Pure Pong is starting another league for novice through advanced levels (up to 1800). Players will be placed on a table each league night that is appropriate to their level (generally, beginners play beginners, intermediates play intermediates, advanced play advanced). Each player plays 3-5 singles matches per night in a round robin format. If you are Dragon of the Table for the night (player with the best results), you advance up to the next table the following week. If you finish at the bottom of the table, you go down a table level the next week. Players will play a lot of matches with many different players in this format. Wild Cards or Walk-ins (players not officially signed up in the league) may also play in the league on any given night. They will pay an additional fee that registered players don’t pay. These Wild Cards or walk-ins help give a great mix to the Dragon of the Table format. This is an opportunity to play a lot of different players, many different styles, and a good range of ratings!!
Who: Open to all novice-intermediate level players (*under 1800 USATT level)
What: Dragon of the Table Singles League. Each person will be given a table to play their three to five singles matches. The person winning his/her round robin, on a given night, will advance to the next higher table the following week. The person with the weakest results in the round robin will go down one table the next week. Every match is best of 5 games.
When: Every Tuesday night 7:00-8:30 PM starting , March 18, then, March 25, April 1, April 8, April 15, and April 22. Wild Cards or Walk-ins need to show up by 6:45 PM to be placed in the round robin that night. Accepting sign-ups March 11.
