Format Each player is matched up first by age and then by ability - ensuring that all players play against similar standard opponents. Our custom-built tournament management software tracks your games and re-ranks all players each game to ensure every player plays a different opponent each game and someone of an appropriate standard!
All players play 7 games. No knockouts. This is is known as a Swiss-style tournament.

How to Enter Online on Tornelo Click on the tournament name you are entering and follow the prompts or on our Kids Unlimited Zone.
It is preferred if you can enter online prior to the event - this helps us prepare furniture, staff and prizes for the day. It is possible to enter on the day, again an online entry saves some time and as a last resort you can show up on site and enter in person on the day.
