Mark your calendars and plan to attend what promises to be one of your favorite tournaments of the season. All age divisions will compete under one roof.

Morning wave will begin play at 8:00 AM.
Afternoon wave is scheduled to begin at 2:30 PM (All teams including work teams should arrive at courts early. If court is empty, you may begin your match up to 30 minutes early. This will help courts to finish at an earlier time Saturday night)
Wave times will be posted the week of the tournament.
All divisions will play pool play on Saturday with playoffs on Sunday.
Tiebreakers will only be played if teams are in contention to enter gold playoff bracket. Teams must be tied in matches and sets to play a tiebreaking set. This keeps a team from being eliminated from the gold bracket on point differentials.
Playing times and court assignments will be available at www.advancedeventsystems.com. These will be posted on the week of the tournament.
Vendors will be located in the play area and will be open Friday 4:00-8:00 PM and during play time on Saturday and Sunday.
