Tournament Report with Photos

For the monthly LRTTC tournament held on Saturday, November 16, 2013, we had a total of 11 players in the handicap tournament. The format included a spot by the higher rated player to the lower rated player of up to 8 points with 1 point per 100 rating points difference. Games to 11, matches best 3 out of 5.

First phase was a round robin consisting of Group A with 5 players and Group B with 6 players. The top 3 of Group A and the top 4 of Group B advanced to a 7-player single elimination bracket with positions determined by blind draw.  (See the photos below for an image of the single elimination bracket results)

Congratulations to the winner and runner-up:
Mike, winner, $25 prize.
Scott, runner-up, $20 prize.

Club took in $70 of entries. Mike donated $25 winnings back to club. Total profit from the tournament was $50.

We set up 6 tables.  One table had a small court configured so that players could use the Newgy Robo Pong 1040 robot. One table was reserved for a Sherwood league match. Four tables were used for the handicap tournament.

The club also gave away a brand new Butterfly Archfilor 2-racket case and a Butterfly rubber wiper. After everyone in attendance entered the drawing, Ms. Mia Barone drew a name, and Parimal Nilangekar won the case and wiper (see photo below). Congratulations Parimal! (Now maybe he will remember to take his racket with him when he leaves the club!...just kidding Parimal!)

Thanks to everyone who contributed to making this tournament a success. We are looking forward to our next tournament on Saturday, December 14, 2013.
