    Entry Deadlines

    Thursday August 30th, 2018 at midnight, or when draws fill. Draws filled over a month early last year.

    Packages with Accommodations

    Entry fees are built into the accommodation packages. The Clinic (Wednesday night for Women’s and Thursday night for Mixed), Players Party on Friday night, lunch on Saturday, plus our new photo package are all included.

    We also, for the first time, will be having a Racquet War Directors vs Omni Pros match, plus a One Point Tournament for all players to have their chance to win cash. This special event will take place at 7:00 pm Thursday night after the mixed clinics on Center Court. Beverages will be provided and it’s going to be a blast!

    Players may sign up as individuals if they do not want to put together their own team. We will match up these players together and form teams.

      Tournament Entry Only

      If players strictly wish to only pay for the tournament the entry fee is $110 per player or $220 per doubles team. This will not include the clinic, nor players party. They can however be added on - Clinic $25, Party $30.

    Refund Policy

    Full refunds are given up to 4 weeks prior to event. If withdrawal is made within 4 weeks but before the draws are posted a 50% refund will be given. Once the draws have been posted, or we are within two weeks of the tournament, there are no refunds.

    Draws Available

    Women's and Mixed Doubles. (Since we are not actually running the tournament by NTRP levels, all levels are allowed.)

    Maximum Teams

    A maximum of 128 Women’s teams and 32 Mixed teams.

    Format

    There will be a limited number of registrations available. All teams will start out in a waterfall bracket (see example of a waterfall bracket on the Rules and Regulations page found below). In the waterfall bracket, all teams will play two 8 game no ad pro sets to determine each doubles team competitive level. After the two rounds of 8 game pro sets each team will play a minimum of two regular scoring matches with a tiebreaker used as a 3rd set if needed. With this unique format players do not have to worry about NTRP rating and can partner up with whomever they wish. The double teams end up playing against other double teams of similar skill in their final bracket. Players will only have the option of playing in one draw, Women's or Mixed Doubles, as that in itself will be a ton of tennis for the weekend.

    Prices and Room Packages

    All packages include 3, 4, or 5 nights of accommodations, resort fees, tournament registration fees, Wednesday (Women's) and Thursday (Mixed) clinics, Thursday night special event, Friday night party tickets, all taxes, plus our new photo package. The new photo package gives you an all access pass to images taken throughout the weekend. It includes a printed photo of you and your partner, Hi-Res digital images of your group, your team and you too! Also, images from the clinic, special event, party, and the winners will be available. Images will be available for download the week following the tournament.
