Sign up today! Newgy is proud to be one of sponsors for the Knoxville Joseph Newgarden Memorial Summer Gold Dollar Upset Open Table Tennis Tournament set for August 4, 2018 at the Cecil Webb Recreation Center at 923 Baker Ave., Knoxville, Tennessee 37920.
The tournament format will be giant round robin and will have two stages. The first stage will be a giant round robin in which 36 table tennis players will be split into two divisions. The top 18 rated players will be in the Upper division and the lower 18 rated players will be in the Lower division. For each division, there will be two groups of 9 players. So each player will play 8 table tennis matches within the group.
The top two finishes of each group will advance to the division’s semi-finals and final. The looser of the Semi-Finals will play for a 3rd place match. Please note that unrated players will not be allowed to advance to the single elimination stage if the estimated rating is grossly incorrect, i.e. if the highest rated player beaten by the unrated player has a larger rating difference of 200 points. The next qualified player will take the spot instead.
The Gold Dollar Upset format - the winner of every upset match played between two USATT rated table tennis players will receive Upset Gold Dollar. The rules for winning the upset Gold Dollar are:
- Gold Dollars will be paid to winners of all upsets, regardless of player’s rating.
- Winners of each and every upset will receive gold dollars using the following payout schedule:
- Rating difference: 100 or less, Gold Dollar reward: $5.00
- Rating difference: 101 to 150, Gold Dollar reward: $10.00
- Rating difference: 151 or larger, Gold Dollar reward: $15.00
- The gold dollars will be paid immediately upon confirmation of match sheets showing upsets on a first come first get paid basis until the funds run out. KTTC reserves $200 Gold Dollars for this payout. So sharpen your table tennis game and hit the court ready to win!
- Rating used to determine the upsets will be the USATT ratings of record as of 09:00 a.m. Friday August 03, 2018. Only USATT rated players prior to the date of the tournament are eligible to win gold dollars.
Entry deadline is August 1, 2018. Early entry discount deadline is July 23, 2018.
