Join us for the annual ACTA Winter Mixed Doubles Tournament at the Arlington YMCA!

Registration is open NOW – http://www.eventbrite.com/e/winter-mixed-doubles-tournament-february-22nd-tickets-10598122269?aff=eorg. This social tournament will be held on Saturday, February 22 from 7PM – 11:30PM. We will have light snacks and drinks to enjoy.

There will be 3 divisions:

Mixed 7.0 (e.g., one USTA 3.5 male and one USTA 3.5 female)
Mixed 8.0
Mixed 8.5 and over

If a player does not have a USTA rating but plays ACTA, A league is equivalent to 4.0/4.5 and B/C league is equivalent to 4.0/3.5.

Tickets:

-If you have a partner, please have one person purchase a MIXED ticket ($40). This includes a ticket for you and your partner. We only need one persons name per team for the sign up on Evenbrite

-If you have a partner and you both want to pay separately on Eventbrite, please both purchase a SINGLE ticket ($20) and email armstrongvt@gmail.com with your partners name

Match Format:

We will put each team into a grouping and play round robin matches to decide who will make the second round bracket to play a traditional tournament format. You will be guaranteed a few matches this way.

Round robin play will likely be timed while tournament play will be 8 game pro-set, regular scoring (including add). First to 8 games, win by 2 (you can win 9-7). If tied at 8-8 play, play a regular tie breaker (first to 7 points, win by 2 points). Subject to change based on number of registrations.

Date: Saturday, February 22, 2014 7PM-11:30PM.

Location: Arlington YMCA indoor tennis courts. See map provided for directions.
