This will be a tournament for everyone – PongPlanet members and non-members alike. The focus of the tournament is to create a fun and friendly atmosphere, promote doubles table tennis and strengthen our PongPlanet community.
The cost will be $8 for members and $14 for non-members. The party room will be available for players to relax and enjoy. Players are allowed to eat and drink in the party room. You can also bring food to share if you want. We will start with paper sign-ups and eventually transition to online sign-ups.
Come in and meet other table tennis enthusiasts, have some fun, and get some exercise. We will have doubles tournament prizes for winning groups every three months.
Group A Players – Players who have an estimated rating of 1700+
Group B Players – Players who have an estimated rating of 1400-1700
Group C Players – Players who have an estimated rating of 1000-1400
Group D Players – Players who have an estimated rating of under 1000
Preferred Groupings A/D and B/C. We will do our best not to combine A/A or D/D. The pair that wins the most matches will win the tournament. There will be 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place finishes. Teams with ties will play one game to determine the winner.
We will use USATT ratings for the purpose of placing players in a group. For players who do not have a USATT rating, we will determine your level and place players where appropriate. Participating in the doubles tournament will not affect your USATT ratings. Tournament Directors will determine all groupings.
