Event Day Player InstructionsThe instructions below are the same as Huntington Beach Weekend February 2023. If you played that tournament, we already have your number and no further action is required.
- When you arrive at the venue, please check in with the tournament front desk. You will be 1) asked to read these instructions, 2) asked to input your phone number to the tournament and 3) will receive a tournament ball. You can keep the ball and do not need to return it. To save time, you can read these instructions ahead of time and input your phone number here. Note that you do not need to give us your number if you have already received a text message within the past week that looks like this:
- The venue will open at 8:15 am.
- Every player must have access to text messages. If you are dropping your kid off, please input the phone number of a coach or trusted adult who will be present at the tournament.
- We will not be handing out clipboards and balls like at other tournaments. Instead, whenever you have a match, you will receive a text message indicating your table number and opponent like the one below (note the text will come from an unknown number):
- Once you receive a text, go to the table and start your match. You do not need to contact the tournament director unless something is wrong (e.g. your opponent won't show up). Just start your match using the ball we gave you earlier.
- When you are finished with your match, click on the link on the text message. It will take you to a webpage to submit your results like the one shown below:
- Input your results and hit submit button at the bottom of the page. If all goes well, your results have been saved and you will be redirected to the draw. Again, you do not need to inform the tournament director once your match has finished.
- You can save results in between games by clicking the "save" button at the bottom of the page. Remember to hit "submit" once the match finishes.
- For security reasons, you may only submit your results once by clicking the submit button on the webpage. If you made an error and need to submit again, then contact any tournament staff and we will unlock the page for you again.
- Only one player needs to submit results. Please submit as soon as your match ends so we can free up the table for the next match.
- Remember to take your ball after your match finishes. If you lose or break your ball, we will not provide replacement balls. Additional balls will be available for purchase both from the tournament and from OCTTA.
- It is important to remember that your table changes every match. Always check your text messages to see where your next match is.
- Once a table is available, we immediately assign it to the next match in line. You can view your position in line here. You can also reach this page by clicking on "Match Queue" on the menu at the top of the page. The match queue will show an ETA (may not be too accurate as this is our first time doing it) and whether your opponent is currently playing on another table. The match queue should look something like this:
- The match queue will also show a list of who is currently playing at what table and for how long each match has been going on. You can use it to watch your next opponent and get a rough idea of when your next match will start. The list should look something like this:
- If you have been eliminated but have played fewer than three matches (due to an opponent defaulting or you finished third in a group of three), please see the front desk. We will do our best to schedule you an additional match for fun (that still counts for rating).
- Your match will only show up on the queue once the event has started.
- To help the tournament run more quickly, if you see that someone you know should be playing, please inform them.
- If any problems come up, please talk to any of the tournament staff. Have fun!
