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 - $100
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.
Women's, Men's, and Mixed Doubles. (Since we are not actually running the tournament by NTRP levels, all levels are allowed.)
A maximum of 64 teams will be allowed in each of the draws, Men's, Women's, and Mixed. Could possibly take more teams in one or two draws.
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.
There will be a limited number of registrations available with a maximum 64 double teams in each of the three draws, Women's, Men's, and Mixed Doubles. If for some reason we do go higher than the 64 teams, we will take the highest combined ranking of all the teams over 64 and those teams will receive byes from the waterfall draws. All other 64 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. For all teams receiving byes from the waterfall bracket, they will be guaranteed a minimum of three regular scoring matches. 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, Men's Women's or Mixed Doubles as that in itself will be a ton of tennis for the weekend.
