How the event will take place
As a decade old tradition, the Pen Spinning World Tournament 2017 will be the sixth of its kind. It is an individual online competition where 64 spinners from around the world are expected to participate. Each round, pen spinners will be submitting a short video containing a “combo”–a sequence of pen spinning tricks linked together. The first round will be a qualification round, designed to bring the number of remaining spinners down to 32. The rest of the tournament will follow the standard 1v1 knockout format.
The spinner who will have best demonstrated overall mastery of all aspects of pen spinning, which includes execution, difficulty, originality, effectiveness and presentation, will be crowned the next World Champion! The tournament will last approximately 4.5 months, starting in late July and ending in mid December.
