Pre-Registration/Lottery

The Urban Only Pre-registration is over! We'll be annoucning details and sending out tournament registration links before Friday, August 19th.

To be eligible for the Urban Only, you need to have participated in a Standard, Premier, Doubles, or Big Axe league at some point since Season 5 of 2021, which started Oct 10th, 2021. If this upcoming season (Season 4 of 2022) is your first, you are eligible for the Urban Only. Memorial Day Marathon league participants from 2022 are not (currently) eligible.

Over the weekend, we are trying a BRAND NEW AXE THROWING FORMAT,¬†Urban Swiss Tiered Tournaments! No one else has done this before, and we are so excited to try it out and get your feedback ūüėä.¬†Urban Swiss¬†borrows a tournament system from Chess and Esports, and allows throwers to throw more matches, but does not require a full round-robin style system. Combining our commitment to giving all throwers a tournament experience at their level, with Urban Swiss,¬†no one is eliminated after two losses,¬†and everyone is guaranteed to throw 5 matches in their tournament tier.¬†So this means more throwing, against throwers at a similar level to you!¬†Urban Swiss gives all throwers a fair chance to progress through to the elimination stage of the tournament, as well as giving participants equally balanced matches!¬†Want more details, read the full explanation here!

We'll also run the Urban Only Double Elimination Tournament. Using Premier Rules, this format likely feels familiar to anyone who has been to a major tournament before!

Your pre-registration/lottery options are to purchase a ticket for ONLY Urban Swiss Tiered Tournaments, for ONLY the Double Tournament, or BOTH Tournaments if you are interested in participating in both! Please only choose ONE of those three items. Your pre-registration/lottery ticket will go against the cost of the tournaments!

Weekend events will kick off by Friday at 6pm, so plan your travel accordingly! And get those hotel rooms reserved before it is too late! Hotel block information below.
