Additional Information
Tournament Format:
*Events with 8+ Teams: Teams will be divided into two or more seeded pools and the top teams in each pool will advance to a playoff round to determine medal winners.
*Events with 7 Teams or Less: Round Robin for events with a small number of teams.
*Skill Level: (Ratings will be verified by the club at point of registration). Players with a DUPR rating must use that rating. Players with a USAPA UTPR rating but no DUPR rating must use that rating. Players with neither rating may self-rate within reason. The tournament reserves the right to move players and teams between skill-level brackets/events.
*Registering Together As A Team (TIP) : For a guaranteed spot in mixed doubles or doubles, the second partner must sign up within 5 days of the first partner's registration. Incomplete teams will be moved to the waiting list after that. Once the second partner registers, they will be moved back into the event IF THERE ARE SPOTS LEFT IN THE TOURNAMENT AND THE EVENT.
NOTE: Franklin temporary nets to be set up. Balls and demo paddles available.
Safe Tournament Environment:
*Spectators must sit in designated viewing areas. Bring your own foldable chair for best viewing experience.

Refund Policy
*NO refunds for ANY reason.
*Replacement Players/Subbing* Entry fees may be transferred to a replacement player/sub of similar skill level at any time up through the morning of the event.
For Example: A player won’t be able to attend the tournament but has a replacement/sub. Can the replacement/sub take my spot? Yes, only if the player is of similar level, then he can take your spot for tournament play; payment would need to be worked out amongst yourselves.
*Refunds will be processed after the tournament is over and can take several weeks to process.
