The tournament was made up of six teams composed of six players. The teams played a total of 10 games in a best of three matches per game.
Each match was a four minutes.
Candler facility manager Linda Casas and K Club President Patrick Elizondo were pleased 36 students participated.

The most notable play of the tournament was from Rico’s Team player cyber security freshman Andres Sifuentes, as he dove on the court to avoid being hit.
Sifuentes hurt his hand in the process.
During the game, the club passed out fliers for the Backyard Beast.
