WCC '17 Update

Windy City Cup 2017 Update

Ben Alston at the 2015 Windy City Cup.

If you're coming to the Windy City Cup this year, there are a few changes you should probably know about!  As was announced in previous posts, this year's event will take place entirely at Humboldt Park.  Here are a few of the other big changes:

  • There is no official gathering on Friday, June 23rd.  If players would like to get together to play, nothing is stopping that from happening, but event organizers will not be at the park in any official capacity on that day.
  • There will be no entry fee this year.  There will also be no Players Pack, no prize money, no Navy Pier, and no whining.
  • We will begin competition on Saturday morning at 11:00 AM with Doubles Net.  We will run the event all the way through the finals.  If there is time, we will run Singles Net afterward.  If there is no time for Singles on Saturday, we will not officially run a Singles Net bracket.
  • Sunday will be dedicated to pick-up games.  We will only run official events on Sunday if absolutely necessary.
These changes are being implemented to make the event more friendly to beginners and event organizers, who have been very busy this last year (to put it mildly).  We hope you understand and we look forward to hosting you!
