U5555RR TEAM TOURNAMENT: SATURDAY, MARCH 10, 2019 (UNSANCTIONED)!!!
1st place: $600/Team; 2nd place: $300/Team; 3rd/4th (semis): $150/Team
Each Team will consist of three or maximum of four players, where the combined rating for the three players must total 5555 or less. Player must have USATT rating 2100 & under to enter the tournament. Player with no rating will be given a rating of 1850 by default. Each team is allowed to have at the most, one player with no rating. Teams will be seeded into preliminary round robins of 3 to 5 Teams. The top two Teams from each round robin will advance into a single elimination playoffs.
Order of Play: Each Team match only allowed 3 players to play and no one can play more than two matches. When the team match is called, each team will report to the Control Desk where one team will be designated the A/B/C team and the other X/Y/Z. The first three matches are singles matches, in which each player from each team must play once, in any order chosen by each team. The first team to win three individual matches wins the team match! The fourth match, if necessary, will be a doubles match. The fifth match, if necessary, will be a one game singles match. Whoever scores 5 points first, will win the match, with no deuce allowed. Each team can choose any player for the fourth match. The player for the fifth match, if necessary, cannot be the player for the fourth match. Anyone can win in the fifth match, since only play up to 5 points! Super exciting & intense!
Every Saturday, LATTA hosts 2 Round Robins: U2000RR at 10:00 AM and Equal Challenge (EC) at 3pm. EC is a system where the higher player spots the lower player handicapped points. Thus, making it more equal between the 2 players!

Equal Challenge Feb. 2 Results:
