In the larger age groups, three skill divisions are being created based on ratings that players recorded.  Please note that the skill breakdowns will be different for each age group, dependent on numbers within each skill division.

In addition, an e-mail will be sent to players detailing parking, concessions, and other information.

Events: Singles, Doubles, Mixed Doubles

Venue Location: Chattanooga Convention Center

1 Carter Plaza, Chattanooga, TN 37402

2021 Competition Dates:  August 6-8 (See general schedule below.  After registration closes, numbers will be analyzed and brackets generated which will take some time due to the number of age groups and skill levels.  Start times per age group will be posted a week out at the latest.)

Singles : Friday, August 6  
Doubles: Saturday, August 7  
Mixed Doubles: Sunday, August 8  

Skill Levels:  Our plans are to divide into age group (50-54, 55-59 etc)  and skill level play.

We are hopeful to split into 3 skill level divisions within each age group.

This is dependent on numbers of entries in each age group.  Players will be divided into skill divisions after registration closes. 

Age/Skill doubles and mixed doubles will be determined by the higher skill player and the lower aged player as of 12/31/2021.
