The problem a “no show” presents is two-fold.
First, we sometimes have teams / players on a wait list who really want to play but do not get seeded into the tournament because there is no available slot for them. If the team dropping out informs the Tournament Director, then a team on the waiting list can be invited to play. Second, there is a hassle the morning of a tournament because the pools have to be redrawn or combined.
In order to avoid having this problem, VBLI has created the following policy:
1. Any team / players who is seeded into a tournament is considered committed to participating and is accountable for under this policy.
2. If it becomes necessary to drop out of a tournament for any reason, the Tournament Director must be contacted via email and followed up by a phone call no later than 5:00pm on Monday before the tournament. (Note: No refund it given as per our Refund and Exchange Policy)
3. If a team / players fails to communicate by the 5:00 pm Monday deadline and is a “NO SHOW” on the day of the tournament, the following sanctions will be imposed:
a. Unpaid teams / players will be assessed the team entry tournament fee which must be paid prior to your next tournament entry, no expections.
