The Wildcat Cup

November 5th & 7th, 2021

The Wildcat Cup is a club tournament for club members only. It is a round robin team based mini-tournament. Events played include men’s singles, women’s singles, men’s doubles, women’s doubles, and mixed doubles. A coin toss will decide which team will determine the first event played. After the first event is decided and played, the opposing team decides the next event. The cycle repeats until one team wins 3 events.

What is a team based tournament like?

Captains will be selected after sign-ups are finished to determine the number of teams possible. Selected captains then draft team members to be on their respective team. Teams compete against each other to win 3 events first. The winning overall winning team (most wins) will receive custom shirts.

The link above contains all the pictures taken by Jason, and while he wishes to take a lot more, but he was also playing and hopes you understand why he could not have the opportunity to take one of everyone while playing. Otherwise, enjoy the pictures for you to view and download!
