Everyone Versus Armillo

As part of the tournament, Dan Armillo played everyone in the tournament against him (sequentially, not in parallel.) Armillo had to win eleven points against everyone that played against him. Between fifteen and twenty people played a single match to eleven. I believe four of the players each received one point.

Additionally, Armillo could only serve three consecutive times, and he could not kill the ball before three rallies. He actually never killed the ball, with anyone. Despite these setbacks, he was no where near close 'losing' the match.

Below are a few videos which were recorded at the tournament. I always, always label my graphics, but I believe the YouTube titles should be sufficient to identify these videos. These are all the videos which were provided to me which involved Danny Armillo. All videos were recorded on Saturday, March 12, 2011.

In addition to the Armillo destruction which ensued, there were a lot of pointers Armillo gave during each match. He helped all of the players improve, no matter what their level was. One of my favorite things about the tournament my father organizes is the effort that goes into making it a learning experience for everyone.

Stay posted for additional updates. I still have videos from all of the individual matches to upload.
