The next summer open will take place on Saturday July 6h, 2019 at the Eola Community Center in Aurora, IL. The venue is located at 555 S. Eola Rd. Aurora, IL 60504.
JOOLA will be the sponsor of this tournament.
We will be playing with a new and improved JOOLA Prime ball.
Tournament will have rating restricted format, which means that players will be allowed to enter only the events which have higher rating limit then their current rating. Current rating will be the rating a player has on June, 29th 2019. Below is a list of events and prize money/trophies.
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.
The Eola Community Center is located at 555 S. Eola Rd., Aurora, IL 60504.
The venue will be setup with 12 tables and each court will be fully barriered. Courts are 16 ft x 38 ft.
After the LED lights have been installed, the light strength has been measured on both sides of each table with a dedicated meter and it showed readings between 617 and 916 Lux with an average of 800 Lux.
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.
