ACL Open #11 - San Diego, CA

Registration opens for ACL Platinum members on Tuesday, April 27th at 6pm PST and remain open until Monday, May 3rd at 6pm PST.


This will be a 3-day event including ACL Rounders, Singles and Doubles. Players MUST play in the Saturday Rounders in order to compete in the open events on Saturday and Sunday.


At this time (April 20, 2021) each player may only bring one guest due to covid restrictions. This may change as the event date gets closer.


Unlike the conference event, this event has a significant venue rental fee. San Diego in June is the place to be! There will be a $10 admission bracelet fee for all players and guests 13 and over. The bracelet is good for the entire weekend and can be purchased when you arrive.

ACL Rounders is a Progressive Round Robin format where all teams are play 6 (or more) rounds against different opponents. The first-round opponents will be random. For each round after the first, teams will be matched up against another team with the same (or similar) record. 1-0 teams will play 1-0 teams. 3-1 teams will play 3-1 teams, or similar. After the 6th round, teams will be divided into 4 groups (Level 1, Level 2, Level 3, Level 4). Players will receive their doubles bracket after rounders which will tell them which level they made it into. The 4 pools of each Level will be put in either 2 or 4 double elimination brackets for Singles depending on the number of entrants (see start times above). Doubles will be double elimination brackets, 2 or 4 brackets per Level depending on the number of entrants (see start times above). All games will be played to 21( except crew cup which will be 10 rounds.) See the full ACL rules/regulations here.


There will be a limit of 512 players that can attend this Open. Early registration will open for ACL Platinum members on Tuesday, April 27th at 6pm PST and remain open until Monday, May 3rd at 6pm PST. If there are open spots after the Platinum Early Bird Registration period, general registration will open to everyone on Tuesday, May 4thh at 6pm PST. If you want to partner with a certain individual, you both will need to register individually and get in the event. For example, if Peter is a platinum player and he registers during the early bird registration, but his partner, Brad who is not a platinum member doesn’t get to register because the event sold out, Peter will have to find a partner who did get registered. It is highly recommended that you purchase a platinum membership to access the early bird registration as this event may sell out quickly. There will NOT be a wait list. Once it is sold out, it is closed. If spots open due to no-shows, we MAY allow walk up registrations on a first come, first served basis.
