Posted By: dominick
 

Hey guys,

This is the biggest Smashapalooza yet. We had to cap several events, but we've done our best to accomodate everyone. We have 64-player draws for DMS, DMD, and CMD.

We really enjoy hosting Smashapalooza every year, and we need your help to continue. Because the tournament is so big, UC Berkeley has warned us that we absolutely have to finish by 10:00PM on both Saturday and Sunday in order to continue hosting Smashapalooza.

Here's how you can help us finish on time and continue to host Smashapalooza:

  • Be on time: we will default players 5 minutes after their match has been called
  • Warm up quickly: we will ask you to start your match after 3 minutes of warmup
  • Eat quickly: keep lunch breaks under 30 minutes and sign out at the tournament desk beforehand

Thanks for your cooperation and understanding!

Please contact us at calbadminton@gmail.com about any issues with the draws.
