The University Club saw the inaugural ‘Anything but A’s’ tournament earlier this month, the first of what will be a yearly weekend event focused on beginner and intermediate players. Sponsored by club member Marty Wall, it was open to players from around the Bay area.
“My motivation for the tournament was to have a tournament for the players that didn’t grow up playing competitively. At other tournaments the “A players” tend to be players that have played for years, but at the University Club at least the majority of our members are B, C, and D players. (Although we have some very good A players too.) By creating a tournament for the B’s, C’s and D’s, we let these players shine in the spot light and get tournament experience.” – Marty Wall
