Hear Ye! Hear Ye!

Tournament season is coming upon us.
The Blog Calendar has been updated with tournaments for the season

The one you really do not want to miss is our Member Tournament:
  • The Tournament is Closed to Outsiders
  • Our Club Members volunteer to make this a "Great" Tournament for all of us
  • As a Fun Tournament, you do NOT need to be a member of USAPA to participate
  • Last year 398 club members played, this year it will be most of our club
  • In your weekly round robins ask one of the players to be your partner and to sign up with you
  • Look above the Calendar and you will see a Tab for "The Members Tournament" this will provide you with all the information you need!
Mark the Date on your Calendar Registration Opens on  December 20th!

The second Great tournament is our 16th Annual Tournament - Duel in the Desert:
  • Registration has opened and it appears that most events are full as are some waiting list.
  • Do not delay, right NOW take a look to see if there is something open in your Age and skill level, or if there is room on a wait list
  • If you are not able to register, by being a volunteer, you will be part an important participant in the success of this tournament

As to the other tournaments listed on the calendar, you need to look now, to see when registration closes. Some are closing soon. Others Registration will open after the first of the year.  
In most cases, you will need to be a USAPA member to participate. Like our Duel in the Desert be prepared for the better tournaments, to close registration quickly!

THE LARGEST PAYOUT

Nationals advertised $ 75,000 in prize money. 

It always seems to be a mystery as to who got paid what.  Jennifer Lucore got the scoop!

All Open Player winners were treated equally, young or old, playing singles or doubles. Something new, they paid for 4th place! 


The player winnings per open player:



   1st place =  $ 2,250
                                 2nd place = $1,300                                 
3rd place =  $  750
 4th place =  $  400
