COVID-19 Spectator Policy [NEW for 2021]

The 2021 City of Oaks Challenge will allow spectators at the event. Due to regulations by the city, there are limitations on how many will be able to attend. The following rules are current as of today (3/29), and may change as city and state guidelines are changed.

  • We will be allowing two (2) spectators per rostered athlete present at the event. Maximum roster size is 12. 
  • Spectator entry is contingent on ALL spectators wearing a CDC compliant mask, covering both the nose and mouth at all times. No exceptions. 
NEW for 2021 Event: Teams will be required to supply two (2) volunteers from their pool of spectators to assist with officiating responsibilities. One volunteer will serve as a line judge, and one will work at the scorer's table. This format will allow each team to play 3 back-to-back matches with no work or off team.

Tournament Results and Schedule will be found on Advanced Event Systems (AES).
