Lightbulb 2016 Tennis Poker: proposals to close the sign up process

Tennis Poker 2016
1st leg: January 3rd - February 14th
Brisbane, Shenzhen, Auckland, Sydney, Hobart, Australian Open, St.Petersburg, Kaohslung



It’s time to sign up for the next Tennis Poker season!

ALL THE 2015 PLAYERS MUST SIGN UP AGAIN!

IMPORTANT NOTE: a minimum of 12 players will be required to start the new season.

Once you’ve entered the first leg, you will be automatically included in all the 2016 draws.

New entrants are welcome!

If you have already played in the past seasons, you know what this game is about and you can proceed easily through this sign-up thread as I haven’t planned any major change.

If you're joining for the first time, please take a look at the basic Tennis Poker rules:
2012 Tennis Poker: rules, schedule, events and sign up links! - TennisForum.com


SIGN UP!

All you need to do:

pick your five tennis players

check if that combination has already been chosen


1st leg deadline: January 2nd


Thank you, good luck!

Re: 2016 Tennis Poker: sign up here (deadline January 2nd)!

IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT DOUBLES AND FED CUP!

If you haven’t played doubles and Fed Cup before, you’re welcome!

All you need to do:

find a doubles partner

choose the country your team is going to represent

be sure you have all signed up correctly for the singles



For all the others who competed in the 2015 season, in order to save time in the sign-up process, once you’re in for the singles event your doubles partner and Fed Cup team will be also confirmed unless you state otherwise.

After the 1st leg deadline I will form new pairs for those posters who are left without partner. A Fed Cup team needs at least 2 members but no more than 6: once again after the 1st leg deadline I’m going to help starting new teams if necessary.

The 4 posters who confirmed their presence in the quick sign up thread have already been added.

Everyone is free to change the team till the first deadline.

After that deadline, you will still be able to enter the game, but only with your 2015 8th leg team: changes will start to be effective from the second leg.

Thank you, good luck!

I actually would prefer to take off the Residents of St Anne subtitle (Rosa is fine, I like the flower reference). Too much bad memories of 2015 Really.

Hope that Ceze agrees

Anyway I do need to look at tennis players to change my pick

Notre temps, est arrivé
Connaissons notre force, les femmes
Découvrons-nous des milliers !

I will. It might still pop up here and there in the 2015 results, but starting from 2016 it will go.

Hi Doc!

I will return for another season (if it goes ahead...).

My ambition for the season will be to win something in the second leg .

Thanks!
