NOTE: Although the OPEN events are indeed "open" to anyone, regardless of age or skill, the events are suggested for skill levels 3.5 & above with brackets limited to the first 10 (ten) qualifying* teams to complete registration in each sub-event. *Qualification preference (when registration exceeds the bracket limit) given to teams of 3.5 skill and above that have completely registered prior to deadline.

All bracketing will be determined by the youngest of the two in a doubles pair and then by the highest skill level, of the two in a particular doubles pair or team. Age based on/determined as of Tournament date. Age/Skill groups may be combined when brackets are smaller than necessary to give players an optimal number of games or matches. Other than OPEN events, participants are guaranteed at least 3 games in their respective sub-event pools/brackets.

We may post a list of those in need along with those that may be available for partnering, however we may not have the time to effectively search to find partners for those in need.
