City of Oaks Challenge NEWS

**Update 4/15/21: Tentative wave schedule released. Teams will play in one 3-hour wave on day 1. There will be a 30 minute stagger between start times to allow for safe entry into the venue.

  • Wave 1: 8am/8:30am start time
  • Wave 2: 12pm/12:30pm start time
  • Wave 3: 5pm/5:30pm start time

**UPDATE 4/12/21: Teams will be required to supply two (2) volunteers from their pool of spectators. One volunteer will serve as a line judge, and one will work at the scorers table. This format will allow each team to play 3 back-to-back matches with no work or off team.

**UPDATE 12/17/20: Unfortunately, as COVID-19 numbers continue to rise in North Carolina (and the entire country) and time runs out for there to be a significant turnaround or for any potential and immediate solutions to help ease the burden of the pandemic, we are left with no choice but to officially postpone the 2021 City of Oaks Challenge. Fortunately, through our partnership with the Raleigh Convention Center and the Greater Raleigh Sports Alliance [GRSA], we are already looking to move the event to later in 2021 so that the chances we can host this event in Raleigh are greatly improved. Our planned dates [pending contract approval] are May 1st & May 2nd, 2021, with more detailed information to come.
