TOURNAMENT DETAILS

The goal of our Organizing Committee this year is to provide a more competitive Tournament by dividing the 20 registered teams in each event into two Divisions.

Division seeding will be based on registration self-ratings and preference.  A Tournament Panel will review all submissions and use their discretion to create the most competitive Divisions possible.

The Format for both the Ladies and Mens Events will be identical and all teams will have a minimum of 5 games.

Each 10 team Division will be divided into two 5 team Pools and a team’s Round Robin Record will determine their placement in the Playoff Round which will feature crossover games between the 2 Pools to determine the Gold, Silver & Bronze winners.

The Top 10 Seeded Teams will compete for the ONIX Division Championship (Target ability Level 3.5 – 5.0) while the other 10 teams will compete for the Premium Pickleball Division Championship (Target ability level 3.0 -3.5) with Gold, Silver & Bronze being awarded in each.

Most Playoff Round matches will be best 2 out of 3 games to 11 points (win by 2)

Light snacks will be provided in the Paddletek Lounge area

 

 

 

Division Seedings will be published on or about July 30th ($25 Entry Fee per player is due within 48 hrs of Division Publishing to confirm your participation)
