2021 Memorial Weekend Tournament: May 29-31, 2021

Baden Presents the 2021 Memorial Weekend Tournament.

 

The 2121 Memorial Weekend Tournament is an open entry for any team that wants to play over the three-day Memorial Day Weekend.  It is not an “invitational” style tournament, so teams will be accepted first paid, first served, until the tournament fills. For the first time, this will be a 3-day AM/PM Wave tournament. We will use the same format used during our Presidents Weekend Tournament.

The tournament will be held at the NW Sports Hub -- a 14 court facility in Centralia. There are an additional 10 courts within 5 miles of the Hub, so teams will not have to worry about a lot of driving from the central core of tournament hotels. The Baden All-Tournament Team for each age group will be presented after each Gold Final.

There will be two rounds of pool play (Saturday and Sunday), followed by single elimination play (Monday); all teams advance to Monday playoffs.  Play will go until later in the day Monday with AM wave teams starting at 8 AM, and PM wave teams starting after AM Wave has completed  There will be prizes for First Place teams in every division and individual prizes for champions in the Gold Division. Teams that finish in the top four are guaranteed to have players on the Baden All-Tournament team.

Team Limits: (tentatively for 14 courts at the NW Sports Hub and additional courts locally):

We reserve the right to adjust the waves in order to balance out the age groups so we use the same number of courts each wave. We will make our first amendment on March 1.
