Thank you for those who participated at our second league.

Both doubles were very close in games. As an added bonus to rating points, the winners for doubles receive 10 points (each player) to their accumulated rating. Hope to see you next time!

New weekly leagues starting April 29

On Saturday, April 29th, the club will start hosting a new weekly league. This league will be every Saturday. Instead of handicap, we are going to play round robin groups with whichever players show up each Saturday. We will open as usual at 10 a.m. and we will start the round robin matches around 11:15, so everyone has enough time to get warmed up. After all the matches are done, practice can continue as usual until close.

We will have a club rating system from now on. If you have a USATT rating we will start with that, and the rating process is the same as if you would play any normal tournament, but it will only count for the club.

As for the format, say that we have 15 players show up for league. We would play 3 groups of 5 and play 3 out of 5 games. If you win your round robin group, the next week you have the option to move up to the next group regardless of your rating. Maybe group winners will get a bonus to their rating of 10 or 20 points.

If people want to practice instead of play the league that is okay if we have open tables, but we would really prefer getting as many people as we can to participate in the league to help it grow.
