STTC made an awesome showing at the Sunshine State Games. There were a record number of entries in most events so the competition was tough. Some of these players are getting good. They are going to be harder to beat next year.
It was a fun weekend!

The entry fee will be $2.00.
The lower rated player in each match will receive a number of points based on the difference between each player’s USATT rating or estimated rating.
Players will play in a round robin group of 5 or less players. One game will be played with each player in the round robin group. The game will be played to 21 points with two serves each alternating. One serve each if score reaches 21-21. Player must win by two points.
If there is only one round robin then the player with the best record wins and takes 100% of the pot.
If there is more than one round robin then there will be a playoff between the winners of each round robin. First place will take 75% of the pot and second place will take 25% of the pot.
Player’s ratings will be regularly adjusted according to wins and losses.

These are a few of the service rule violations that I have observed in recent tournaments
