Team Blue (22.964) vs Team Red (22. 967)
Women's Doubles, Men's Doubles, then two Mixed Doubles
Games to 21 - win by 2, Modified Rally Scoring until one team reaches game point (20)
Each game is worth 1 point
If the points are tied 2-2 after all four games, a singles Dreambreaker will ensue
One team first discloses its 4-person singles rotation order, and then the opposing team with that knowledge counter-designates its singles rotation order. Each player then rotates in for 4 singles points, until the tiebreaker has a winner. Modified Rally scoring, in a game to 15, win by 2.
$1000 appearance fee per player
+$250 per player for each game won
+$500 per player for winning team
