Ideally, RR groups will have 3 to 5 players, and the top player will advance to the SE.

All matches are best-of-five 11-point games. Please check in at the registration desk at least 15 minutes prior to the start time of your first event, otherwise you may get defaulted. You only need to check in once, even if you have multiple events starting at different times. Some events may finish in the evening. All decisions of the tournament committee are final. RATINGS: For the purposes of event eligibility and seeding, the highest rating from your USATT rating, USATT League rating, NCTTA rating or Ratings Central rating will be used (Note: the ratings other than Ratings Central rating will be deducted 200 points). If you do not have one of those ratings thenyou may be given an estimated rating, othewise you are"unrated". All matches will be rated by Ratings Central. Ratings will be available about a week after the tournament at www.ratingscentral.com UNRATED PLAYERS: If you do not have a USATT-related rating or a Ratings Central rating, then you are"unrated". The tournament is designed to accommodate players of all levels; unrated players are encouraged to enter. Unfortunately, unrated players will not advance to the single-elimination bracket even if you win your group in the Under 1200 through Under 2000 singles. You will advance, if you win, in the Open, and Unrated. You do not have to enter the Unrated event, but you must enter at least one singles event other than the Unrated event. We suggest you enter two singles event, otherwise your resulting rating is likely to be less accurate. If you have no idea what your level is, we suggest you enter the Unrated Singles and Under 1200 events. The purpose of these rules is to make the tournament fair to rated players, while providing the opportunity for unrated players to play rated players. After you play in your first tournament you will become rated and be able to advance in any division that you play in in the future! Go to top
