Color Team Tourney … Our annual fun team tourney is Tuesday, December 12th from 3-7 p.m. with a potluck in the Marinette auditorium. All of the information is posted on our webpage and signups are handled on the webpage through SignUp Genius. Registration is only $2. Here’s some basic information about this event…. Please read this and then get registered as soon as possible.
This event is not really a tournament. This is more like a “ladder” event limited to the first 88 entries. Each entrant will be placed on one of four teams… each team will wear a specific color. Similar to the ladder, all games will played against players of similar ability but they will be on one of the other 3 teams. For example, Marcia on the red team will play with Pat from the blue team and play against John from the white team who is playing with George on the gray team. So you will want to cheer for players wearing your “team color”.
Each player will play only 5 games … 13 min each … in the 2 ½ hrs of play time. The first 44 players will be assigned a court for game 1 while the other 44 cheer for their teammates. Then the next 44 players go onto the courts. Players rotate this way until all players have completed their 5 games.
After all games have been played, the points will be captured for each team and the winning “team of 22 players” will be announced. So please understand that we need lots of players of all levels to even out the teams.
