Timetable


  • 9:30am: Come early morning for an energizing Vinyasa Flow Yoga session. Lululemon will provide the yogi and the mats. Look for us next to the court.
  • 11:00am: We kick off the King & Queen of the Court Tournament. You don’t have to come with a partner as we encourage trying to play with different people each game. This will help to meet other people, learn from them or support them to learn new techniques, but above all, enjoy the spirit of sportsmanship.
  • 7:30pm: The two players with the most points will play the final game.
  • 8:00pm: Prize ceremony and closure of the event

 

Tournament Format


 

  1. To start the tournament all players will draw a number out of a box. The two players who draw no.1 take the winning side of the court to start the tournament.
  2. You can only score points on the winning side of the court. Any points scored count towards your individual total.
  3. On the other side of the court (not the winning side), all other players form a queue to play 5pt against the players who are holding the winning side.
  4. The challengers need to win the game to progress to the winning side and only then score points.
  5. Points earned on the winning side will be recorded against the individual name.
  6. At 19:25, the two individuals with the highest scores will be announced.
  7. These two individuals will pick a partner and play a 15pt or 21pt (time permitting) game against each other.
  8. The winner of this game is the winner of the tournament. Either a king (male) or a queen (female).
  9. The second position either prince or princess will be the second player with more point (not the chosen partner of the winner of the final game).
