I am looking to form a few more teams, have a few players, 1600+ and 1900 to get on teams... was so close to getting a couple more teams together, but life happened. I need a few more players to indicate they want this tourney. 

I am buying Blue Tibhar uniforms for the teams of my friends/enemy opponent friends and lettering them the week with player names and team name before the tourney. I have enough on hand for a team, will get more if we can form another.

I want to see ALL KINDS of TT friends and FRIENDIMIES playing in this tourney, it is gunna be an absolute blast.

If you are way out of town, and get on one of my teams, and are worried about getting to venue or where to stay without spending biug bucks, I have a car and an airBnB whole apartment 3 of us are using, I am sleeping on floor, so there will be couch space if you want to play and save some money.

Ladies and gentlemen -

I have been helping 888 TTC organize a few things with this tournament (was just there installing the gorgeous Enlio ITTF flooring and putting together tables)...Although I am not on the tournament committee, I have been doing some back-end administrative work to support them.

Wanted to let everyone know:
- The entry deadline has been extended until June 18
- The tournament will now start with the play-in round on Friday night at 6pm (instead of 9am), meaning if you have to work or have other commitments during the day on Friday, you can (hopefully) now work around that. We heard from a fairly large number of people the full day Friday was an issue, so Ed and Yelena re-worked the schedule.
- If you are around during the day on Friday, the facility will be open for practice and open play at Noon. There is no charge for players entered into the tournament.
- To accommodate the change, the maximum number of teams was reduced from 80 to 50. 
- As a result, the division format has changed from 5 divisions of 16 teams (2 groups of 8 in each division with a crossover finals) to 5 divisions of 10 teams, meaning you will now play 9 rounds instead of 7.

The facility is stunning. Every table will have ITTF flooring with wooden sub-floors. The lighting is incredible - 1000 lux, evenly distributed throughout the facility - literally no dead spots. Brand new tables. Stunning.

For those of you who have registered and have not yet received an email about the changes above, I apologize - the flooring and table install had to take priority. You should receive an email in the next day or so.

Happy to answer any other questions.

Gordy too diplomatic about the emailing... the admin section very upfront about proposed change that is now final, every captain was informed ahead of time... if they opened their email.

This tourney is gunna shape up to be a real fun one with all kinds of matches and battles. Most of the TTers want many matches and strong competition... some others want to to see world class pros go at it... there is that too.

I was at the tournament site today, they had five tables up with coach Maggie and some juniors. Great space and lighting.

I had already procured some Blue Tibhar uniforms for my team (and offered them to my friends teams) but Nexy just came out with the TIGER jersey and I made a huge order. SHould have them in time to letter them for my team and have a few with me at the tourney.

Think of the old Korean Natl team jersey, this graphic is similar - great jersey. A shame to letter the frony and obscure that nice looking Tiger, so everything goes on the back.

or something like that on back.

What is a modified Swaythiling Cup format with only 7 singles ?

ITTF Handbook only describes 6 singles & 1 doubles format

Suppose we will get to hear that come Captains' meeting this Friday evening... but I would guess the "Modification" is NOT having a doubles match and just 7 singles matches with A-B-C X-Y-Z players where one player is slated to play 3 matches of the team vs team matchup goes to the full 7 matches. You win the team vs team matchup if your team wins 4 matches.
