With the Australian Grand Prix successfully completed, players are now invited to join in the second edition of the Sydney Cup. This is a Sydney wide knockout tournament which was first held in 2018. It will span the entire year with the grand final to be scheduled for late Nov/early Dec.
The tournament uses a double-elimination system, meaning that players are not knocked out until they lose for a second time. Players will be drawn randomly (there are no seedings at any stage of the tournament, meaning the big guns can sometimes knock each other out early, while some dark horses can make their way deep into the tournament) and given a month to play their game. Games are organised by each pairing, scheduled to suit their own availability. Games can be played at any of the club nights run by the various clubs in Sydney, or at any other time and venue that suits each pairing.
All players are invited to join, regardless of age, gender, ability or experience. The commitment required will be to play one game per month until you are knocked out. Players must be available to play their fixtures in Sydney throughout the tournament. Entry is free.
Please fill out the form below to register for the tournament. Entries close at midnight on Sunday, Feb 10, 2019.
