Saturday Quads (U450)


One of our most popular events, the Quads, are now offered exclusively for beginners rated under CMA 450. This will allow students to be gently introduced

to tournament play with competitors of a similar level. This will also give them a unique chance to play other students of a similar level and increase their CMA rating to reach the next


Players above CMA450 may participate in this event, however, will not be eligible for medals unless there are sufficient players to form  CMA450+ Quads.
