Brackets are formed with 16 teams maximum and after each round, you continue playing against a team with the same sequence of wins-losses. For example, after round three, teams who won their first 2 and lost the 3rd play and teams that lost the first and won the next 2 play. Your sequence matters even though all teams have 2 wins and 1 loss.

Open Gender / Age Events:

Participants can play with a partner of any age, gender, or level. The common denominator? Play will be competitive, level-based, and DUPR-neutral across demographics.

DUPR Rating:

All players must have a DUPR of 5.0 or less because the DUPR Waterfall guarantees DUPR-neutral play. Players with a DUPR rating higher than the maximum number in that bracket cannot play down. Players are permitted to play in a higher DUPR rated bracket if their DUPR rating is lower than the bracket's minimum rating. The tournament director will have final approval on tournament admission.

Players that don't have a DUPR rating can enter the tournament. Player can self-rate, but If a player doesn't have a DUPR rating, that player can't win a Platinum Ticket. It is highly encouraged to record 3-5 self-recorded games through the DUPR app prior to registration. If a DUPR rated player has a partner with a NR, that team will play in the DUPR rated bracket of that player.


Play will occur within a four-hour designated time window. Players sign up with or without a partner and DUPR will create brackets of 16 teams based on rating of the highest DUPR rated player on the team.

Partner Differential:

Within the DUPR Algorithm, matches, where players are rated with a difference greater than 1.50, are excluded. Therefore, players may not sign up with a partner outside of that range. So, a 5.0 can’t play with a 3.4, but a 4.9 and a 3.5 could play two players rated a 4.4.


Payment must be taken through: registration page.
