    Entry Deadlines

    Thursday, January 17, 2019 at midnight or when the draws fill.

    Entry Fee

    Entry fees are built into the package deals for accommodations, but if players strictly wish to only pay for tournament fees entry fee is $135 per player or $270 per doubles team.

    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.

    • Individual Sign up Fee - $135

    Refund Policy

    Full refunds are given up to four weeks of the 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 whatsoever.

    Draws Available

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

    Maximum Teams

    A maximum of 32 teams will be allowed in each of the draws, Womens, and Mixed.

    How Double Teams Can Be Formed?

    All teams are made up of just two people. You and your partner will play all your matches together all weekend long. One of the best part of Racquet War's waterfall format is the ability for players to partner up with anyone at any level. For example, if you have a NTRP USTA 3.5 rating and want to play with a good friend of your who has a NTRP USTA 4.5 rating you can do so. The format (described below) of the tournament ends up putting you and your partner in the correct bracket for your level. So while we do collect your NTRP rating, it doesn't matter whatsoever in who your partner is.

    Format

    There will be a limited number of registrations available with a maximum 32 double teams in each of the draws, Womens and Mixed Doubles. All other 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 levels. 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 whatsoever and can partner up with whoever they wish, and 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, Womens or Mixed Doubles as that in itself will be a ton of tennis for the weekend.
