HITL Tournament

See tournament brackets here: HITL 2011 Tournament Brackets

Rules are same as in the past:
  • Both players/teams bring a new can of balls. The winner gets the new can, and the loser gets the opened can.
  • Matches for each round must be played by the end date posted in the brackets, or any unplayed matches may be scored as a double default.
  • You can play matches early if your opponent(s) is available to do so.
  • Results should be sent immediately following the match to: vicepresident@hitl.org. The results will be posted to the HITL webpage every couple of days.
  • Please see the notes below about players needed for extra brackets. If you have any extra players available, please send their names to: vicepresident@hitl.org

HITL End of Season Party

The HITL end-of-season party has been scheduled for 10/15/2011 at HTC from 11:00-2:00. Free pizza and drinks will be provided to all HITL players and their family. The division winners and the tournament winners can pick up their prizes at the party. This year, the prizes are wicking type caps.

The end-of-season tournament has also been scheduled. The tournament will start 9/7 and will run thru 10/14 (div 2 singles will run a little longer). The length of each round will be 2 weeks and will shorten towards the end of the tournament.

Ashok is working on the tournament seeding. Once he has that done, we will post that on the HITL website and players can begin playing anytime after the brackets are posted. Further details will be sent out when the brackets are available.

As before, the winners of each doubles bracket, and the finalists in each singles bracket, will get a prize.

Round 1 Extended

We realize that it may be hard for everyone to complete their matches this first round, and that HITL isn't necessarily the first priority for many of us right now, so we have decided to extend the completion date for the first round to the end of the 3rd round (6/7/2011). We will keep the rest of the schedule "as is" (i.e the 2nd round will still start on 5/11/2011). This change just gives everyone some extra time to complete their first round matches. Please let your players know of this change.
