Details

Each participating Zehn Center can host qualifying events at their location that will feed a single player/team into a larger WAN Tournament in the weeks following qualifiers.

Zehn WAN events are composed of a  player/team from each competing center in bracketed tournament against teams from other competing centers throughout a single day.

While matches take place between teams via the internet, the teams are all physically located at Zehn Centers around North America. There will be no players or teams playing from home or remote locations. We will be tracking IP address and other data to ensure that all players/teams are only playing from their local certified Zehn Center. 

Seeding for the WAN events will be based on the attendance of each locations qualifier attendance. (i.e. Center A has a qualifier with 20 participants then for the SAME WAN event Center B has a qualifier with 21 participants. Center B’s participant for that specific WAN event will receive a higher seed.)
