WHAT IS RED BULL PROVING GROUNDS

Red Bull Proving Grounds is a regional tournament qualifier that is being hosted by the best tournament organizers in across North America. It is a chance for players with all ranges of experience to come out and prove they are the best in the country! Players
that collect the most amount of points will earn a seat in the Red Bull Battle Grounds
bracket and will be competing as a representative of their region. The tournament
organizers own and operate their own events; Red Bull will be supporting as a partner.

PHASE 1 - QUALIFIER TOURNAMENTS

For 2017, the Red Bull Proving Grounds circuit has expanded to 3 different Canadian
cities, with Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver being the destinations to compete. There will be a total of 3 of our top players (based on points) that will form a team to
participate in the Red Bull Proving Grounds finals.

PHASE 2 - RED BULL PROVING GROUNDS REGIONALS

Red Bull Proving Grounds has doubled in size. There are now 12 Regions to last year's 6 and they've been split into Divisions of East & West. The 6 teams from each Division
will face off against each other in a Round Robin tournament in Santa Monica
California. The top team to come out of that tournament will move onto the Championship Match.

PHASE 3 - CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH
The 2 qualifying teams from each Division will face off in the FInals to determine the
top team in Red Bull Proving Grounds. This will be a 3v3 Team Tournament but the
winning team must win by 2 sets for a conclusive winner.
