering early. To see who registered so far please check the online registration page.
Tournament operations will be using OmniPong software so that you ratings will be updated a few of days after the tournament. There will also be a tournament report with pictures published on this website.
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.
