Tournament Description: The Monarch of the Beach format allows for there to be an individual tournament winner and play happens in a format where every point matters, and you do not need to bring a partner! The tournament has 3 pools of 5 players [1 pool per court] for a max of 15 players. Example flow: The players on court 1 will play a set to 21 points while partnered up with each of the other members of their pool. The off player [5th player] will be the referee/scorekeeper for that set. After each set, every member of the pool will take a water break and then begin another set with a different partner and a new off player. The scores from each set will be recorded - therefore every player will have their own win/loss record AND their own point differential.
Tournament will be held weather-permitting. Rain will not necessarily cancel the clinic. Dress appropriately*
*Modest dress please-stomach area covered, spandex or shorts.
