Subject: [volleyball-69] Grass Doubles Tournament Tomorrow Afternoon

 
  Hello Fellow Spikers,
 
  Well, the time is drawing very close to our very first (and hopefully, one of many) grass doubles
  tourney for the Pasadena Volleyball Club.  The tension and excitement are mounting as we
  draw closer to tomorrow's tourney play.
 
  As of now, these are the declared teams and how they have been placed into the 2 pools:
 
  A POOL
  Joy/Heather
  Priscilla and her partner
  Rocky/Ieva
  Jose/Erin
  Benjie and his "Anglo" partner
  Ben/Patrick
 
  B POOL  (this division is now closed)
  Clyde/Christine
  Steve/Liss
  Kip/Johnny
  Gil/Frank
  Tony/Robserto
 
  The number of games that each team plays and what teams play each other have been determined
  within each pool.  Pool Play will be to 21 with a cap of 25 for tied games.  Each "resting" team
  will be asked to ref and keep score of an "active" playing team.   Score sheets will be provided
  to a "resting" team.
 
  At the end of the pool play, the number of wins and losses will be tallied for each team to
  determine their final rankings within each pool.   The number of points will be used in the case
  where identical win-loss records occur between teams.   The final rankings will then determine
  what teams play another in the playoff round which will be single elimination with play to 21
  and a cap of 25. 
 
  Gift certificates of $15 will be awarded to each first place team and $10 for each second place team.
  The first place team will have first choice of the mix of gift certificates.   Each first place team will
  also receive a medallion which will be made available sometime after the tournament as we were
  not able to place the order in time prior to the tournament.
 
  The schedule of the pool play as well as the rules to be observed for grass doubles will be sent-out
  later today.   Please be aware, that grass doubles rules are somewhat more restrictive than
  play with teams of larger groups so that your style of play will have to adjust.
 
  The entry fee for the tourney is $10/player and is due at sign-in/registration time tomorrow
  afternoon before play begins.  I have already received the entry fees from several players
  already.  And, everyone will have to sign a waiver form prior to playing.
 
  Lastly, the goal of the tourney is to provide a challenging, competitive venue for those players in the
  Meetup who enjoy playing doubles.   But most importantly,  I would like to stress that the tourney
  be conducted in a fun and enjoyable manner with good sportsmanship and respect among
  the players always observed.
 
  So, folks, let the doubles tourney begin tomorrow afternoon and enjoy!
  Mark 
 
  P.S.  I'm also thinking if we have enough nets, that we can set a net up for just general play
  for folks  not playing in the tourney.
