Sweet 16 Pickleball Tournament – Saturday, February 17, 2018
Montrose is hosting our 3rd Sweet 16 Pickleball Tournament on Saturday, February 17th. Registration is now open by calling customer service at 970-249-7705. Come and play pickleball in our new gyms. We encourage players from Montrose and surrounding towns to come play with us. The registration fee is $10. Prizes and snacks provided.
Sign up for 3.0 and below, 3.5 and 4.0+ divisions. The 3.0 and 3.5 will play from 9:00 am – 12:00 pm and 4.0+ will play from 12:00 pm – 3:00 pm.
A key feature which makes this format attractive is that players do not need to find a partner to participate. You rotate and get to play with a variety of partners. It is fast paced and FUN!
Here is a summary of how it works:
1. Players sign up as individuals, in advance. Since we need exactly 16 players per event, those who sign up must commit to show up. We will have one or two alternates in case of a last minute cancellation.
2. Every player gets to play with 6 other players.
3. We will post the rotation schedule. The schedule shows you who your partner and opponents will be. You will play 6 games and have 2 byes.
4. These games are timed. You will play 15 minutes, and then rotate with a new partner and new opponents. The event lasts a little over 2 hours.
5. Final score is by “win” / “loss” per game. We will also track points in case of a tie. The individual player’s wins are totaled at the end of the games to determine the winners. In case of a tie, the player with the least number of points scored against them wins.
The first 16 who register will get to play. We have a lot of courts so we can run more than one group of 16 in each division if there is the need.
If you call to register and are told the division is full, be sure to get put on the waiting list as we need two alternates and I will run another division if we have enough players.
I need a few volunteers to help run the tournament. Let me know if you can help. I can be reached at 970-252-4884 or by cell at 970-209-1557. Register soon!
