    How large is this tournament going to be, and how late is it going to go? As I recall there are only 7 courts here.

    We are pretty sure matches will finish before 8pm at latest but our goal is to finish by 7pm. There was a tournament hosted at ABC in the summer with over 200 people and that tournament finish both days by 7pm.

    I was at that tournament. It wasn't a B/C/D/Open flight type of tournament. You had five events for doubles: Under 14, Under 19, Open, Combined Age 60, 85, and 100... And five events for singles: Under 14, 19, Open, Over 30, and Over 50... The reason why the tournament ran so well was that not many people, especially people who were age 19-30, could sign up for more than one event. I am assuming that alot of players who are signing up for the tournament would be signing up for more than one event. If that is the case, then the tournament could take longer.

    In any case, I just wanted to add my two cents and hope that you are able to finish at a timely manner. Good luck!

    The tournament was quite interesting. Not too many players, but there were a small handful of top players from the area. I got myself there to watch both AMS and AMD both days. There were some pretty good games, but all in all, finals wasn't super exciting in either event.

    I noticed that Affinity's website has an error for the AMS results. Minh Nguyen (from Bintang?) actually won first. He beat Balram Thapa in finals in straight sets. Affinity should update their website to reflect the correct results.

    The player from Malaysia in AMD was pretty crazy too. He could have played with pretty much any local AMD player and win easily. It's great to see more and more international players here.
