Super Smash Bros Tournament At Timp

Super Smash Bros Tournament At Timp

Have you gotten bored of beating all your friends and family at Super Smash Bros. Ultimate for the Nintendo Switch? Are you trying to find real challengers in a serious, competitive setting? 

On Friday, May 6th at 12:30, join the Timpview eSports club in the I Lab (I-18) with Dr. Gabbitas and compete in a tournament with some of the school’s strongest competitors who will give you a run for your money! We hope to provide you with a fun time, a welcoming atmosphere, and a good fight if you choose to come! 



If you want to stay updated on what’s happening, here is the Timpview eSports Discord Server: https://discord.gg/xVEVduA8bj


We will be doing pre-tournament sign-ups online and on-the-spot sign-ups. Here is the link to sign up if you want to sign up early: https://challonge.com/timp2022

If you aren’t totally sure if you’ll be able to actually come, still sign up anyway! It won’t be a problem if you sign up and end up not being able to show up.


Please bring your own controller! We cannot confirm if there will be extra controllers to be used, so try to bring your own.


Full setups are appreciated!! (A full setup consists of a Nintendo Switch, a Nintendo Switch Dock, a power cord, and if possible an HDMI cord although some will be provided, Super Smash Bros Ultimate, all additional DLC characters, and a GameCube Controller Adapter if possible.)
