Our inaugural girl's event in 2005 saw 72 teams competing on 20 courts. The tournament hosted single age groups
for 18/17/16/15/14 and under teams on a first come first served basis all in the convention center. The 2006 event saw 124 teams competing on 22 courts in the convention center. We once again hosted single age groups that included Open and Club Divisions for the 16's and 18's. The tournament filled well ahead of the entry deadline. Last year over 260 teams competed over the holiday weekend with over 320 teams trying to enter. This year we expect to accept 280 teams in to the event..

We will utilize Advance Event Systems for the online registration. Teams are accepted on a "first paid, first accepted basis." Teams living outside a 50 mile radius must stay in our hotel block. The deadline for entries is December 15, 2010 but could close earlier if divisions fill. To complete the entry process we must receive proper payment, a signed tournament entry form, and confirmation from PSA that hotel reservations have been made. Paying by credit card and faxing the tournament entry form to (804) 358-1018 is the fastest way to start the entry process. The entry fee is $550 for the 13's through 18's divisions and $450 for the 12's division. Each team
will be guaranteed seven matches (or game equivalent).
