2020 Winter Classic

Here are the details

Tournament Info

The Winter Classic Tournament has 2 stages:

  • Stage 1: Round Robin
    All entrants take part in this stage.  The players in each division are put into groups of 4 (based on zip code and/or court surface preference when possible) and each player in the group plays the other players in the group (3 matches).  Players receive an email at the start of the this stage with the contact information for the other players in the group.  This stage lasts anywhere from 5-1/2 weeks to 7-1/2 weeks depending on draw size.  There are no deadlines per se in this stage but all matches must be completed by the deadline for each division.
  • Stage 2: Single-Elimination
    The 2 players with the best records in each Stage 1 division group move on to this stage.  Players receive an email at the start of this stage with their opponents contact information.  Players receive additional emails as they progress through this stage.  This stage lasts 3-1/2 weeks to 5-1/2 weeks depending on draw size and during this stage there is a "Play By" date for each round (i.e. deadline).  Depending on the draw size, players will play 1 match per 9-16 days.  Emails are sent to players as they advance with their next round opponent and the deadline date for that round.

The tournament relies heavily on the website. Use the website to:

  • Enter the tournament
  • Become familiar with the tournament rules
  • Check out your draw(s)
  • Report your scores
