Breaking the World Record:
The current record, filed with the Guinness Book of World Records, is held in Wise County, Texas – which had 486 participants setting the record in 2014. The organizers at Tide Fest are hoping to break that record at Tide Fest 2017!
As per Guinness rules all competitors must be in the same division and competing for the same title! However, we are encouraging players of both recreational and competitive skill to participate. Each two-player pairing will be guaranteed a minimum of four matches, and will compete in a 5-team division. The round robin portion of the tournament will take place on Saturday. The playoff format will be determined based on the number of registered teams, but will likely be formatted so that the top (2) teams from each division will move on to the playoffs. The Championship and playoffs will be completed on Sunday.
The Washer Toss Tournament will be open to players aged 14+. There will be a licensed area outside of the playing field for those seeking to enjoy a cold beverage in between games.
