I am pleased to present the Timeout King of the Court 2017 tournament as an additional event on the Timeout Beach Series 2017 and the fourth event of the year. It will be hosted at DTS Beach Arena, Windhoek on Sunday 13th August 2017
King of the Court Format
This is a brand-new tournament format for Namibia!
We will only use one court for the whole tournament. Each category will play one after the other on the same court.
• A category (e.g. 2-a-side Ladies) will have a limited / maximum of 5 teams.
• The teams will play three timed rounds.
• The teams with the lowest points in the first and second rounds will be eliminated and the FINAL round will decide the podium positions among the last 3 teams in the category.
• There’s a winner’s side of the court and a challenger’s side of the court.
• Service always comes from the challenger’s side.
• The two teams play just one point, the team that wins the point goes to the winner’s side or stays on the winner’s side.
• The losing team goes to the back of the service queue and the next team challenges the winner’s side.
• To win a team point you must get to the winner’s side first and then win a point on the winner’s side.
1st round – 20 minutes (team with lowest points is eliminated)
2nd round – 15 minutes (team with lowest points is eliminated)
FINAL round – 15 minutes (last three teams to decide podium places)

Hot Sand & Cold Sand!
Please remember that due to the water shortage we have in Namibia, we are not allowed to water the courts to cool the sand. So please prepare yourself and bring a couple of pairs of socks with you to protect your feet.
You could also purchase a pair of REEF Sand Socks from OTB Sports for under N$200 a pair which are a perfect barrier from the heat or cold and stop sand getting inside your socks. Visit either; The Grove, Old Brewery or the Wernhill stores.
