PRIZE MONEY BREAKDOWN & SCHEDULE

Payout entry minimum - is the minimum number of singles individuals, or doubles teams, needed to be entered in a specific division to pay the full amount of the prize money allocated for that division. If the number of entries is below the required entry minimum, then the prize money for that division will be paid as percentages of the total amount of money collected in that division.

  • Champions - 35% of the division's receipts
  • Finalists - 17.5% of the division's receipts
  • Semifinalists - 10% of the division's receipts
  • Backdraw champ (singles only) 7.5% of the division's receipts

Men's Open singles and doubles always pays the full amount due to their large number of entries. Last year we had 72 Men's Open singles entries and 29 Men's Open doubles teams. Some of the other divisions just make the minimum, others singles divisions may have only 4 entries, so the winner would receive $56 (35% of $160) and so on down the line.

EVENT SCHEDULING

Junior Events

  • Run between 9 AM and 3 PM starting Monday, Dec. 26

Adult Events

  • Men's Open singles
    Monday Dec. 26 @ 3PM - definite
  • Men's 35 singles
    Tuesday Dec. 27 @ 6 PM - estimated
  • Men's 45, 55 singles
    Wednesday Dec. 28 @ 3 PM - estimated
  • Women's singles
    All divisions Wednesday Dec. 28 @ 3 PM - estimated
  • All Doubles Events
    Wednesday Dec. 28 @ 6 PM - estimated

These estimates of event scheduling are based on the past five years worth of experience related directly to the size of the draws in each division. Some long matches may cause others to run to midnight, or beyond . We have averaged between 70 and 80 entries in the men's open singles in the last five years. Men's Open singles, by itself, takes two days to whittle this number down, in a 128 draw format with first match consolation backdraw, to a size where other events can take place. The first and second day are usually 48 matches of men's open singles competition. Men's open singles will definitely begin on Dec. 26 due to the fact we are expecting a large number of entries again. The other events usually commence on the third or fourth day depending on the draw size. If an event only has four entries, only two days are required to complete it. All finals and back draw finals will be scheduled on Saturday, December 30 between noon and 8 PM.

Note - Some of the larger doubles events, men's open doubles in particular, may have the semi finals and finals scheduled on Dec. 30.
