The DUPR Waterfall features a new and innovative format that offers players four (4) competitive matches all within a four-hour period. This revolutionary, amateur-only event will be like none other.

To Register or View Events:

  1. Login to DUPR account or Create DUPR Account

  2. Go to Events Tab within DUPR Dashboard

  3. Search "Waterfall"

  4. Register for a Waterfall near you! *Must have DUPR account in order to register and rating cannot exceed 5.25*

 

Format:

Brackets are formed with 16 teams maximum and after each round, you continue playing against a team with the same sequence of wins-losses. For example, after round three, teams who won their first 2 and lost the 3rd play and teams that lost the first and won the next 2 play. Your sequence matters even though all teams have 2 wins and 1 loss.

 

Brackets:

4 matches will be scheduled within a four-hour designated time window. Brackets will be released 48 hours prior to the start of the tournament. Players sign up with or without a partner and DUPR will create brackets of 16 teams based on the Team Average DUPR.

Bracket Breakdown:

  • Local Waterfalls: 4 brackets (128 players)

  • Regional Waterfall: 8 brackets (256 players)

  • 16 teams maximum per brackets

 

Open Gender / Age Events:

Participants can play with a partner of any age, gender, or level. The common denominator? Play will be competitive, level-based, and DUPR-neutral across demographics.

Maximum DUPR:

Players must have a DUPR of 5.25 or less because the DUPR Waterfall guarantees DUPR-neutral play; the tournament director will have final approval on tournament admission. You will be notified of your bracket (start time) 48 hours prior to the event start date.

 

Partner Differential:

Within the DUPR Algorithm, matches, where players are rated with a difference greater than 1.50, are excluded. Therefore, players may not sign up with a partner outside of that range. So, a 5.0 can’t play with a 3.4, but a 4.9 and a 3.5 could play two players rated a 4.4.

 

Local Platinum Ticket:

The winning team of each bracket will receive one Platinum Ticket to the 2023 DUPR Waterfall Nationals.

 

Regional Platinum Ticket:

The winning team in each of 8 brackets will receive one Platinum Ticket to the 2023 DUPR Waterfall Nationals.

 

Payment:

Payment must be taken through: mydupr.com registration page.

 

Refunds:

No refunds for any reason after the cancellation deadline (2 weeks prior) unless the Registration & Weather Insurance Policy has been purchased prior to the cancellation deadline. If you withdraw before the cancellation deadline, you will be issued a 90% refund. If you are withdrawn from the tournament by the event administration, you will receive a 100% refund.

Refunds will be granted for withdrawals prior to 2 weeks before the event. Simply select the bracket and click “Withdraw”. Email waterfall@mydupr.com if you have refund issues.
