One day, modified double elimination. For example, with 32 players, we play down to four on each side, then the four players from the one-loss side redraw into an 8-player single elimination board. If you make the board, you are in the money.
The race is 7 on the winners side and 5 on the one-loss side.
We have a mandatory players meeting at 11:00. Play starts immediately after. The draw is done by computer. If you come with another player, we will make every effort to ensure that you do not play each other in the first round.

Players are expected to dress appropriately. While we realize that it is very hot in the summer months and pool rooms often have A/C problems in the summer, we still have to be mindful of the dress code.
Generally, please do not wear tops or other clothing that are revealing when you bend over to shoot at the table. Shorts must be close to knee-length. All tops must have sleeves and not show cleavage or midriff when bending over the table. Tops /T-shirts with text or logos must be in good taste. If you have a sponsor we encourage you to wear your sponsor’s logo.
CLOTHING NOT WITHIN DRESS CODE
- Sleeveless tops, tank tops, and tops with spaghetti straps are not permitted unless covered by a second top. For example, a sheer top with short sleeves over a top with spaghetti straps is permissible.
- Crop tops
- Jeans with holes, stains, etc.
- Rubber beach-type flip-flops.
- Head phones/ cell phones/ smoking /vaping not permitted during a match.
Just use common sense, and if in doubt, bring a second set of clothes.
TFT Members earn points for each event based on where you finish. Points accumulate during the year. Players with the most points at the end of the year are eligible for awards and receive the first invitations for the NAPT Division II Championship.
We attempt to stream every event.
