Tryouts Results Summary

Thank you to all who participated in our beginning of the year tryouts tournament. Here is a quick summary of the tournament:

• 40 total players participated
• 118 total matches were played
• The tournament took approximately 10 hours of play spread over 5 days
• Resultant ratings of the participants
       • Mean: 1357      Median:1368      Std. Dev: 274

Congratulations to Hanqing (William) Zhu for winning GTTTA's 2014 Tryouts Tournament!

Finishers 2-8:
Arjun Tikku, Abner Ayala, Siddarth P., Karan Mehta, York Huang, Wai Hong Lam, Fuad Hasbun

Check out the detailed results on our league page. The ratings earned during tryouts will be used to begin our weekly Thursday Night League. Players are placed in groups with other players of a similar rating. Each player that participates in a league session will have their rating adjusted based on their results from that session. The club ratings will be the primary means of selected players for the Varsity and Junior Varsity teams.

Tryouts Prelims Results

Thank you to all who participated in the preliminary round of our tryouts tournament. We decided that the top 2 finishers from each group will advance to the final round (held on Thursday, September 4th). The final round will consist of a seeded round robin (4 groups of 4 players each), with the top 2 from each group moving onto a double elimination knockout stage.

Here is the list of the players who have advanced.

Vedant Ajmera Arjun Tikku Hanqing Zhu Wai Hong Lam
Derek Lee Karan Mehta Sofia Romero York Huang
Siddarth Palaniappan Kyle Post Abner Ayala Timothy Kerr
Fuad Hasbun William Zhou Jing Feng Wang Gong Bin

Tryouts will begin this week! ALL PLAYERS are encouraged to sign up and participate

****Please sign up for your which day you will be participating in the first round using the following link:****

The format of the tryouts will be as follows:

The tournament will be in 2 rounds. The preliminary round will be split across 3 roughly equal sessions
(Thursday Aug 28, Friday Aug 29, and Monday Sept 1).
Each player will participate in ONE of the 3 first round sessions. The first round will consist of round robin groups of 5 players each.

Approximately 50% of all participants will advance to the final round (which will be held on Thursday, September 4th).
The final round will likely consist of round robin groups of 4-5 players per group with the top 2 from each group advancing to a double elimination bracket.

Keep in mind that although one purpose of tryouts is to identify candidates for the varsity teams, it will also serve to give each member an initial rating. This rating will then be used for our Thursday Night League to help guarantee close matches with good competition for every player.

GTTTA's Thursday Night League

Thanks to all of you who came out to our first league night! We had 12 total players participate (which is awesome!) in the league which was split into 2 groups of 6.
I have posted the results from this week’s session on our new “League” tab on our website. Check it out here: http://tta.gtorg.gatech.edu/?q=league

Also, this Monday will be our first official training session of our new 8 week training progression.
This week we will be focusing on grip, ready stance, and forehand / backhand counterhit techniques.
The training sessions will start off basic, but build on each other very quickly.
