Congratulations to the doubles champion team of Don Jackson and John Falco (3558). LRTTC's monthly tournament for this month was doubles-only format, and Don and John came out on top. They defeated two other teams in the round robin group. Tom Fox and Jeff Pratt (3368) finished in second place while Mike Lauro and Mark Taylor (2606) came in third.
Next month's tournament will be on Saturday, August 9, 2014 at LRTTC's regular playing facility in Little Rock. We return to regular play in Little Rock later this month on Tuesday, July 29, 2014 at 6:00 pm.

Welcome to the July 2014 monthly tournament hosted at LRTTC.
ATTENTION: Due to our temporary relocation, the monthly club tournament for July will be doubles, held at the Duran Youth Center in Sherwood at 1:00 p.m. on Sunday July 13. Each doubles team can only have one player with a club rating of over 1600. Any team with a player with a club rating of under 1000 will receive a two point per game handicap. See http://lrttc.org/play/player-ratings/club-ratings for the "League Ratings" that will be used for team formation and seeding. There will be no entry fee this month, and so no cash prizes.
