Cool 2008 Fed Cup 1st leg and Olympic Games: sign up here!

Tennis Poker 2008
1st leg: December 30th - February 10th
Gold Coast, Auckland, Sydney, Hobart, Australian Open, Paris, Pattaya City



Itís time to sign up for the next Tennis Poker season!

ALL THE 2007 PLAYERS MUST SIGN UP AGAIN!

Once youíve entered the first leg, you will be automatically included in all the 2008 draws.

New entrants are welcome!

Two nations will face each other in 4 singles and 1 doubles and the team with at least 3 wins out of these 5 matches will go through. The number of entries will decide the exact schedule of the matches; weíll start with a round robin in order to let more people enjoy the game for a longer time without any early elimination and from next year weíll have also a World Group II.

Each team must include at least 2 posters, but no more than 6, in order to let everyone play at least once per leg (4 in the singles and 2 in the doubles).

The outcome of all the matches will be decided comparing the ranking points earned in the Tennis Poker singles tournaments: the plain value for the 4 singles and the geometric mean of the points scored by the two posters who play as a pair in the doubles. Thatís why all the posters who sign up for the team event must have a valid set of five players for the singles.

Sign up here for the singles 1st leg:

Each team will represent a country; a real or even a fantasy one: besides USA, Belgium, Canada and the European Union, last year we had The You Knows, the O.L.D. F.A.R.T.S from Geriatrica and the AdMeans.

A font color will represent your team as well. Please, be sure you choose a color which can be read easily with this boardís backgrounds.

The nation you will pick for Fed Cup will be also the one you will represent at the Olympic Games, if youíre lucky enough to qualify; remember you must play FedCup in order to be eligible to play the Olympic Games. More details can be found here:
http://www.wtaworld.com/showthread.php?t=309408


SIGN UP!

All you need to do:

choose the country your team is going to represent

post the list of the members of your team (at least 2 posters, no more than 6)

be sure you all have signed up correctly for the singles

choose the font color which will be used for your team (optional)



Deadline: December 29th

Thank you, good luck!

I've already added the 15 posters who made the "quick sign-up".

All the players who would like to confirm quickly their 2007 choices may use this thread too:
http://www.wtaworld.com/showthread.php?t=318463

Of course you'll be able to change your mind as many times as you like before the deadline.
