SPECIAL EVENT IS FULL WITH A WAIT LIST: Jr Father/Son Event - For kids 10 & Under
Once again we will be conducting a special event for fathers and sons who are not quite ready to play in the open Father/Son division. This will be the 6th annual 10U Green-dot
Father/Son tournament. If you are a dad, who has a young son (10 & under), you are eligible to play in this event. The
results won't show up on the internet, since it is not a sanctioned event, but it is a lot of fun and should help kids get ready for playing the
main event in the future. Those interested should contact Conan Lorenzo (619-846-3094, email@example.com) to sign
up - he is keeping a list of the entries outside of TDM. Entry Fees will be $40
per team. The matches will be played with green dot balls. Match formats will
be round robin scoring using short sets. The emphasis will be on fun. We expect to play
these matches late in the day on Saturday with an approximate 3:30pm start time
when the main events are winding down.
