Knoxville Table Tennis Club will be hosting our second tournament in 2016 on September 10th, 2016.  This time, we are very grateful to have the support from the Knoxville Cedar Bluff Racquet Club (CBRC) Tennis Center.  So the tournament will be hosted at the Indoor Tennis Center of the CBRC.  This venue has four large full size Tennis courts.  Similar to last year Secret City Open, we will have 12 tables and 60 players roster.  Also, we will have our players’ favorite Gold Dollar for any upset match.  This makes our prize money to be $1410 + $260 for Gold Dollars.

This tournament is unique because money can be won by all level of players; not just the top players. The only criteria to win gold dollars is to upset a player whose USATT rating is higher than yours. The rules for winning the upset Gold Dollar are:

  1. Gold Dollars will be paid to winners of all upsets, regardless of player’s rating.
  2. Winners of each and every upset will receive gold dollars using the following payout schedule:
    1. Rating difference: 100 or less, Gold Dollar reward: $5.00
    2. Rating difference: 101 to 150, Gold Dollar reward: $10.00
    3. Rating difference: 150 or larger, Gold Dollar reward: $15.00
  3. 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 $240 Gold Dollars for this payout.  So sharpen your game and hit the court running fast!
  4. In addition, Grand Upset Winner (the player accumulated the most Gold Dollars by the end of the tournament play) will receive an added bonus prize of $20 Gold Dollars.
  5. Rating used to determine the upsets will be the USATT ratings of record as of 09:00 a.m. Friday September 09th, 2016.  Only USATT rated players prior to the date of the tournament are eligible to win gold dollars.

In addition, KTTC and the Holiday Inn West Knoxville at Cedar Bluff have arranged a block of rooms for any out of town players to enjoy a nice night of rest before the tournament.  The discounted rate of $85 a night is a great rate for a newly renovated Holiday Inn.  To make your reservation, simply click here to go to the Knoxville Table Tennis Club Holiday Inn page and you can use the online code KTT or simply call the hotel at 888-465-4329 and mention the KTT group code.  Also, you will receive $10 hotel discount off the tournament entry fee if you stay at our sponsor hotel.  Just be sure to put down the hotel reservation number on your entry form.
