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.
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.
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: mydupr.com registration page.
