FOUR STAR EVENT!

ABOUT THE TEAMS SOUTH 2015

For 17 years North American Table Tennis has hosted the North American Teams, the world's largest annual team-based table tennis tournament. Now we're bringing the same great format to your area with the JOOLA Teams South 2015.

Team tournaments are different. They're more dramatic with more hinging on your match than just your own success. If you've never made the trip to the DC area for North American Teams, this is your chance to see what all the excitement is about.

The appeal of Teams is simple: plenty of high quality play. You'll get to play *lots* of matches against players of similar level. Teams are three, four, or five players with three taking part in any given team match. Sign on with a group of five and you'll have some time off to rest or watch the top division. Be a part of a team of three and you'd better be ready for a strenuous two days.

Team matches are Swaythling cup format: five matches out of nine. Each of the nine potential individual matches is a singles match played best three of five.

Since this is a two day tournament, we're diving straight into the divisional play. Teams will be seeded based on the combined rating of the three top players on the team and placed into division 1, 2, or 3. Each division will consist of two groups (1A and 1B, 2A and 2B, and 3A and 3B) of eight teams playing a round robin to determine who advances to the semifinals on Sunday afternoon. Two teams will advance from each group (so the top two teams from 1A will advance to the semifinals of division 1 against the top two teams from division 1B, etc.)

Division 1 champions will get to divide $3000. Division 1 runners-up share $1500. Each team losing in division 1 semifinals gets $750. In addition, *every* divisional champion receives a free entry to the North American Teams in DC in November (one per team).

Entry fee: $499, but to kick off our inaugural event and make sure it's a big success, this is being discounted to $299!
